    I want it and I want it now.

    A week ago tonight I had the best time of my life with my girlfriend at my prom. No, we didn't have sex, but it was the 2nd time in person that I saw her (the first was a little under 2 months ago), and we had been fighting about stupid stuff the week earlier. I had a little...

    I would, but i'd be scared to use it.

    I'd feel like the moment I hit that switch ,It would be lights out for me all together

    I would especially like it at night.

    For instance, last night I woke up at 2:50am only to not be able to go to sleep because my mind went into nearly-full functioning mode. Thankfully I have today off.

    24/7. So much going on! My business, home educating the kids, making plans, being Mom, Wife, friend....running a household. Seriously. I need some chill time!

    When lying in bed at night,

    I can't help recalling everything I did that I'm not proud of. What I could've done differently, what I should have said. More often than not I end up crying and only manage to fall asleep around 4 or 5am. It was fine during the holidays, but now that college is back in session...

    I can't stop thinking about you.

    I still miss you. I still cry myself to sleep sometimes. Every time I think about you, I can't seem to control the tears from falling. I wish I didn't do all of these things. I wish I could erase the memories. Just turn it all off. That's the only way I think I'll ever be able...

    I am you. It's amazing how easily we can focus

    on the negative and stay there wallowing in the memory of mistakes we've made, but cannot use those same abilities to focus on all the good and positive things we've accomplished. Living "in the moment" is a concept I cannot wrap my mind around. I'm either moaning about the past...

    At night my mind has a high tide of:

    imagination, inspiration, poetry, unanswerable questions, exciting yet supposedly forbidden thoughts, unlocked time-capsules of embarrassing or joyful memories, inescapably encapturing dreams and either dread or impatience for the morning to arrive. Throughout my lifetime...

    I really let my mind wander to bad things.

    This would be particularly useful at bedtime.

    ..I can deal with it during the day but I need to sleep! I close my eyes and my racing thoughts are relentless. I open my eyes only to find an hour passed by. And then another. And another. Would that qualify as mild insomnia? Buuuuut I suppose I already pay for an off switch...

    wouldn't stay up thinking all night, I know it's my anxiety and depression but can't seem to shut it off. I also of course consider it a sign of intelligence but also too smart for my own good, sometimes being dumb doesn't seem so bad.
