I have recently cut back majorly on my marijuana use. For as long as I can remember I have...

It did the opposite it...

Why Do I Keep Myself Awake?

For as long as I can remember, I have not been a good sleeper, but my insomnia has gotten much worse in the last decade or so. I try to soothe myself by imagining quiet, calm places, I’ve listened to mindfulness CDs and music. I’ve taken warm baths and showers. Nothing puts me to sleep except sleep medication, and sometimes not even then. What’s interesting is how I spend my time while trying to...

Sometimes I want to say something but something else comes out like I’m no longer in control of what i say or think. I also see myself as away from my body like there is a certain haze about....

Weird Sleeping Problems

Most days, I can’t sleep. I’m not talking about staying up too late on the internet or whatever, I can lay in bed for three hours (that’s how much time I usually give it) and I still cannot sleep. I often go to school without having had any sleep at all (2 of the 5 days at least), and that’s really messing with my grades. I’m diagnosed with Dysthymic Disorder, so it would make...
