    I only like to sleep

    when I'm not supposed to. I love to sleep during the day. So I chose to work nights. Unfortunately I'm awake at 2am while my family sleeps on my day off. Tomorrow will be rough..

    Ever since summer began,

    I've lost contact with all of the friends that said they would stay in touch. I'm an artist, I write music, guitar's my specialty. When I do fall asleep, usually at 6am. I wake up feeling sick to my stomach, in late afternoon. I'm starting to develop an eating disorder. I...

    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 lay awake at night,

    either on my IPad mini, or imagining me when I'm older in high school. I close my eyes, so I can imagine more clear. Then, as I get deeper in the image..I slowly fall asleep. If I'm on my IPad, I just search "How To Fall Asleep" 😊 Yes, so anyways, if you can't sleep, I...

    I always end up over thinking about things

    and texting people and I usually end up going to bed around 1 or 2 in the morning.-.

    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 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.

    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 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 never sleep. I always have this weight on

    my chest and when I'm alone in the dark I feel it the most. I am scared of the future and worried about school. I don't get along with my family so I have no one to go to. I just want to lift the weight off but I can't.

    Been missing sleep at night

    for three weeks now. I take naps during the daytime. I wouldn't call it worrying. Its mostly paranoia. So I stay up long enough til sun shines then go to sleep. I don't like the dark. Sad being 34 and afraid to sleep at night.

    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.

    I usually go to bed between 3am

    and 9am and end up waking up at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I waste the whole day and barely get anything accomplished. Sometimes I wish I could go to sleep early and wake up early without having to take medications to force myself to sleep.
