Yellow... my name is Jakk and I am 17.

On average I sleep around 1 - 2 hours a night or, about once a week, I pass out for a full 8-10 hours.

I have had insomnia since I was six months old (I love my mother for dealing with me all these years). But for some reason my mother refuses to medicate anyone in the family that isn't the dog (who is on Prozac) so my life is pretty off kilter.

I own a lot of nocturnal pets (many many rats and two guinea pigs) so at least I have something to do while I am supposed to be snoozing,

Last night I didn't get into bed until 6:30 am but for the first time in my life I was glad to not be able to sleep. My guinea pig went into labor and I helped her through the birth and cleaned all three of her beautiful babies. the only down side is that at 6:45 I passed out and just woke up two hours ago...so I missed school.

I need to feel rejuvenated
These past few days I've been struggling to sleep. First, it started when my b/f installed The Sims 2 on my laptop. I was so addicted I didn't sleep for about two days. When I finally turned off the computer to catch up on some sleep, I ended up watching tv. I may have passed out for two hours but then I woke up and went food shopping at one of those 25 hour grocery stores. Since then, I've been awake. Everytime I lay down to sleep, I just end up getting back up and entertaining myself further. My mood is so crappy due to a lot of things, and not sleeping is only making it worse.

Current Mood: depressed

Hi Im new here
I'm a 24 yr old insomniac. My sleeping is pretty erratic. Usually I don't go to bed until about 6 or 7am but I couldn't get to bed until about noon today, then I woke up four hours later. It sucks when I have to work but I haven't worked in months so I get to catch up on sleep whenever I want to. All I do is lay in bed with my computer all day long.

Current Mood: exhausted

quiet down.
I can't ever sleep. I have an overactive mind.

I think about things, and they keep me up. I've started drinking to numb the thoughts flowing through my head.

It started with philosophical questions; stuff i learned in my philosophy classes. I try to imagine things, think things, prove things, disprove things...

It's now reached to questions of my life, my worth, my future, and most of all...girls. I'm not a lonely person. I have a lot of friends, and some very close friends. It's the questions of what could be, what has been, what's going to happen, where everything is going...and why i can't stop thinking of my ex girlfriend, even though she's hurt me, and i have a new girlfriend.

These things run through my mind all the time, and in turn, my mind can't quiet down enough to sleep.

Last night i kept drinking beer until i laid my head back, closed my eyes, and just passed out. Finally, my mind had stopped talking to me. Am i an alcoholic? Probably starting to be.

So There is Dante's Purgatorio
I was up for a month strait.

last night i got a full nights rest.

Women have that affect on me and i afflict too mcuh to be good to myself and for what its worth i dont have anyone to blame but the lack of Attention.

Truelly the lack of attention as i was so wired awake on nothing but a single question; reason being for what went on in the heart of a woman.

i find it hard to say - i believe nothing. Nothing goes on truelly but the icy cold running of the viens when someone who loves you thinks only about money -yet works a job as a hostest at a steak house.

Had life been sweeter than this i might have found eternal bliss , but reality is that lighter green trim with the masonry and self portrait of dead men ,
had there been shadows before , id say they've been reduced to mere imprints ,
just as distance was the aches and pain of insomnia with push-ups and sit-ups.

Falling is a miricle and gravity takes me there. I havent fallen but every once and a while it would be that im always up.

What about fudge and ice cream?

Hello everyone,
My name is Vanessa and I am, obviously an insomniac.
I can never fall asleep before 5 am... unless I'm sick that is (or so worn out from physical activity that I fall asleep at 8pm then wake up at 10pm and can't sleep the whole night .. lovely. This rarely happens though)

I get all panicky and uncomfortable when I can't sleep. And, I've stayed up for about 70 hours straight before (not for insomnia, for events and such), but I STILL panic about what will happen to me if I can't sleep and just give up and stay awake.
When I do sleep, I am a heavy sleeper and can never wake up at a decent hour.

All in all - sleep makes uncomfortable, I am sleep phobic and miserable. And, it has affected my daily functioning because I am always tired. What makes matters worse is that I have chronic fatigue syndrome, and this is seriously killing me. I am constantly fatigued, unable to move half the time and my heart literally hurts from all of this.

Is anyone awake right now?

If we were all in the same time zones I would say we should have an insomnia party lol

An official introduction I suppose...
Greetings and Salutations! My name is Jake, but you can call me whatever you like, just as long as you don't call me late for dinner (ok, bad joke, I know, sorry). Anyways, I guess it is getting close to 1:30 am, and nowhere near being tired. A typical time for me to fall asleep at this point is around 6 am, and it has been going on like this for about the last six months. It originally wasn't as bad in the beginning, would be able to fall asleep aroun 2 or 2:30 and still manage to get a few decent hours of sleep, but it just kept pushing the envelope, and now here I am falling asleep around 6 or 7. There are a few interesting shows on at this point in the night, but I've also gotten sucked into more than one infomercial.

It's 5:14am  5:18am...

and I'm wide awake...

Why is it that insomnia makes you think about all the things you don't want to think about? 

Which, in turn, worsens the insomnia...

Because you just. can't. switch. off.

anoninsomnia is a personal, anonymous journal where I express the thoughts insomnia create.
I'm hoping to be an extremely unique, and successful journal.

It would be much appreciated if you were to take a look at my profile, and "friends only" page, where there is a little more information on what I'm doing, and why.

Thank you.

This Might Interest You

I made an LJ community as a result of my bouts of insomnia/sleeplessness.

It's for those of you who are quite active during the night, whether the reasons range from skeletons in the closet, to defying natural bodily functions for the hell of it, and want to express some thought/impression/emotion/revelation/artwork/humor/irony/etc. during that darkened time of conception.

Please check out the user info and join if that describes you in any way.


Spread the word to your friends if it tickles your fancy.

Merci beaucoup.

Hi you guys. I should be studying for a test right now but at last I'm finally here! Heh. Anyway, been on since about a few hours ago and while online I discovered that I had an old email account...not old really *'01*...but old to me. Anyway, I made an LJ and I made my first online ramble/rant post.

I love staying up all night, it's relaxing, plus I get to eat all teh candy I want.

Well, add me and I'll add you back, plz?

I love the silence of the night...it's so calm...

So, it's 1:15 in the morning this time.
Much like yesterday, sleep hasn't come,
or hinted about a visit.

Here I sit...1:06am in the morning.
Plans tomorrow...but no sleep will
come. It will be a fun day, I'm
sure. I'll be tired all day, sleep
none that night once more...but 2
hours should hold me over I guess.
Hopefully it doesn't stay this way
after school stars. I'll definitely
need my sleep then. Highschool +
College. Hell.

Sleep deprived!!
Hey, just found this little community and I thought I'd join as you guys all seem to have the same problemo as me. Although I wouldn't say I'm an Insomniac, I go through stages of having very bad nights of sleep. At the moment it is getting to sleep, and actually staying asleep, as I tend to be waking up at after a short while of being asleep.
I have been prescribed sleeping pills when my life was all a little crazy but never really took them as I didn't want to become reliant on them. My dad suffers from insomnia, so I don't know whether there is a link there or not.
