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

    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.

    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...

    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...
