    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! 😴 😉

    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...

    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.

    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...
