    I Don't Mind

    I dont really care if i cant get any sleep at night. I guess its because im 16 so i always have something to do and can just sleep during school. So all i can say is that it must suck for the rest of you.

    I Don't Sleep Very Well At Night

    I don't sleep very well at night this has been a problem for quite a while not and when I do fall asleep I wake up every couple hours or so. It is very frustrating for me not to be able to sleep. I do have seizures and lack of sleep can bring on a seizure for me.

    Is It Any Wonder?

    See how well you sleep after 17 burglaries in one house! That's ACTUAL burglaries, not to mention the dozens of attempted ones, armed robbery and having had 2 cars stolen! I spend most evenings online and usually sleep for 2 hours at most and only when I have to.

    It's almost five in the morning,

    but instead of sleeping, I signed up to this website. But if I tried going to bed, I'd just be laying here awake anyway. I'd take some melatonin, but if I drink water this late I'll be getting up to go to the bathroom every five minutes, and I don't have anything stronger.

    Insomniatic

    It seems even when I do get a normal sleeping schedule, my mind won't let it go. It won't matter how tired I am, I always wake up in the middle of the night (usually multiple times) I think it's because I'm always tense, even in my sleep. I grind my teeth, tighten my back, and...
