    It's 12:30am, I have to be up at 5am.

    Can't sleep. It seems perfect right now though. The peaceful sound of rain, books, music, no one running around. If only there wasn't this constant feeling of emptiness and loneliness along with the thought of suicide in my head..

    On my balcony listening to music

    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...

    I've been getting 3 hours of sleep max every

    night. I'm tired when I try to sleep but get a rush of panic and energy when I lay down for a bit. The sleep I do get is marred with dreams of me losing touch with reality. I had one where I was punching my cat in the face. I woke up afraid I had actually harmed her. I dreamed...

    I'm laying here at 5am

    and just can't seem to sleep. I'm anxious, and just can't seem to calm down.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I haven't slept in two days,

    and I am starting to hallucinate. It's really scary, and I want to go to sleep, but something is holding my eyelids and whispering, ?don't you dare close them. ? I just really want to sleep.

    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 can’t wait any longer hoping

    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...
