    I used to think that

    but now it depends. If im staying up because im caught in a great conversation then it just feels really amazing. I've even stayed up waiting for someone to come back to me. Yea it makes me feel like a lost dog but I really really like talking to that person :)

    Like Tonight

    I am writing one story after another. If I smoked cigarettes, I would be lighting one with the last one before it went out.

    I have insomnia. I take 10mg of melatonin

    (started with 3mg then 5mg, but my body soon adjusted). Even after a tiring day, I can't sleep. I will yawn and be tired, but once my head hits the pillow, I feel wide awake. I drink tea, I read, play games, take a soak in the tub, even sex doesn't really help. Eventually I...

    Thinking In Bed

    Laying in bed. Doing one thing: thinking. Wanting one thing: sleep. The worst thing I can do in bed is thinking. Thinking about the previous days, about a song I heard just before, my life in total and the thing no one should think about while trying to sleep: -thinking about...

    now 4:38 am, and I am not even remotely sleepy, lol, but it's okay, I have always been this way, some type of nocturnal creature. I am hoping that I can see sleep in the near future, because my thoughts are so random, and strange....

    Unless I'm Home Alone

    Yeah, if I'm sometimes alone at home, it's just fine, I can always get up and play a game, watch anime or something until another attempt to fall asleep. In fact, I find inability to get out from bed when can't fall asleep more annoying than inability to fall asleep. I need at...

    I Hate When I Can't Fall Asleep

    I might not exactly hate not being able to fall asleep as it is now something I have learned to live with in my life, been going on for years, due to an accident and resulting trauma, but I digress. I work on call 24/7 and often find I am trying to sleep when others are awake and...

    Night time is fun time

    Hate It!!!

    Then, I am even more terribly tired the next morning. It really sucks. A lot of night I fall asleep, or not. But if I do I'll wake up occasionally and it really bothers me. :P

    I often neglect sleeping.

    Since I feel I can get more stuff done if I don't sleep as much. But what's a peeve is when I want to treat myself well and stay healthy and try sleeping in a stressful time in my life, and I can't sleep when I'm trying to give some to myself! Hopefully that's a trouble of the...

    I often have too much buzzing around in my mind

    to actually fall asleep. When I do finally fall asleep, it turns out that I didn't get a lot of sleep anyway.

    It's storming out, and storms scare me, so here I am, wide awake, when I should be sleeping because I have to babysit a one year old baby tomorrow.

    Can't Fall Asleep

    The best thing is falling asleep as soon as we hit the sack or close to it.  It is a p.iss off when it is the other way around.  Lacking sleep is major.
