    Late-night Philosophizing

    Nothing like the middle of the night to get your head spinning. Not only could we be a figment of someone else's imagination, but that person could be insane, for all we know! I have no religious feeling whatsoever, so that's neither a comfort nor a burden to me. I feel lucky...

    Many many times. And I can tell you,

    up all night thinking does not produce great earth shattering moments of clarity come the morning!!!

    I haven't slept for the past two nights.

    I'm pretty messed up right now. My normal schedule is hectic even when u do get sleep. I work constantly unless I'm on vacation. So you're probably wondering "why don't you just go to bed then..." It's not that easy. Why?... Well... My marriage was great, we were happy, moving...

    Eric.....

    You have been a force in my life for 4+ years now. we have had times of separation, times of happiness as well as times of despair. I guess you could say we have come full circle? But, hunni, I need you now. We are separate but my heart needs you. My soul needs you. I am not well...

    Last Night

    I got really anxious last night and awkwardly, it wasn't all only school related. These thoughts overwhelmed me and I thought: What if I never get better? What if I am confined to live in this town? What if I don't that scholarship? What if I don't get into my college of choice...

    I haven't slept much at all.

    All I can think is how can a person mean so little to another? You know you'd take a bullet for them but they would not even take a nerf dart for you

    Every night I close my eyes

    and recall what I did during the day and I am mostly not proud of what I did. I looked so stupid,immature .reckless. It's feel like that's not the real me. I just can't sleep and keep thinking what should I've done instead.

    Thoughts... I might have slight Maladaptive

    daydreaming... But get it towards the end of the day. Like from 9:30pm-3:00am, I can't stop thinking. I create many stories that go on and on. And I'm literally in the situation.

    I know it's going to be another sleepless night.

    Day #2 or 3. Laying on the couch watching ol Skool Gremlins. Wish my love was here cuddling with me and keeping me warm. I think I'd be able to fall asleep and sleep good for a couple hours. #ijustwanttosleep#

    The Problem..

    The problem with restraining speech is; who gets to make the rules? If it's only okay to say certain things at a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

    This is one such experience

    which can completely leave you exhausted. Been through this several times. I came out with one conclusion that thinking at night doesn't help at all. Coz your mind is actually not thinking but just wandering from one thought to another with too many what if questions which have...

    A Different Way to Describe Insomnia. I Think.

    I have been up all night.  Yes, that's true.  Also, I have been thinking.  Not entirely sure if that amounts to "I have been up all night thinking" in my case, though... One thought loop that went round my head all night was "I'm so tired I can't...

    About Everything and Nothing At the Same Time

    I haven't been going to sleep until around 8 or 9 in the morning. I just can't sleep. I think way entirely too much and it keeps me awake. So I have to do other things to keep my mind busy or I'll drive myself crazy.

    About how you can see things.

    Try to understand things that are not prepared to be understood. Try to organize your emotions keeping them in check to be sure you don't say something stupid and get hurt. Try to figure out how not to mistreat out of fear. Try to manage that life may have meant something a few...
