    Now that I'm on vacation,

    I can barely get any sleep. I go to sleep ridiculously late and sleep 13 hrs one day and 5 hrs the next day. It's gotten crazy. I have n e v e r had dark circles under my eyes, and for the first time they've appeared. I've always kind of been an insomniac, having trouble finding...

    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

    I haven't been sleeping well lately.

    But I'm so energize throughout the day I just don't know I can't rest my body. What's wrong with me? Do I have too much stuff in my mind that I can't fall asleep or my body isn't letting me sleep? I'm sleepy and tired but my brain won't stop thinking. I've only been getting 6...

    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..

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I constantly hear this from friends

    and family. My sleep patterns are odd at best, but I have so many things I want to accomplish. The first half of my life was donated to everyone else's needs. Now I am working towards my goals, and I have so much catching up to do.
