    I Wish I Didnt Wake Up

    3 Hours If I'm Lucky

    All I sleep is MAYBE 3 hours. I am working 3 jobs to keep everything up and running here alone at my house and sometimes I don't even get that. Like when I get off work at 4am and have to be to work at 630. It kills me, but it's what I have to do to survive.

    Because I'm An Idiot

    I've thought about this good and hard and I've decided that's the only valid reason. I'm such an idiot that I stay up late doing nothing even though I know I'm tired and will have plenty of time to do nothing the next day. Many nights, I tell myself,  "Just...

    Never Do....

    I never sleep enough. I am always so damn sleepy, and feel like, if my head could just hit that pillow, I ciould sleep for a few weeks straight. Even if I do get some sleep, it never seems like it is enough. I am so behind on sleep, that I'll never get the feeling of not being...

    Sleep is for the WEAK!

    Sleep is obsolete in such a fast world! Sleep is out of reach for an insomniac.

    5 Hours

    It's most I can sleep, no matter how drunk or tried I am. I can not sleep in. I bounce out of bed at 8:30 am every morning. This has cused problems when vacationing with other people. It bothers me to sleep past 9 for some reason.

    Me Too

    I am not a morning person. I prefer to start in the afternoon and work through the night, into the early hours of the following morning. Even then, I sometimes end up burning the candle at both ends.

    Never Enough...

    Never enough time to take care of my needs and wants. Things are getting missed, overlooked, and forgotten. I'm overwhelmed and I'm my own worst enemy.
