I Hate Trying to Get to Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 201 People

    Takes Me Soooo Long

    My dad can fall asleep easily. As soon as he sets his head onto his pillow, you could hear his snoring. Meanwhile, in  room I could be up for 3 hours before finally falling asleep. You'd find me staring at ceiling for awhile with my hands behind my head. The only time when I...

    Almost Everyday Now!

    I just ******* lie there thinking, thinking about everything! Happy,sad, fun enjoyable things, always suicide without fail, the good sides about it for me the bad sides about it for my family, my mum and sisters... Every ******* night now! I hate it!

    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...
