    Let's see...jumped out of a plane.

    Manses wrong. Shortly after an idiot ran a red light and hit me head on. 4 discs are gone and I have pain 24/7. I also messed up both shoulders. Both ankles reconstructed. Did I mention I was 20 at the time? Yeah, shut up about pain, you have no idea!

    I'm up thinking right now.

    When your out of options, and you can't take anymore. Just give JESUS one chance. Let him carry your burden. I was sooo stressed out over school. I was sad and upset about it. I prayed to GOD so hard and I trusted him. I went to school the next day and my teacher ended up...

    No Comfortable Position

    I've been in so much pain that I was unable to sleep, all I could do was toss and turn and groan because there was no spot that felt okay.

    Tonight is one of those nights...

    Unfortunately true, a great deal more frequently than I would care to admit.  I have a chronic illness, an ANS disorder, and so I spend much of my time feeling quite sick.  Tonight is one of those nights...  I am lying on bed alone, in too much pain to sleep...

    The pain I have been feeling is from stress,

    anxiety and panic attacks. When my wife said she wanted a separation I lost all control. From running in and out of the bathroom, no sleep, hard to breathe, lightheaded, dizzy and lack of concentration. Sometimes I feel like I am going to have a heart attack. Have lost almost 28...

    Thanks, Fibromyalgia.

    I can't sleep most nights, to be perfectly honest. I stay sore, and it seems to get worse when I lie down in my bed. Thanks to fibromyalgia, every pressure point on my body aches when I lie on a bed. I toss and turn restlessly for hours because no matter how I lie, some part of...

    Missing My Airman

    When my boyfriend left for boot camp, I felt so alone....like I was left with nothing. The lack of communication caused me so much pain. I started wondering if I'd ever see him again or if the military would change him so much that he wouldn't want me in his future anymore. I...

    Somehow, thankfully, I'm able to sleep.

    I had a hip injection to help relieve pain. I won't have the full pain relief for a few days but I'm so tired from the injection process it's making me sleepy... Have a good nite all!!

    When I was really little,

    like 8 or 9, I sprained my leg in gym class pretty bad. I limped all day and was able to elude most of the pain, but when I went to bed, whenever I'd try to roll over or change my sleeping position (which happens a lot, I tend to move around a lot before I go to sleep) it would...

    Emotional and Physical

    Emotional happens all the time.  It doesn't always have to be pain to prevent sleep though, confusion, questioning can do it too.   But on the physical pain factor yep I've been awake all night in pain before with a toothache.  I did everything took asprin...
