    I've never been able to.

    I can't seem to get comfortable,

    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...

    I suppose this experience is more of a question.

    . I went out with some friends. I had drinks before we went out. At some point I ran into the guy I had been sorta dating a month before. I messed up bad with him. By that point I was black out drunk. The last thing I remember was him walking away. I have no recollection of what...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Hello insomiac friends !

    ! just joined this thing. I love night time, it's so beautiful in it's peace but at the same time full of chaos. But also It's when my thoughts and demons decide to have a party in my head, and it's hard not to miss the people that are gone. I'm guessing I'm not the only one here...
