I Have Trouble Sleeping When Stressed

    I have trouble sleeping at night because that's when I'm the most introspective. My brain is so active at night unfortunately.

    I seriously have trouble sleeping. I could be so so tired and not be able to sleep. My eyes say yes, but my mind says no.

    Every time I close my eyes at night, I feel like someone's watching me and it forces me to open my eyes again. I hate it so much. I'm tired, but I can't sleep.
