    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
