Good thing I don't have training later. It will start next week or else I will feel like a zombie. But there are just some nights where you just can't sleep. They say someone is thinking of you. LOL. That would be a nice thought but sometimes, you find yourself thinking about your life before you close your eyes. You think about your plans. How your day will go. How we handle our life. The ordinary and the not ordinary thing. Then there's also our problems ie family issues, bills to pay, reaching the goal in payout. =) It's bittersweet to evaluate your life sometimes. And there are just some nights where you just can't sleep at all and you don't know why. Gloomy, Wednesday here. I hope it won't rain.

And here i thought it was the boogy man that haunted you or something, sweetie. I get that a lot, but it's better to have that time to think about what you will and want to do as doing it during the day. Night time is the only time that you can really sort out your life, just a shame we loose sleep over it. TATA.

You will never be a boogey man, saphy. You are the most gorgeous Jedi Ninja Master I have ever know. And thank you for your wonderful response. I am jotting your quote. Might use them someday when I need a good refresher.

you cant sleep and someone is thinking of you? oh common total i dont think that is true. though i dont like to discourage you but cant sleep meant that your body is to tense to sleep. maybe you are inlove that can be one of the reasons. when we have so many things in our minds then it is hard to sleep. for maybe our bidy is tired but our minds is still working. reading and watching tv helps me get to sleep. i like a gloomy day it feels cool but i dont like to much rain as well. the level of the river at marikina is high so cool is welcome but rain is not har har har.

you cant sleep and someone is thinking of you? oh common total i dont think that is true. --- I know it's never true. We do usually say it sometimes to a friend who tells us that she can't sleep and it was my turn last night to be told when I can't sleep. Ah, you live near the Marikina River. That's scary. What if the the level of the river gets high...

no, we dont live near the marikina river but after ondoy i always check the level of water specially when it rains hard. yesterday when i was traveling going home the taxi past at the bridge and i can see the river from up there. the water level is high so a little rain can cause another flood . so when it rains at night people here at marikina are wide awake.

Yes, and the reason why I can't sleep is because I am nervous, or massively worried, meaning I am so worried that nothing will calm me down, I just have to let the worry get through my system. I will try to exercise to calm myself down.

Drinking tea sometimes helps me calm myself but it doesn't put me to sleep. LOL

I do, but sometimes I am still awake. It really depends on the situation.

True. Even milk, too. They said warm milk can help you put to sleep but it's not working...

Thank God these nights have become so rare! I think what made me stay up all night were stressors like school work and requirements. I'm glad those are over with. Some nights are different though because it makes me think of the wrong decisions I made. It makes me have a fight with myself. =D

I can't wait for my these kind of nights to be rare. Where I can sleep soundly and no more worries. Someday

Yes, there are many nights that I could just not sleep. Sometimes it is because of too much happiness. At other times, it is because of intense sorrow.Whatever it is, do try to calm down and read a book or watch TV. Once you feel drowsy, get into bed!

I am thankful that I have some books in store if some nights come to tease me and I an sleep. I do read them If I can't help it, watch a feel good movie.

Yeah me too.. there are just some nights where you just can't sleep at all even if you are tired from work. That just simply means that we have a lot of burdens ha ha ha. Thinking of the monthly bills, what will happen today, tomorrow, forever, who will grow old with you.. When I can't sleep, instead of thinking all these responsiblities I rather think of a sweet dream :) for my lover :) HAppy Wednesday!

True. There are also times where I use your method. Like daydream until I get myself to sleep.

Hello totally pretty, Probably the main reason why you can't sleep is because you were thinking too much about things. try to relax you're mind, or play a game or something or watch tv that could help you fall asleep. if you have a job, i think you should focus on your job, we mylotters won't go anywhere. One of the reasons why i couldn't sleep early is because of mylot, listening music, watching movies. you think too much, then you will have trouble sleeping for sure. Relax you're mind.

Yes, absolutely. I do have some nights like that. There are just nights when I can't fall asleep for the life of me, and I have absolutely no clue why. All I know is there are nights when sleep doesn't come easy for no apparent reason.

Same here. I sometimes go to bed late, very late. What I did is take enough sleep for a day, so that the following day I could get another complete sleep!

Right. Every time i think about my plans, dreams, bills and some problems i couldn't sleep at all. It's like my mind is full of thoughts and worries that cause my eyes to stay awake. I always feel that way these days. And I want to stop thinking about it once. It bothers me most. I can't just leave all my worries behind.
• Philippines

True. It really gets and settles in our thoughts most especially if you're the only one working and no one is helping you. Don't worry, tess. We are not alone. But I know we can get by in this.

Yes, you are right my friend. As for me, I cannot find the word "sleep" sometimes because I worry for the next day, for the future. Especially with my situation now, where I am finding ways to have a financial stability. I do not want to think of the coming days and believe that God will provide, yet I cannot control myself not to think when you know that bills are coming..Whew! I cannot sleep when my bf and I had an argument.
• Philippines
13 Oct 10
High five on that my friend. Except on the part where you and your bf argue. I dont have a bf now but we share the same worry. LOL. I know we can do this. Let's believe in our selves, more hard work and more faith in God.

I love your optimism, anna. I wish I have more of that. But I am practising. Life is really short and really good to waste it on negative thoughts. =)

When I am under a great of stress, I find that no matter how tired I am, I just can't seem to fall asleep. Although I may dose off a bit I awake periodically as the troubles keep waking me then the next day I too feel like a zombie.

You're a light sleeper,HWG. I guess your mind is always alert. I really hate feeling like a zombie because I feel like I am always on a jetlag. LOL

Oh yes. I can also relate. If something is bothering you and the issue is unsolved, forget about sleep. I quietly go to my computer and search around until I am tired. Sometimes I just surf TE's (traffic exchanges) as I am an online marketer.

Me, too. Thanks to the internet sometimes. It helps and not helps in a way because if you get to be too entertained, you can never sleep anymore.
