    I fell asleep for a couple hours

    after supper tonight, and now that I'm up again I don't feel even a little bit sleepy. I don't know what to do. I don't want to lie down and do nothing for a few hours, there aren't any books I want to read, nothing I want to watch, no video games I want to play. I probably...

    Lately I've been having trouble with falling

    asleep. Then throughout the day I'd have killer headaches due to my lack of sleep, ugh it's so frustrating

    Oh if I could only have a good nights sleep

    again. Sleeping in this big bed alone is so excruciating. Having him beside me for ten years...and then to wake up with an empty spot beside me. How is anyone suppose to get use to that? I find myself reaching out for him through the night only to find a bare space :( I know...

    Why is it that every day I have to get up

    for work, it's a struggle to get out of bed? Today I can actually have a lie in and it feels like I've been awake for hours!

    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...

    I SHOULD be asleep! Why not?

    I'm on 2 days off. I want to relax and be lazy like everyone else does. Instead I fix and work and clean and do....I'm just not "lazy." Plus I REALLY want pizza.

    I can't sleep because all I can think about is

    how I'm pretty sure I got roofied last night... I was hanging out with this guy I used to date. And he asked of I wanted to go back to his place. I said sure, but let him know upfront we would not be having sex. He said it was fine and we went on about our evening. We started...

    Times like this are when I wonder "Watdefuq am

    I doing awake?" But historically it seems sleep was in chunks, not one lengthy session, so maybe the problem is not with me, but my expectations (thank you, disinfo).
