    Sleeping Is Vulnerability

    I can't remember the last time I slept marvelously. Those times are so rare. I've always had the hardest time sleeping, even when I was little. I think the lack of a warm body next to me might be part of the problem. I just don't feel safe when I'm sleeping, I feel entirely...

    I've stayed up all night,

    reading and listening to music, once again. No wonder I'm so ugly. I never get my beauty sleep! 😴 😉

    Haven't Been

    Yup, haven't been sleeping well last couple of weeks. Been waking up 1-3 times every night it's not funny :( I always think when you wake up in the middle, it kinda reset your sleeping time and that means did not get the full rest.

    Ever. Sleeping pills help for 3 days. Then my body defeats them. Just like meds. Why.
