    What can I say? I love my sleep.

    It's an escape from this world we live in. This world in which there are things like pain, suffering, famine, natural disasters and more. I'm sure there are good things about this world, but in my opinion the bad definitely seems to outweigh the good. Unfortunate really...

    I have a sleep disorder.

    No matter how exhausted I am, if I don't take something to sleep I will either not sleep or only sleep for 2 or 3 hours. Which is bad news when you have a mental illness. So, I take sleeping pills. And it does not matter how long I sleep or what I do to combat fatigue when I am...

    no matter how much sleep I get, I crave the weekends to laze about.

    Hey, I am always tired.

    I work long-ish hours, 10-11hrs per day 5 days per week. I don't do a lot of exercise, mainly because I don't have the time in the week because I am just so tired when I get home from work to do any and at the weekend I feel like I need to catch up on sleep. I eat well and try...

    I'm pretty miserable right now.

    Some could argue that I have no right to be. I have a roof over my head, a job, a family (however dysfunctional), a car (that was given to me by my best friend), and a boyfriend that cares for and supports me. On paper, I should be ecstatic. But I'm not. My job stresses me out...

    Tired of everything. I wake up

    and I'm already tired. (Physically also). It's just another day of getting myself disappointed because I'm not the smartest or have the best work ethic for college. It's gotten so bad that I missed so many classes and I might fail this semester again. I'm just..... Tired.

    I don't know what it feels like to not be tired.

    I've been exhausted every day of my life for the past 10 years or so now. Either my insomnia keeps me up all night or my depression makes me sleep all day, ever day. Even when I get a normal 6-8 hours of good sleep, I'm still sleepy all day. There may be some underlying health...

    I don't want to leave my apartment.

    It's too cold, it's too rainy, and I'm way too tired to even drag myself out of bed. It's been too long since I've had a good 8 hours of sleep. Why is it so incredibly hard?

    I'm so behind on homework.

    I hate work. I always want to sleep. I just lack motivation to do anything anymore. I use to be so involved with my community but I feel burnt out. I hate college. I just want to live life a little.

    It's so hard to get up from bed

    or in any comfortable sitting position. The whole body resists and it's painful to always feel like your body is saying no to all activities, so much so that it's hard to go about daily requirements, whether morning or night. All I do is hang around on the internet.
