I Get Emotional When I Don't Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 74 People

    Always

    I have no idea why, but my worries always seem ten times as big when I don't sleep, and the people I love seem ten times as far away from me. Considering this, and the fact that I am a natural worrier and a pessimist, it would be wise if I made it a habit to always sleep...

    Need My Sleep!!

    If I don't get enough "good" sleep, I am a cranky, sensitive mess.   Cry, overreact, get mad--all stuff indicative of PMS.  It ain't pretty!   That's why those occasions that I get insomnia are practically deadly to me.

    I don't like depending on people because people leave all the time. Because at the end of the day, all you have is yourself and that has to be enough.
