    Every day I lie down

    and toss and turn for hours and hours. Then my alarm goes off and i feel like someone smashed my head with a brick. It gets to a certain point that once a month or so I just pass out after work and sleep for a few extra hours but it's still nothing worth while. I wish I could...

    I'll go from never sleeping to sleeping to much,

    either way I'm always tired and have terrible bags under my eyes and I hate it

    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

    Hahaha what's sleep again?

    It has become very rare... How do you sleep again? I must have lost that part of my brain

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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! 😴 😉

    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 slept very well for the first time in a long

    time. The cure? I left my fiancé who likes to drink a lot. Now I am at peace.

    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...

    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.
