    It's nice seeing you today. I don't have to be up for work in four hours or anything. Ugh. This is going to be a long day. And it hasn't even started yet.

    Oh I don't know, the thought

    that I could just drift off into the darkness and never wake up, without knowing. That scares me a lil bit

    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. It makes my stomach turn inside out, sending shooting pains up my spine. I just want sleep. Beautiful, restful, needful sleep. Even if for a few...

    restless days sleepless nights a squeak becomes

    a sound a trumpet a battle cry. a touch becomes a grasp a hold a tightened hand wrapped around the flesh. restless days and sleepless nights.

    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:(((

    High

    I've been on a high and didn't recognise it, now I've plummeted into the abyss. During my high I had a troll playing with my head and as a consequence I no longer know who on my friends list or off it are him, he's played on the fact I'm not very bright and because I've been ill...

    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...

    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...

    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 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 always stay up at night.

    Not by choice, but because my brain won't shut off. It's filled with all these thoughts that stress me out even more. It's a never ending cycle.

    The easiest time to fall

    for me is after 5 am and that's when I get up to do stuff I would love to talk with some one, anybody, probably about anything so that I'm not pondering alone, staring at a screen or the ceiling wandering about something or someone, wandering why nothing matches up for long...
