    Yeah, like right now.

    I have to be awake in 4 hours and I cant sleep. No, I did not put a ' on cant.... Anyways, I'm trading sleep for happiness. Thanks antidepressants. So, I really can't complain that much, but it has been several... several days since I got real good sleep. The sleepy pills...

    So fed up with not being able to sleep.

    I can't remember the last time I had a long, blissful sleep. I hate waking in the night, thinking it is only 3 hours till I have to get up, got to get some sleep. Just that knowledge alone keeps me awake. Oh well...maybe tonight will be different.

    Up late, 2:45 here. Making fairies with wire,

    embroidery thread, silk flowers and wooden beads. Time to finish my drink so I can crash. Ginger soda, rhubarb syrup and a hard peppermint.

    and relax before bed, otherwise it's impossible for me to fall asleep.

    I wish I could sleep more

    than my usual five of six hours, but I wake and if I try to go back to sleep I'll get a migraine style headache.So, I stay up until I really can't keep my eyes open, then go to sleep naked in cold sheets.I wish I could have so lie in every so often.

    Definitely more than "a bit" of an insomniac.

    If I'm lucky, I can get two or three hours of sleep a night. I think it's partially stress related, but even at low-stress times in my life, I just seem unable to sleep as much as "normal". Sometimes I hate it, and other times I love being awake when no one else is, when I can...

    I'm buying a shotgun

    so I can shoot every damn bird that chirps telling me morning has come and yet again I got less than an hour of sleep. people may lose their lives today if they maintain their standard level of ridiculousness at work later.

    An Insomniac Waxes While Trying To Wane

    I spend my sleepless nights staring into wordy pages or looking out an empty window. Time seems to roll slowly during these times, and the mind unfolds precariously into delicate abysses.Every thought seems louder and more present than usual.Every preoccupation increases a...

    My current sleeping pattern is

    as follows. I can't sleep all night so stay up then fall asleep at about 2pm. Then I wake up at 6:30pm. Try to sleep that night but don't feel tired at all and so the cycle repeats itself. I pull an all nighter and stay up all day before going to sleep at 11:30pm to try and...

    Oh insomnia, the mistress of my dreams,

    how foolish of me to think my daylight thoughts could cast even a shadow, over our Gothic conception.

    Sleeplessness is no fun.

    I would love to sleep a good 8 hours. I'm sure I would feel refreshed.
