    I honestly can't remember the last time I had a

    really good night's sleep. I sometimes do okay, but for the most part, it's a restless one.

    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...

    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

    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...

    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 love sleeping. When I don't get at least 10 hrs of sleep, I'm cranky! As a matter of fact, just talking about it made me sleepy! Goodnight!(:

    I hate sleeping alone. So I stay up into the wee hours frustrated and restless. I want to sleep but I can't. More than anything I feel so alone. In every way possible
