    I've been up for so long

    since the weekend has been very busy. So exhausted, and yet I can't fall asleep. I haven't been this depressed since college, and it's very frustrating to be in a vicious circle. It could very well be because it's quiet at night. All alone with thoughts. I'm going to try...

    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...

    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...

    Head hurts. Everytime I close my eyes my heart

    starts to race and I get a burst of energy. I have this feeling of dread. Something bad is about to happen. I hate this.

    Honestly, I think my body just hates me.

    Or something is broken with it because no matter how tired I am, if I go to bed before 3-4 am I can't sleep!! I physically can't. I mean, I'll sleep for a few minutes to a half an hour but I can't fully get a deep sleep until the sun starts to come up. It sucks!!

    I thought I had it all worked out.

    Everything seems to go great. Yet I can't sleep at night. I feel so bad. I've dealt with depression before and I thought that I had moved past it but it's all coming back at night when I'm just laying there. It's so frustrating not being able to sleep. I feel like I'm...

    It's one of those bad nights.

    I can't go to sleep, I'm tired but not tired enough to fall asleep. Insomnia, mixed with horrific nightmares that happen if I fall asleep when I'm not tired enough create a deadly mix. Love sleep, but loathe it. I hope I can get myself together in time for when school begins...

    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'm stressed about this latest job interview.

    They do a back check, which is fine, then conduct another interview with you regarding what they find. I have no criminal history, and everything I put on my resume is the truth. But I just know they're going to judge me on a few things. Personal matters. It feels like an...

    and my eyes sting. I yawn and put my head in the pillow and sleep just does not want to come. I rode about 55km today - maybe 30miles? I feel good but sore and my neck feels like it will snap off but laying here and no sleep comes, so I get my phone and babble on here to no...
