    I Never Sleep Well Anyway

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

    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...

    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...

    Eternal Exhaustion

    Since the age of 22 i have only grossed about 4-6 hours of sleep a night. It started as the result of being terrorized by an abusive husband and progressed into all the medical and financial issues of my children and I. I try but without a perscription I cannot sleep at night. i...

    No One Respects That I Need To Sleep

    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.

    It's Late

    I should be in bed already. It's not THAT late yet but it's getting there, 12.45am here and my eyes are getting heavy. I don't want to go to bed yet though even though I know I should. Bed time is no fun when your going to bed alone *sigh*

    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...

    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.
