    My sleep schedule is beyond messed up. Awake all night sleep part of the day. Difficult to sleep when your mind is racing near the speed of light or you feel the need to read and look up every single stupid thought that pops into your head at odd hours of the night. So here I am...

    Once I had a friend with whom I first discovered what a powerful drug lack of sleep can actually be. We'd stay awake talking on the phone way past 2am, which is when "the drug", as we called it, would commonly kick in. I've had some of the most wonderful conversations in the...

    Can't sleep once again.

    My mind is racing to fast and I can't control it. I just want to ask every question that has ever been asked all at once. Can't say I don't mind being awake though. I usually use this time to really think about life and how it's going. It relaxing and stressful at the same time...

    Yes it's crazy... I wake up sometimes in the middle of the night and get it on with my husband. And it's usually the best sex we have. Does this happen to anyone else?
