    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...

    Sleep Well

    Its a few days now, I have been going to bed early.  It feels good especially for a person who had / has insomnia.  Every night, I go to bed with my husband.  I missed being next to him at night.  I will try to stick to my routine, even if sometimes, it is hard being in bed...

    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.

    I haven't slept well

    for ages. I get tired and go to bed. I speak to my girl. Then I just lie there for ages just thinking. I hate how I over think so much when everything is quiet and lights are out and I'm all alone. Wish I just had an off switch, I wish I could just have a good night's sleep. I'm...

    Pillow sleep mist! OMG I love this stuff!

    For the past few weeks I've been too scared to

    go to sleep. My PTSD has been bringing about some awful dreams and every time I think about going to sleep I have an anxiety attack. I usually only get 2-3 hours of sleep at a time and even then I always wake up in a panic.

    It's so hard for me to sleep

    when my mind is flooded with thoughts. It's so ironic that I spend my whole days so tired and foggy and then at night my mind is wide awake

    Can't Sleep!

    I don't sleep very well. It takes ages for me to get to sleep. Even if I feel exhusted, I'll still be awake at 3, 4, and 5am. My mind just dosn't seem to shut down. When it's time to get up, I feel sick to the stomach. I've been to the doctor, but he won't give me any sleeping...
