    Not sure how I feel. Numb?

    Crushed? In disbelief of what just happened? Proud? Perhaps all of the above. . . I walked away from a bad situation tonight. I was faced with something I wanted so bad, & it was right there in front of me. I was wanted. I was sexy. I gave someone "champagne bubbles for three...

    I can't sleep when I want too.

    That's my issue. I keep falling asleep in the middle of the day or really early in the night and I can't stay up. Then when I feel dead tired and want to sleep I can't. Like tonight. I had a wicked bad headache and it was making my head kill. Then the next thing I know I'm...

    It's 3:30 am and i can't fall asleep cuz of the

    damn depression. It bites having to wait till my body is too tired to get through it and sleep.

    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 can't sleep til 3am+

    and on the weekends when I wake up around 2'o'clock I'm exhausted. I've had a history with self harm, anxiety and depression so could these be related? This wasn't recent, but before I sleepwalked downstairs and went to pee in a bin before my mom stopped me but in the morning I...

    It's now 4am, and I'm not

    even remotely tired, even after taking sleeping pills and trying to sleep for 3 hours. In 5 hours I have to bring my car to the mechanic and I have loads to do all day when my car is done, so I can't get a powernap during the day.

    Coffee after work was a terrible idea. On the bright side, watched the sun rise.

    I still am having problems sleeping at night.

    I want to find a natural way to help me sleep. I don't want to rely on a pill to do so. Anyone have any tips?

    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...

    I have these random nights

    where I just don't sleep and then I stay up all day. Tonight will mark 48 hours of no sleep. I've tried several methods and they just don't work. Tonight I'm just laying in the dark listening to calming instrumentals. My mind is racing :3

    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.

    I can't sleep anymore.

    Life's stresses seem to be getting to me. I feel like I'm starting to lose the grip on my sanity. It's weird but at the same time this new mentality that's starting to form is one I think has been long coming. Not from lack of sleep but from being the nice guy who is always...
