I Can't Sleep

    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.

    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

    Does anxiety keep anyone else up at night?

    "good Night..." ...silence...

    It is 11:45 pm. The house is quiet and dark and all I can hear is the hum of my laptop and the whirr of the electric fan. Work doesn't start up again until next week, and so I am allowing myself to be naughty and stay up later than my usual 9:30 sleepy time. I have exhausted FB...

    so damn hard to FALL asleep and then even harder to STAY asleep, dammit!! About the only sure fire way I have found is to be physically exhausted. Totally whooped! Either that or drink too many beers, lol. Between the two, I get by. And went grey at 25 so there's a price to pay...

    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...

    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...

    Yep. Pulled an all nighter.

    It's like every night literally every night I

    can't sleep with absolutely nothing to do. What's worst about this is that all the thoughts and memories that are supposed to be repressed starts creepin up again. It's only the summer nights that does this to me. So who else have these nights???
