    All this week I have been having nightmares

    and weird dreams. It's hard to comprehend them and to try to figure them out. I feel like something is near me hen I wake but all I see is darkness. I wake up at 4 AM or 6 AM and then I go back to sleep an have another dream. This sucks :)

    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...

    I've never been able to.

    The second my eyelids are heavy enough to close, my thought engulf me. They rush in like an angry storm drowning any sign of peace. It makes my stomach turn inside out, sending shooting pains up my spine. I just want sleep. Beautiful, restful, needful sleep. Even if for a few...

    Anxiety,depression, worries about the future,

    High

    I've been on a high and didn't recognise it, now I've plummeted into the abyss. During my high I had a troll playing with my head and as a consequence I no longer know who on my friends list or off it are him, he's played on the fact I'm not very bright and because I've been ill...

    I can't seem to get comfortable,

    I toss and turn constantly. When I do end up starting to fall asleep, something wakes me up. I can never seem to stay sleeping, I wake up several times in one night and various hours. Each night is different. Some nights I can't close my eyes without seeing something bad or...

    restless days sleepless nights a squeak becomes

    a sound a trumpet a battle cry. a touch becomes a grasp a hold a tightened hand wrapped around the flesh. restless days and sleepless nights.

    Every night I try to sleep like a normal person.

    I toss and turn for a while, then I finally sleep and then I wake up in a hour. The exact same thing happens every hour. I basically gave up, and now I usually just stay up all night, or go to sleep at 5-9am, and I wake up around 2-5 pm.

    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...

    The easiest time to fall

    for me is after 5 am and that's when I get up to do stuff I would love to talk with some one, anybody, probably about anything so that I'm not pondering alone, staring at a screen or the ceiling wandering about something or someone, wandering why nothing matches up for long...

    Sometimes the memories

    that sneak up are overwhelming especially with the emotions that follow. And when I fall weak it makes the night that much longer.

    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:(((

    morning after over thinking possibly every last aspect of my life, just to be woken up by people arguing four hours later. My migraine made me want to bang my head against a wall, I'd been crying for hours. I'm slowly losing my mind, as if my brain is just singeing away, I'm...
