I Cant Sleep At Night

    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...

    Let's talk sleeping pills.

    .. I haven't been able to get a good night's sleep for a long time now. I feel that I'm too paranoid of a person and I am woken up by any little sound. This week it's come to its peak. I became ill today from my lack of sleep. I couldn't even go to work. I take dimenhydrinate...

    For a brief moment, I got to experience several

    nights of what I felt was good sleep. I'd fall deep into a peaceful, inner world with vivid dreams and sometimes just complete darkness and silence, just the way I like it. The best part was waking up the next morning feeling refreshed and excited for a brand new day. But just...

    Another night, another dream.

    .. But they aren't dreams anymore... They're so real.. So vivid... I wake up in tears, panicking and just wishing it would stop.... I haven't had these dreams since I was fifteen... And now that I'm reliving the trama, the dreams of him are never ending....

    It has been a rough day.

    I can't sleep knowing my mom is nearing the end of her life. I cried a river today. On top of that today is my fathers birthday, he passed 4 years ago. For any young adults reading this, cherish your parents for one day they will be gone.

    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.

    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 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...

    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 can't sleep. I'm stressed

    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...

    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...
