    I will become like a walking zombie

    if this keeps up. Don't want to feel as if I am just going through the motions in life.

    Lots of thoughts ruminating in my head.

    Difficult to relax them and fall into slumber.

    I would sometimes get some sleep in a few hours

    or less than an hour. But sometimes I would just get no sleep from over thinking what's on my mind and how I feel.

    It would be lovely to have someone to speak to,

    when I can't sleep at night. Rather than lay in the darkness and fester.

    Even the smallest thing like talking to someone

    new or being scared for tomorrow automatically means I can't sleep.

    It would be great if humans could turn on

    and off their emotions. We probably would not be considered human anymore but just to have the option would be great. Its so hard having so many emotions at once and they don't go away easily. Ugh! I just don't want to feel this way anymore but I know its going to take time. I...

    Hate when you truly open up to someone about

    your life and they tell you their feelings but then a few minutes later you see he's been asking other women about their sexual fantasies!!!

    Ok, last night on the news they said

    that the moon and 5 planets would be in line and visable in the southern sky this morning. They were right. Why do I know this? Because I can't sleep!!! What is going on with my internal clock!

    I can't sleep, I don't think I will tonight.

    I don't know what to do or how to filter my thoughts. I need someone to talk to but I don't want to seem weak to my friends or make them listen to my bullshit. It'll be easier if my problems could be fixed or they could go away but they can't. I just have to learn how to deal...

    Hmm I have realized that I always make patterns

    with everything. From what I eat to even my day-to-day activities. It's hard to break patterns and I honestly don't think anything is wrong with the way I am. Consistency is key!!!

    perhaps its the lack of sleep. i cant help but contemplate on my current issue....it seems that in solitude i can write, preform songs and paint. Though when i have friends and i no longer have such solitude or time alone, i can't seem to do all these things that i love as...
