    I'm so tired, I was so tired all day

    that I couldn't do any work, and now that I'm in bed, I can't sleep. This is the worst.

    I've had a long day at University,

    The lecture was very long lasted 2hours and a half the seminar itself was draining so much reading to do in a literature degree. Not to mention the long journey I had to make to go back home and being stuck during rush hour. Its 6am I am tired but I can't sleep.

    I Am Tired And Can't Sleep

    I am heading out on a cross country trip tomorrow. I'm going up into the north country. I've lost my mind but I'm ready and excited about it. I just need some sleep right now and can't seem to close my eyes.

    The only time I really go sleep is

    if I'm completely shattered or knocked out by medication. I stay up at night and sometimes the day to just get a decent sleep the next night. It seriously annoys me when my mum just tells me to sleep. I wish it was that easy.

    I can feel myself getting sleepy,

    but my body, my mind won't let me drift off into the sweet bliss of nothingness. I can feel it in my bones the sleepiness is trying to lull me to sleep. I'm ready to let it take me, yet I just can't seem to fall asleep.

    Didn't get much sleep last night

    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...

    And the worse part is there is no one here to

    talk to. I just sit for hours waiting for the sun to come up. My block is so quiet. hardly a car goes by after 11 pm. Every now and then I hear a bus go by. It feels good to know I'm not the only person in the world that is awake.
