I Need More Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 681 People

    I've been really stressed over the past few days

    and I've found that I can't get any more than 4 hours sleep at a time. I feel physically drained, emotionally strained and unhappy. I have so much work to do for school and so much to study but I can't seem to focus or concentrate properly. I'm fed up with feeling miserable. :(

    My mind doesn't stop,

    it never allows me to rest. I will lie here, staring at the ceiling until the early hours of the morning. I can close my eyes yet pictures remain as I create film after film in my head. I can't shut down, close off, stop creating. I just want to rest.

    Sleep Calories

    I guess I keep an eye on how much I sleep like most people keep an eye on their calories. So far this week, I can say I must have got about between 6-8 hours sleep. Just for the week. That's the same as what people have for an entire night. If it carries on like...

    I was up late last night

    and got tipsy then I had to get up at 6:30am so I am trying to get through this day with only a few hours of sleep. I know its my fault but even without the alcohol I would have been up longer.

    I was up really late on the phone with the person I love, so losing sleep wasn't too bad

    Sleep...

    I can 't. I have PTSD and when its triggered my insomnia can be too. I don't even want to sleep during my episodes. I get nightmares, and i panic. I wish i was awake forever. Rest is all i need.

    I never sleep anymore.

    I'm always tired, but I never sleep. I don't have anything better to do with my time, but I just can't sleep. I used to have awful nightmares, but I'd choose them over staying awake hours on end.

    Night Owl

    Growing up, I liked staying up late and would have problems getting up in the morning.  Now that I work, I was able to get to sleep at a reasonable time to get up early in the morning to get to work early.  I did this because I wanted to leave work early.  Now I...

    I am so tired of not getting any sleep.  No matter how much I try it just doesn't happen.  I've been an insomniac since I was a little girl.  I was used to it for most of my life.  Then I was prescribed sleeping pills when I was 32 and that's when I first realized what a...
