    Sleep Anxiety

    I have such bad sleep anxiety. I'm actually afraid of sleeping now. Just completely afraid of sleeping. :( I stay up till 2am when I give up and pass out listening to reruns of Whose Line is it Anyway. It sucks.

    Friends. Those companions you speak of are only friends during those fun, yet unimportant times. When painful times come, they won’t be your ally.
