    Every night I try to sleep

    but I can't because every aspect of my day then my week run through my head. I revisit conversations or messages and start to overthink them and what they meant. The I overthink life and start finding faults in my self until I end up crying for an hour or two. I get stressed...

    I can't sleep really.

    Have to try. Even tho I'll probably get no where, but looking at the back of my eye lids. They say when you can't sleep it means you're stuck in somebody else's nightmares, or they're thinking about you, or you have sleep apnea. Maybe all three :p

    I wake up a lot, and sometimes I can't get back

    to sleep. All through out the night. Get's old fast. Sometimes my dreams are so vivid they wake me up too? Doomed. Lol I'm constantly going on like four hours of sleep. My dark circles will eventually consume my face.

    Honestly I'm afraid to go to sleep.

    And there's the fact I can't. I hate sleeping alone. I love the feeling that there's another living thing near me. I have nightmares about being chased by a cloaked figure, soon after seeing the figure I turn around and run. I always end up jumping off something high and dying...

    For the last 2-3 months I fall asleep then

    after about 3-5 hours wake up and toss and turn the rest of the night. I was totally exhausted all the time; I would come home from work and instantly fall asleep but never for long. I was getting really stressed out from that and work so I went to a doctor. He prescribed me...

    Can't sleep again... maybe it's the fact

    that I have school in the morning and I really don't want to go. I also haven't done my homework for maths. I hate maths. I hate school. Meh:(((

    I've never been able to.

    I suffer from insomnia,

    too. Some nights are worse than others. If I get 4 hours in a row then I am doing great. It's mostly just my mind racing along and I can't always slow it down. I now just read until I fall asleep.

    This is the third night I haven't been able to

    sleep. I believe it's because of a horrible habit that I've been practicing for years now. Trying to accomplish everything at once. Now I'm stressed and have insomnia. One day I'm going to get it right, and when I lay my head down for rest my mind will follow suit.

    I hate the night time seriously.

    It's the time where I start thinking about how lonely I am. I day dream about who I can't have. Who hates me. How no one is texting me. I'm just lonely.

    that I am falling asleep in my chair. When I get to bed my mind justs laughs and kicks into high gear. What's up with that? How do others cope?

    I can't seem to get comfortable,
