I Should Get More Sleep

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,200 People

    I'm up right now, trying to force myself to

    stay awake even though I have work tomorrow and a **** ton of things to do!! The reason I'm trying to keep myself up right now is absolutely mad....I think sometimes I just let my mind get the better of me. And when that happens I end up like this, annoyed and awake at 1:19am...

    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..

    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...

    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
