I Can't Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,492 People

    No lullabye can put me to sleep; no story,

    no sound nor dream. Tried to close my eyes and concentrate on a single dot, but, the effort is in vain. A hundred sheep only bounced about the clouds and made me wonder about the trajectory. Full of worries, I enveloped my self with two blankets- one to separate me from awake...

    Woke up super early when I didn't have to

    and couldn't go back to sleep. So I started listening to soothing sounds of thunderstorms, rainforests, streams, gardens with flowing water. Now that I'm all relaxed, I now have to get up and go to the bathroom.

    my mind. If only there was a conductor to manage it. Wish my brain would just turn off for a while.

    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...

    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...

    and looking at the night sky getting lost in my thoughts. Im on the 40th floor and the city looks soo beautifull light up. Makes you think there's so many human in this world and how come some of us are alone ? Maybe it's just me. Sometimes it feels like i got the whole world...

    There are nights where I find myself scared

    or anxious about going to sleep, typically when I am on my own. Getting to sleep itself is fine, but there are times where I just want to put off sleeping as much as I can. I think it's probably because I'm scared of being "out of touch" and not within my conscious thoughts. Or...

    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.

    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...

    It been a long day, I have had 8 classes,

    went jogging, and spent 4 hour painting my art homework (plus the thousands of other things that go into a day). I'm utterly exhausted, but I can't fall asleep. I'm so tired that I am crying for the most unreasonable events. I don't know if I should be laughing at my self or not...
