    If I could just turn off my iPod lol.

    Can't stand to not hear all time low and mayday parade. But the problem is I can't sleep when they are playing I just love them too much.

    I know I should be sleeping right now

    but playing on my phone is a lot more fun than nightmares and waking up to more anxiety and lack of messages..

    Sleep

    Let me just say I really need a good rest, I haven't gotten one in a long time. Ever since I gave up drugs I can't really sleep, but usually beer helps me get rest but of course I can't drink everyday. Maybe I'll start taking sleeping pills to help me get a good rest.The End

    The title is pretty accurate,

    and some reasons are because it's not good to sleep at crazy hours and barely get any sleep when I do sometimes. Another is because I've been seeing dark appear under my eyes. So not enough sleep is effecting my psychical a little, ugh. I know. I don't have a sleeping schedule...

    Ever since I was a a small child,

    I've never been able to sleep well. My mind could never relax. I worry about a lot if things. My mind would never slow down. I have a very hard time falling and staying asleep. I sleep so lightly that I am actually in a partial state of consciousness. To this day It is very...

    Can't seem to sleep. Heartburn sure doesn't

    help. But when your mind wanders just enough so that you don't lie still and welcome sleep. Well that doesn't help either lol. Alas sleep evades a restless mind. Chamomile tea anyone? Think I'll have a cup.

    It's true. Yesterday I slept at 1:00 am

    and woke up at about 3:30 am... But I woke up from a horrifying dream that left me in tears. In my dream I was crying and begging. So I didn't sleep back because I'm paranoid my dream would continue so I didn't sleep at all.
