    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 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

    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'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...

    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.

    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 can't seem to get comfortable,

    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...
