    Who feels like talking,

    I'm all for it. I'm a dumb 14 year old kid who has problems and will listen to yours. We can talk about music or life or stuff.

    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...

    Out of four kids, two of us blame " mom"

    for giving us the genes to go to bed at 10 pm, wake up at 2 am wide awake thinking we slept all night. Stay up an hour usually can sleep the rest of the night. Mom? Would stay awake all night, eventually doing some kind of work.

    Hopefully tonight I can get some sleep.

    A lot of my worries has diminished, and I think it will help me some. Plus I got my phone back, so some guided meditation will do good.

    10 pm: I try to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

    11 pm: Instead, I spend an hour staring at a ceiling. Admitting defeat I get up to try to tire myself out. 2 am: I decide to do something useful while Iโ€™m up and finish a creative piece of writing. 4 am: Iโ€™ve finished my piece of writing. Iโ€™m tired but mentally alert...

    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.
