    For The Past Two And A Half Hours

    I have been trying to sleep. I really thought I was tired. But I am not sure what is preventing me from sleeping. This has been happening a lot. It might be the numerous things that are inside my head. Crazy things inside my head. Does this really prevent you from sleeping? I...

    Restlessness.

    I can't sleep when I have a lot of things on my mind... So pretty much every night. It takes me hours upon hours to fall asleep, and when I finally do, there's no guarantee that I'll stay in a comatose state. Half of the time, I'll end up dreaming something crazy, waking up, and...

    Equanimous Days

    New meaning can redefine past experience, just as time heals all wounds.Shortly after becoming familiar with this term, I noticed when it was used to describe the response from a crew of deep sea fishermen caught in high winds as they pulled together to weather a storm.Equanimity...

    it's strange i always find it hard to fall

    asleep at night, yeah, since the day we broke up. I'm afraid of sleeping alone at night so what i usually do is to find someone and talk, just about anything that comes in my mind to not make myself feel lonely. I am sick and tired of this feeling. I dislike being alone...

    Can't relax tonight. I wish I could leave work

    at the office and yet here I am not sleeping and stressing instead. Deep breaths for some mediation--- let's hope this works. I wish our brains had an off switch!

    I have insomnia almost every night.

    I used to be bullied in school and those kids would make me ashamed of myself because I was different. All the mean things they said to me back in those days comes back in my head almost every night. I starting to forget, and I guess thats a start. There's a start for everything...

    Every Night

    I analyze everything, perhaps over analyze. I think all the time at night and then I don't sleep and this will go on for days at a time-insomnia. I really enjoy sleeping, but it's hard for me not to think.

    I was literally going crazy with thoughts last

    night. Letting them get to me. I would get to work and the few I had one would call off. We don't make enough money to support ourselves let alone an 8 month old baby. I miss my sister who passed away. Well going to bed at 1:30 and waking up at 5 actually didn't phase me much. I...

    No Sleep

    It seems things never seem to be settled before I tuck myself between the sheets. I worry about what cup I left unwashed, if the doors are locked, if I blew out the candle. I worry about what my husband did that day, or who. I worry about what bill comes up next and if I mailed...
