    I hate it when this happens.

    It doesn't happen that often, but when it does, I feel so anxious, bored and agitated. And the worst thing is, everyone else is asleep so I don't have anyone to entertain me or keep my company when I am not able to sleep.

    I love sleep, but I hate falling asleep,

    it's terrifying to me now. I try to fight it, honestly, the feeling of falling into some sort of darkness, and not even realizing what's happening is scary to me, how you could die, and you wouldn't even know. Anytime I catch myself right before I'm fully asleep, I have some...

    Insomnia.... In the early hours of the morning.

    No matter what time I fall asleep or how tired I am, I only seem to manage a few hours each night. My body feels drained and I feel like I'm sleep walking through each day.

    Every night is the same,

    cannot sleep. I take pills to aid sleep, but they doesn't seem to work anymore. I talk to myself until I catch some sleep. That's usually around 4 am. I'm totally unsatisfied with my job, and a lot of stuff on my life. I really don't know where I'm going to end up or how...

    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...
