    Bedtime ritual: Can I stop thinking about the

    day's events? Is the cool side of the pillow up? Are my arms tucked in nicely and not in odd angles? Are my legs positioned so they do not weigh too much on each other? Do I have enough out from under the covers that I will not overheat? Check for monsters under the bed? All...

    Going on my fourth day without sleep.

    My ADD meds don't work as well when I'm sleep deprived, so I'm more hyperactive than usual. I've had to rewrite this several times already because my fingers shake when I type.

    I Never Sleep Well Anyway

    But since my knee surgery some weeks back, it is harder. Even with the pharmacy I was prescribed. Sigh.

    So Tired

    Sucks living in condos when the dog below howls every night. I need to sleep so bad. Ugh Can I report this matter to strata? Cause when you and your son have to wake up at 5:30 am it's not nice hearing a dog crying every night.

    Im always just sitting up all night trying to

    find new stuff to watch on netflix. I never find anything interesting so I usually just sit up and watch re runs of that 70s show.

    I thought I was managing to stay alive

    And It's Killing Me

    I wish I could just sleep but instead, there's a hug stack of homework there resulting from my incredible procrastination skills. I hate myself.

    Up All Night..

    yeah, so I was pretty much up all last night writing that stupid paper (that I put off until literally the last minute...as usual).  I was pretty much finished by 6 or 7 a.m., and then I had time for a 1-2 hour nap (I wouldn't even call it going to bed), after which I...

    The Playful Child...

    Sleep caught up to me, It over powered me. Wrapped in shadows fall. Encompassed by comfort and darkness. It reminded me as you did, I can't go indefinitely without it. It reminded me that it helps to speed the time. It reminded me to just slow down. It reminded me of good things...

    I cannot sleep tonight.

    I feel guilty, but I don't know how to resolve it. I sometimes feel as if I'll always make someone unhappy, regardless of what I choose to do. I'm going back to my other home later today when I wake up. Yet I feel as if by going there I'll upset my family here. I love them all...

    Sleep? What's that? I don't need sleep anymore.

    I've learned to do without it. I can't remember when I got a good nights sleep. Nowadays if I sleep 3 hours out of 24 it's a lot. Reason being when my mother was alive. The last few years of her life she was very sick and needed 24 hour care. I guess I'm still in that mode...
