    I need sleep so badly. I'm so tired during the day I can barely keep my eyes open. Every free moment I get I stop breast and close my eyes. I can't keep this up forever

    My current girlfriend took my virginity, and we're still together. We started in high school, and she's the only person I've had sex with. We do it quite a bit as well.
