    So I planned this beforehand.

    Yesterday, right after school, I went to sleep at 4pm and woke up around 8pm. I did this knowing that I wouldn't get any sleep at all if I stayed up working on my English essay...I have very bad anxieties, so last night...I tried everything I could to keep it down by drinking 2...

    I don't get enough sleep.

    I am always up so late. I am so tired when I wake up in the mornings. I just need sleep. Its weird. I guess that's just life sometimes.

    To be honest, i chose not to sleep.

    Theres too many things i do to sleep. To replace sleep, i sit down and think about everything for a good hour or two. It helps me evaluate situations and increase my intellectual thinking. Although i know sleep is important, i enjoy being awake to much to sleep

    It seems that I can't ever fall asleep

    before 2am. I can't turn off my mind and all my thoughts just can't settle and I never figure what I should do

    Eleven years. I've battled with insomnia

    for eleven years. You know this. Last summer, you stayed up all night with me, talking to me. So, why when u finally get a pill that helps me sleep, you get angry when I fall asleep at eight or even seven? I'd rather then. There is no going to bed early when you're constantly...

    Seems Like One Very Long Day

    I have become so used to sleeping in short spurts that its' hard for me to sleep all thru the night. I can't fall asleep unless its completely quiet, therefore I have to sleep with a fan on no matter how cold it is to block out any random noises. Then I have to wait for mom to go...
