    The Worst Feeling

    I hate being wide awake when everyone else is sleeping and dreaming. I have major depression, so its either I can't sleep at all or I'm asleep all day. Since I've started a new medication buspirone, one of the side effects is insomnia. It drives me crazy and when I do get some...
