    Both *Zzz*

    The point is, in weeknights, I tend to stay up a little too late, sometimes due to over thinkingĀ (and I love to read before I go to sleep, or watch tv, or take my laptop with me to bed...bad habits!) and end up not getting enough sleep for the next day, or I stay up late on the...

    Falling Asleep Yet?

    I thought I was gonna fall asleep the other day after 30 hours of being awake, but then after thinking it would happen, I stopped- well, falling asleep. I've read about and watched programs on so many methods on getting to sleep, but when I try them, I either find they prolong...

    These past three to four months, I've slept like I used to sleep when I was 10. Before that, it used to be 4,5 hours every day.

    Pain and fear are a deadly combination. No one wants to say it, but I look like ****. I can't sleep anymore. There's just too much confusion.
