    Can'T Sleep ..Again.

    I'm lying awake again.Tick tick my clock is talking to me, counting the seconds. I don't sleep well and never have. As usual I'm watching my dark windows hoping I can have my eyes closed before that sickly glow becomes morning. My eyes ache but they won't stay shut. I have a...

    Yes, I Do!

    I am not my best and I'm overemotional (more so than usual), without proper sleep. I use to be part of a web-group online, many years ago, where I worked for a woman (for free) maintaining her sites. She was a slave driver and I only got 4 hours of sleep. :-o To say the least...

    No Vacancy

    Let Me Sleep!

    New Rule: you can't message me,respond to my experiences, answer my questions or add me to your circle anywhere outside 7:00am-8:00pm. So only do stuff with my profile and things in that time. Otherwise, leave me alone, because I have work and school and I need those 12 hours of...

    Wake Me If You Dare

    I don't know what it is me and sleep. I need to get my 8 hours or God help me, I think I might murder someone. My ex would tip toe around the house and knew how to open doors and take out pots and pans without waking me. At the worst point in my life when I was taking care...

    Don't Make Me Tired... You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Tired... ;)

     Sorry, couldn't resist the bad joke. Really though, I'm a bear when I don't get my sleep. I can't function. The worst is having to get up for an early class and then having to sit stationary throughout the class listening to a lecture. It's so hard to stay awake when you...

    Mmhmm

    I have no problem staying up late, but I need my sleep. But apparently, people who sleep less live longer. Oh well. I'll die sooner but I won't have bags under my eyes!

    Doesn't Everyone?

    All kinds of important things happen while you are sleeping. I think I read somewhere that cell regeneration and hair growth and that kind of stuff goes on while you sleep.  From personal experience I know that if I don't get proper sleep I am not a pleasant person to be around...

    Let Sleeping Dogs Lie....

    Everyone who knows me well (and that's pretty much everyone) knows that you'd better have a damn good reason to wake me up if I'm sleeping. Smoke, fire, blood, tornado. Pretty much the only acceptable excuses for interrupting my "me" time. And sleep is highly critical and under...

    That's what I need in order not to be a complete wreck. However, I have trouble sleeping... not a good combination.

    Super King

    I am the proud owner of a super king size bed.  It means I can have nearly as much space as I want, yet snuggle up to my beloved when I want too. There's nowhere quite like bed, all I need to find out is how to recreate the feeling when you wake immediately when I go.
