    I always stay up at night.

    Not by choice, but because my brain won't shut off. It's filled with all these thoughts that stress me out even more. It's a never ending cycle.

    At night I have no problem falling asleep.

    It's what happens immediately after that keeps me from sleeping. I'm plagued by horrible dreams. Dreams of pain, suffering, people dying in the most horrible ways possible. Sometimes I am tortured. I awake in the middle of the night, screaming and writhing in agony. I've...

    I try to sleep, I really do,

    but soon as I'm about to sleep, my mind wanders to what others see me as, how my friends act to me, what they really think of me, what they say when my back is turned, and if they'd even care if I died. I sit in bed crying myself to sleep, and sometimes hope I don't wake up...

    the voices in my head just basically remind me of all my mistakes, all my flaws and they just constantly laugh and make fun. Then the sun rises and they shut up.
