    Its Just A Lot Less Stressful That Way

    My Couch - My Comfort ...

    I've been separated for a year and a half ... most of this time I have slept on my couch.  I actually have a very comfortable new bed and a lovely bedroom but there is something so sad about sleeping in a big bed all alone.  I get through the day okay for the most part but when...

    When I'm Stressed Out

    For some reason I feel like I ought to cover this fact up, because I have a perfectly fine bedroom and I don't share my bed with anyone at present... When things get rough for me I take to the couch like a child with a pacifier. I lay up half the night listening to talk radio or...

    So my bed is a tad broken nd I'm still expected

    to sleep in it so I just tend to go downstairs nd sleep on the sofa. Plus surprisingly metronomes help me sleep. Dunno why but to me sofas have always been comfier. I could live in a house with no bed if I wanted nd just use my sofa :3

    I sleep on the couch

    because it's preferable than being near my soon-to-be ex. Good thing it's comfortable. Can't wait to not need to sleep on this thing, truth be told.
