I Cant Sleep At Night

    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 , I just want 2 sleep. Without being woken, without getting sick, without feeling my world crack and shatter all around me . I haven't slept in so...

    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.

    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

    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 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.

    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?

    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...
