    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.

    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.

    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...

    Almost My Every Cure

    from illness to emotions to depression to all other bad feelings sleep almost cures them all for me. it usually is the lack of sleep that brings it on so sleep is usually what is needed.

    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.

    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.

    Sometimes I wish I could sleep

    and never have to wake up again in the morning. Bedtime is my favorite time of the day, I don't need to worry about anything in my life. I couldn't say that I hate my life I'm just tired so I escape to a little world of my own. I've been thinking to take some drugs to make that...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.
