    I have been up all night working on my computer. I was about to go to sleep and was in bed, but I kept thinking about money, my future, this that and the other so I got back on the computer and here it is...day break. And for some reason I don't even feel sleepy. I wish I had this energy on the days I have early flights icon_rolleyes.gif

    What the hell is wrong with me? Am I going crazy!

    Is it possible you are scared?

    What are you feeling? Do you know?
    Why do you think you are going crazy?

    Also, has this happened before or for extended periods? If so, perhaps you should talk to a counselor or your doctor.

    I hear was up till 2:00am even though I was tired. When you are worried about something it tends to keep your mind from relaxing. Hope you get to catch up on your sleep.

    Hey, I'm back and 'somewhat' well rested. I ended up falling asleep to the lure of the sunlight shining faintly through the curtains, my unit faces east LOL.

    This isn't the first time I've stayed up that early, but generally it'd only happen if I was occupied: going out with friends, driving, etc. It was very odd to have stayed up that late being home alone.

    I think I'm just bored with my life! Work has been slow and I work from home. I made a lot of money last month but I had to do some major body work on my car, and then after that I had to put away for rent.

    Prior to that, I was doing house and clothes shopping during the evenings which would make me tired...I mean even going to the gym doesn't really tire me out that much anymore. But I really haven't been making that much money right now to do the shopping that I really want to get back to doing.

    And yes, the sloppy seconds is occupying my mind a lot. It just feels like I'm not ever being taken seriously and because of my looks that guys just see me as the fun guy and never want to go beyond that. And then on top of that I'm not even that much attracted to them to begin with so it's fair game the way I see it.

    So basically I feel lonely, bored, isolated...the other night I had something CRAZY run thru my head...that being move back to Dallas and be closer to my family. But I know the moment I do that I'll regret it...I never like to go backwards in life. I'll move to a city I never been to than to go back to a place I left.

    Worst thing to worry about when not being able to sleep, is worrying about not being able to sleep. If you can't sleep you can't sleep so do something else. Of course if you have to go to work in the morning that's unpleasant, but if not.. then so what.

    I've had nights I couldn't sleep and had to go to work in the morning.. uggggh but shit happens. I'm still alive and fabulous LOL

    This only ever happened to me in periods of my life when I wasn't really working toward something. I had to have a big goal to work on, feel like I was moving forward. Otherwise distractions weren't much for filling the void.

    Maybe you need a new big goal or project. There's a lot of good to be done in the world and we can always do a bit more for our future.

    Are you under more stress than normal?

    It sounds like you are in the beginnings of depression. Sometimes people have so much going on in their lives that they don't realize they are depressed until they have some downtime.

    Ooops I did it again...I played with my sleep. Here it is 20 til 6 and I'm wide awake LOL.

    I think you're right. I ended up having to take the whole semester off from college and that's another thing bothering me because now I'm having a hard time trying to get back in school because the college I was with screwed up with my financial aid twice, and it took too long to fix it so I ended up not being able to attend this year. Then I ended up moving out of state thinking I could go to school here when nope, financial aid barely covers it. And now looks like I have to wait til August because the summer isn't offering the courses I need icon_neutral.gif

    But this month I'm going to be traveling for work for a couple weeks...I have to fight to stay awake!
