    I'm laying here at 5am

    and just can't seem to sleep. I'm anxious, and just can't seem to calm down.

    Be Quiet Brain.

    I turned back my bed, cranked up the electric blanket but I can't sleep.  If I get in I'll just lay there.  I know it.  Too many active thoughts.  Things are left unsaid, undone.  I wish I had a way to switch off my brain sometimes. I am always...

    Let's Partyyyyyy

    Let's party or do something loud until I fall asleep. It sucks, I have been awake all night as usual. I don't know if it's some kind of a habit or if it's actually insomnia. I just can't seem to fall asleep. I try closing my eyes trying to sleep but nothing happens so I...

    It's not that I'm not sleeping.

    I'm sleeping but I'm restless. I use my Fitbit to track my sleep and according to it - I could be in bed for 10 hours and 9 of those hours is me being restless which doesn't count as sleep because I'm tossing and turning in bed... I don't know what the problem is. I feel like I...

    Every Night I Fall Asleep At 1 A.M

    I really don't know why, I can go to bed at 8 and literally stare at a wall for the next 3 hours. I'm too young for sleep medications and am not allowed to do anything else. I usually spend this time plotting (not evil villain plotting just plans for the future). I don't know...

    So I woke up today at 2.

    36am and I've just been having cup after cup of tea all morning. It's because I'm sick but I have something important going on today and I can't afford to be ill. It is now 5.53am. Time to start getting ready :) Hopefully I'll feel a bit better soon.

    I was doing so well with getting more sleep

    and now I'm sitting here bored at 1 am wondering what the hell to do tonight. I'm caught up on work and everything else I can think of is too noisy.

    I hate that I can't fall asleep

    before five in the morning, and sometimes I don't go to bed at all. The only time I ever go to sleep before five is when I've been drinking. The worst part is the boredom.
