    I Hate Sleeping

    I don't know if I have actual insomnia, but I hate sleeping.  I make sure to get enough sleep to function during the day, but it's just enough.  When I go to bed early I am a very light sleeper and it feels like I'm aware of every minute that passes...

    I Love Ep But It Makes Me Tired

    Since discovering EP I am finding that if I go to bed with a worry in my mind I often wake up maybe just a few hours later with an urge to blog. I get up and do this and because I'm a perfectionist (only just noticed spell check...lol) I then spend ages trying to correct my...

    The Late Shift

    Ya know, some people may brand us as the super-EP-wierdos. XD I am more a nocturnal person though than an insomniac though.

    Ambien Doesn't Work

    I can take three and still not sleep. My dr. says this is a sign of being bi-polar. (?) Taking five-hour energy drinks during the day, which probably contributes to my sleep issue. (But it's only supposed to last for five hours, right?) At any rate, like many of you, this is...

    Too Much Stress

    I hardly sleep - maybe 3-4 hours. Lately, it's been getting worse due to stress. Sometimes I just can't function or focus.  So - I won't be on this site as often anymore, but maybe I'll start doing other things.  I just - I need a break from...

    Last Night...

    It can be like clockwork. Sleep for a few hours, then up at 2 or 3 am.  Go to the Bathroom.  Take a drink.Go lay back down. Hopefully I'm groggy enough where I can go back to sleep in a few minutes.  I try to clear my head of any thoughts, but the oxygen filling and escaping...

    Thaaaaaat's Right

    It is currently 1:31 am and I am still awake and on EP. To be honest I had no idea what time it was until about 10 minutes ago. I thought it was closer to 11 at night. Where did the time go? Damn you EP for keeping me up at all hours of the night!

    Night Owl

    I have never been able to get the day night rhythm going right.  I have always been a night owl and slept well in the day.  It maybe because I suffer from restless leg syndrome.  I have tried everything under the sun to help me sleep but I just cant...

    Wish It Would Go Away

    tonight I am going out and I am still awake now. I am going to be so tired because I won't be able to sleep through the day. My friends are coming to pick me up in the afternoon and I was going to spend this morning cleaning. I would do it now since I have nothing else to do, but...

    This Is What Comes From Cafiene

    I was really hyper tonight, a result of too much cafiene.  Because of this I was up late with my friend ChiChiRocket, who was also up late working on a paper.  And I was distracting him by talking about my ridiculous obsession with X-Men.  I told him I was looking...
