    What would it be like to fall asleep

    and sleep a solid 7 to 8 hrs every night? Omg. I can only imagine. Looks like yet another morning I'll be awake to watch the sun come up. Although I admit I love the peaceful quiet of the early morning... I'd rather enjoy SLEEP.

    I feel absolutely exhausted,

    but as soon as I get in bed and close my eyes to sleep, it's like I am wide awake again.

    I literally will be awake all night long. It's so frustrating. I'm amazed that I don't have huge bags under my eyes. Yay for good genes lol.

    I've had insomnia since childhood.

    When I arrived at college I began recreationally smoking weed and soon found I could use it to get me to go to sleep and sleep well. My new roommate just moved in however and she does not permit smoking in the apartment. I haven't slept except for a couple hours during the day...

    I can feel it coming back to me.

    I was a lot better already but past few weeks it's been ridiculously difficult to fall asleep at nights. The fact that my partner is very annoyed, even angry because of this doesn't make it any easier.

    Do you ever just lay on the bed in the darkness,

    listening your partner's breath/snoring, hoping they'd turn around and spoon you? It's 5am again and I really hope I could catch some Zzzz's before the alarm goes off..
