    I Think In Time, I'll Grow Through It.

    Environmental/circumstancial issues have caused my insomnia, grief, and depression...  and considering the circumstances, I think what I've been going through is natural...  but it's also something that needs to be worked through.I need to heal.

    The only way I can sleep is with sleeping pills

    and alcohol. ..I know it's not healthy but I have to go to work...I take over the recommended dosage. ..Sometimes six at once. ..That's the only way. .....

    My insomnia is slowly killing me.

    .. I can't go to sleep at all during the night and meds don't help. I feel weak, lost my appetite and motivation to live.
