    I Dread It Every Day

    Sleeping has always been a huge struggle for me. It boggles my mind as to how anyone can just fall asleep so easily, simply by resting their head on the pillow. Usually I'm laying in bed anywhere from an hour to five hours. Sometimes I won't be able to fall asleep at all. The...
