Sleep Deprivation

I haven’t been sleeping well this week and last night I woke up and finally decided to just get up since it felt like my alarm was about to go off any minute anyway.

It was 2:30 a.m.

So I stayed in bed feeling resentful to everything.

I’ve actually been getting up early every morning to exercise since next week is Thanksgiving and my little brother just told me that the family bought $300 worth of booze, and that booze isn’t going to drink itself. So when my alarm went off this morning I got up, even though I felt like shit, because I thought I should punish my body for not sleeping. Because that’s how resentful I am. I punish my own body. Ask me how it’s working out for me.

This might be too far, except I swapped out the “u” for an asterisk.Β  That’s important.

    I’ve been writing all night and going to be around 7 a.m. I decided to fix this and went to bet at 1 a.m., only to find myself awake at 5. There’s just no way for me to sleep!

    Please try to get a few more hours if you can. The hallucinations will start at about day five. I wish I didn’t know that. 😦

    300 dollars worth of booze? I would be the same as you, not able to sleep with the excitement of it! πŸ˜‰

  16. Awesome. I’m an insomniac as well, but I have decided to punish my husband as well. You know, for solidarity. Not that I know what that means at three a.m. It just sounds good as justification.

    Love the illustrations πŸ™‚

    This is exactly what I looked like yesterday after a day of moving. I just hope my insomnia passes before the wedding. I looked in the mirror this morning and almost started crying because I thought I was peaking in ugliness only 5 weeks before my wedding. #sleeptightdontletthebedbugsbite

    I’d recommend sleeping pills. Not herbal ones, though. That shit tastes like horse.

    Oh, I meant sh*t. Sorry.
