I Don't Sleep Very Well

•~Some nights, not at all~ • 478 People

    After the thousand years it takes me to

    actually fall asleep, I often wake up around 2-4 a.m. wide awake. ADespite my restlessness I try to go back to sleep. But even that that takes forever.

    I try to fall asleep

    but I can't. It's probably because YouTube is so addictive. I try not to laugh at those try not to laugh videos, but they always get me. Poor me.

    Well, not anymore, that is.

    I'm too happy to sleep, and mixing happiness with lots of sugar infested coffee is NOT a good mix! So here I sit, watching glorious episodes of The Simpsons. But being up at such a peculiar hour does give me time to think quietly and reflect on life. Oh, and laugh as silly Homer...

    I have constant bad dreams.

    Most of them involve being hurt by my husband. He is either cheating on me, laughing at me until I cry, or him not protecting me. I know this most likely stems from me being insecure in my relationship with him. When I try to talk to him about it, he says "oh well. That is...

    Queen Of Sleep Problems!

    I have insomnia, sleep maintenance insomnia, and sleep apnea. Sometimes I have really bad nightmares too. However, I am thankful for what sleep I get!

    I Get Cranky

    Not very often, but sometimes when it has been days and days of not sleeping well, it will all catch up to me and I start to feel cranky. That's when I know I need to get some rest.

    It's almost 8 in the morning

    and I haven't slept at all. I'm honestly so sleep deprived that I can feel the purple bags under my eyes.

    The past 2 weeks coming up 3 weeks have been

    the worst for insomnia. I'm so sleep deprived it's driving me crazy. Poorly is an understatement. Think I'm losing weight too. Someone knock me out. I. Want. To. Sleep.

    Oh Well

    I don't really sleep good, I'm not sure why, I just like staying up late. The nighttime to me is more relaxing than daytime, maybe that's why I don't sleep. Even when I'm tired, I still can't sleep. I try to force myself asleep at night when I have school but I still end up...

    There use to be a time

    when I fell asleep with no problem around the same time every night. Now it takes me hours just to fall asleep, even when my eyes get heavy, I still can't fall asleep.

    I Can't Seem To Fall Asleep Or Stay Asleep

    I've been told I had insomnia even as a baby. My mom would put me to bed and two hours later she would check on me, and I'd be wide eyed, staring at the walls. It usually takes me awhile to fall asleep and when I do I wake up often. I would prefer to sleep from about 3AM until...

    I haven't had a good night sleep in months.

    . . I really need to get a sleep study and see what is wrong with me. I just keep waking up more tired than I am when I go to bed,

    Most nights I'm in my room by 11:00 m.

    Lights are off maybe half an hour later and then I wait. My alarm goes off at five every morning and before then I can enjoy somewhere between 3-4 short naps with time between them where I just listen to wind and my dog rolling over downstairs.
