    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...

    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.

    Last night, I was tired but could not sleep. That is not a rare experience for me but also it is not a daily thing. My mind wandered. It is rare for my mind to not wander. My thoughts came around to something about spanking, which also is far from a rare occurance for me. It...

    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.

    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.

    for the 2849502818 night in a row I'm going to be early. But I can't. Since something has to set me off during the day. Even if my mind wants rest, the stress has invaded my DNA just enough to make me exhausted but can't sleep. This will last for days after a tumultuous...
