    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...

    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.

    Too much going on in my life right now.

    Too many demands on my time. I am the ultimate juggler! I know hard times are temporary but right now can't see much light at the end of the tunnel ...

    My husband is a drug addict.

    I sent him away on the 29th Dec as he was very abusive and violent. I keep thinking that my husband might die. And I keep thinking of me crying at the funeral with my parents by my side and then those ugly witches of my in laws saying nasty things to me. Yeah I'm not gonna sleep...

    I cant sleep. I think the caffeine in the tea I

    drank is keeping me awake. I didnt even thinknavout it when I drank it. I hardly ever drink things with caffeine so when I drink it it can screw with my sleep. ugh! this sucks!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    5:18 am been up for a few hours,

    listening to my boys cough. I sat on their bed watched them sleep. I miss them. Everyday, something new happens, whether a new smile, joke or sometimes sorrow, i miss them. I hate to see them leave on Sunday. My youngest always keeps a hand on his oldest brother as they sleep...
