    Sleep, you are a cold-hearted Jezebel...

    O Sleep, how I would like to have you in my life, but you are as elusive and fickle as an emotionally-unavailable commitmentphobe.  I am soooo tired, I feel like a zombie, yet you remain cold-hearted and only flirt with me, leading me on like the tease you are, so I...

    *salivates At Thought of Sleep*

    I am so wrecked from too many late nights that last into the morning, spent working. I am all hyper at school, a little giddy and giggly, like I'm running on adrenalin, and the other day my hands were shaking the whole day - from nerves, anger, and then adrenalin from run-run...

    The Gift

    It was because of you that I slept soundly again. Your love eased my troubled mind and heart. And it's because of you that I'm now awake at 4 a.m. Here I go again back to sleepless nights and groggy days. Sleep was a precious gift you gave to me. Now it's gone.

    With all the things going on,

    I am sleep deprived. It's like there is not enough hours in a day to get everything done, which makes me have anxiety attacks. Long nights and early mornings everyday. And even when I do finally lay down to go to sleep, it takes at least 2 hours for me to actually fall asleep...

    Blame It On Work

    We got some bad information at work the other day and it led to me staying awake for 36 straight hours.  Not bad news, just led to a lot more work than it should have. Way too long without sleep, given that I usually get only seven or so hours of sleep per night (I need...

    Turning Over A New Leaf

    Tonight I will begin sleeping at least 8 hours a night. I have been sleep deprived most of my life due to over-extending myself with work, obligations to others, partying, child care, and demands on myself. Now that I am 44, my health really seems to have taken a hit. I have...
