    Having less than 1.5 h of sleep last night

    and having my brain fried in school definitely calls for some rest... But I'm not sleepy at all, is this ever curable ._.

    These past few nights,

    this is exactly my situation. I keep having meaningless thoughts that don't seem to stop progressing. I've come to a point where I'm literally on the brink of just lying on a highway full of traffic.

    I literally could not sleep last night.

    I had no energy for the day. It was really taxing on my personality and social interaction.

    I have stayed up for two

    and half days before my brain demanded a shutdown. I can only really sleep when I'm at my last reserves of energy. For the most part, I only usually get 3 or 4 hours of sleep nightly, sometimes none. I don't know how I am able to maintain good grades.

    I Don'T Know Why

    I spend almost the entire night laying in bed awake wondering if I will be able to fall asleep at all. It doesn't matter what time I have to get up in the morning I still lay there all night. I don't know if it's because I can't turn my mind off or if it's just that I'm not tired...
