    There's just too much going through my head

    right now, and I've been remembering my nightmarish dreams these past few nights. I want the static to go away. I wanna sleep. I've only been up since 9 a.m. after fimally falling asleep at 3 a.m. last night, and it's only 4 a.m. now. Wouldn't be as bad if I could keep occupied...

    I hate when I get like this.

    I am feeling down now. It's hard to talk about. Being told things brings me down. I don't want others to bring me down . It hurts like hell and that saying with sticks and stones is completely false because words do hurt. I just don't know anymore. I don't want to be held back...

    I am tired but I don't want I sleep.

    I want to stay up and talk to you :) if I slept whenever I was tired then I would always be asleep. I'm always tired whether it be mentally, or physically. Sometimes both. I always exhaust myself sometimes by accident.

    and I can't sleep because of the horrible things

    that people do to animals. Only when the human race stops picking on poor innocent animals, will I be able to sleep.

    True. Invited to go out

    but I'm too lazy. Do I need to try again and sleep or just leave and have some drink?

    Let's talk sleeping pills.

    .. I haven't been able to get a good night's sleep for a long time now. I feel that I'm too paranoid of a person and I am woken up by any little sound. This week it's come to its peak. I became ill today from my lack of sleep. I couldn't even go to work. I take dimenhydrinate...

    I'm tired emotionally-but it's not like that's

    going away anytime soon. Sleep would help temporarily however. I can't shut off my mind long enough for me to fall asleep, even though I should, Yet I was able to fall in love in a second when I shouldn't have-I find that funny. I'm not even sure what I'm thinking, Let's see...

    It's more along the lines of.

    Im tired but don't want to sleep. When you sleep you are using up hours that you could be using for better things. I try to keep my sleeping to a minimum so I can get the most out of a day. Sometimes I do sleep for a long time though because I do know that we need sleep.
