    Good sleep is a rarity

    for me. Most of the time I can't sleep 2 hours straight unless I'm really exhausted or sick. Theres always some reason to get up be it to go to the bathroom, a random sensation of falling, or just my own nightmares keeping me awake. It doesn't help with my depression very much...

    I remembered when I watched The Hills Have Eyes.

    I couldn't sleep for a week. After that, I still had to have the lights on and door locked.

    I can't sleep because I see

    and hear things. I'll see faces or shapes that are not there, or I always feel like someone is watching me. Whenever I'm alone, I always have a feeling that someone is following me or watching me, and I have to look around or behind me every 5 or 10 seconds.

    I find my thought processes a lot clearer in

    the stillness of the dark. The hustle and bustle of the day tends to leave my mind reeling, searching for an escape route to make sense of the content I've poured into it. I imagine my mind something like that painting of the screaming face during daylight hours. Wanting to...

    I toss and turn all night.

    The best sleep I get is 15 minutes before the alarm goes off.

    I don't sleep very easily.

    It takes me forever to fall asleep. It's like I'm tired but I can't sleep. I wish I was able to actually get some sleep because I usually only get 3-5 hours of sleep daily and most of it happens during the actual day.

    Or the entire night. Chronic insomniac,

    here. No matter how tired I am, I cannot fall asleep for at least a few hours after crawling into bed. Since the first week of May, I've been lucky to get five hours, usually from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. More commonly, I only get two hours. Most nights, I get absolutely nothing. Two...

    Story of my life. Maybe I should get a job

    where I can work the graveyard shift. Perhaps sleep would be easier to acquire in the daytime.

    I try to go to bed between 10

    and midnight every night. However, I have this annoying habit of waking up about 2 or 3 hours after I've gone to bed and being unable to fall back asleep right away. Asi es la vida!
