    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.

    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.

    I feel like there's another presence in my room

    and it's freaking me out really badly. Omg I'm such a scardy cat. I went down to the kitchen earlier on for a drink and I felt like something was outside in the backyard staring in, naturally I'd turned all the lights on and rushed back upstairs to my room but I feel like...

    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...

    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 haven't slept in a week,

    can't stop thinking about the things I could have done differently. Things I could have changed. I need to rest and sleep. Many assignments to finish and stuff to get done. Very hard to do with no energy.

    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...
