    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.

    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.

    Feels like I forgot how to sleep. Then I just try to keep my eyes close and pray for sleep.

    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.

    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...

    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...
