    Yeah

    I get horribly depressed when I dont sleep... more or less of how I'm feeling right now actually. But I cant sleep because I'm depressed so... either way I suppose it leads to me being unhappy and awake. At least when you're unhappy and asleep you can wake up, nightmares end...

    Need My Sleep!!
