I Cant Sleep At Night

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,256 People

    Lately I can't get any sleep at night.

    For some reason I can't sleep until the sun starts to come up. Is it possible for a human to be nocturnal??

    4:00am and I am still up.

    I hate this. No one to talk to. I hate to ***** about it but it has been too long since I slept normally. damn DST is cutting an hour out to boot.

    I can't sleep anymore.

    . I sit in my bed and think about my mistakes over and over again yet I can't do anything because I am sitting in my bed. I have enormous amount of stress at night

    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.

    Debating whether to continue to lay in bed,

    listen to music and aimlessly browse social media or get up and work on a Korrasami AMV. :3 probably lay in bed; I am tired, just can't sleep.

    Had finally fallen asleep at 11:00am this

    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...

    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...

    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 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

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    lately for about a week I get tired to the point

    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?
