    Don't Feel Like Doing Anything

    When I'm sick or just don't feel good...I sleep..or at least try to. I'm not one of those people who can just get up & go to work/school or whatever & ignore how bad I feel. If I feel bad, it's hard for me to get anything done anyway. Besides, if you're sick, you're supposed...

    Like Now

    I feel horrible. I'm having a day where I feel like the most repulsive thing alive, and I deserve nothing good. I think I'm going to go to sleep now.

    Been Sleeping Most Day...

    I been sleeping most the day. When I don't feel good, all I want to do is sleep, and today that is what I basically did all day. I just rather sleep the day away, than be awake and feel miserable all day.

    So Sleepy

    When I am depressed, or stressed, or ill, I get incredibly sleepy. I can fall asleep in the middle of the day and sleep for 3-4 hours solid. Even on the sofa.

    I Can't Imagine Who Wouldn't!

    I mean who would want to be awake when you feel like total crap! In fact I wish that every time I got sick I could just be put into a coma until I was all better.

    That's What I'm Going To Do Now..

    I haven't slept much for weeks.. so much for love. Popped some sleeping pills last night, finally it was a good rest. Popped some xanax again when I woke up. Now I'm gonna hit the sack the again. Maybe for a long long time.

    If you want to know about my mental health, just observe my sleeping patterns. I sleep at the most insane times when I'm not feeling well. See, I know that if I stay awake, it's going to get worse, so the best thing for me to do is sleep it off. Unfortunately, I sleep at around...

    I sleep when I am depressed and I sleep a lot but when I am sick I am not much of a sleeper. I have slept a lot in the last few days but it was drug induced and those kinds of sleep just do nothing for me.

    To Get Better

    I sleep when I don't feel good. I sleep to get better. When I wake up I'd feel diffrerent and renewed ready to face what I left behind. But not when I am emotionally not feeling good. I stay awake to exhaust myself and to finaly doze off to sleep.
