Never sleeping - November 3rd 2010, 04:44 AM

I stay up at night.
I dont know why.
I just look at the moon...


I draw to resist killing myself...I'm not good at it either.
Cutting myself lets me not kill myself too.
Im not good with advise but if I'm online I'll try to help you.

Nothing wrong with that.

IT happens as a teenager. Your hormone cycle shifts so that your body naturally wants to stay up late and sleep in later. It actually doesn't start producing Melatonin, the sleep inducing hormone, until about 1030 pm in teenagers. (Don't cite me on that...)This is why on weekends, most teens won't get out of bed before ten am unless they have to :P so staying up LATE isn't an issue.

If you are staying up all night, that could be a problem. Everyone needs sleep every day in order to function properly. If you do not, your mind will begin to shut down and weird things start happening to your preception of reality (in other words, you hallucinated).


Try setting up a wind down routine each day before you go to bed. Use your bed only for sleeping, or else you'll get in the habit of using it for other things like reading, watching tv, surfing the net, ect. And try to count sheep :P > I know it's silly but doing a boring repetious act actually lulls us into sleep. Or you can just focus on your breathing and feel the air go in and out...in and out... it helps.

If it does not clear up within a few days...get some OTC sleeping pills and take only as much as is prescribed.

They just refuse to believe that they can do anything about it."

but nonzero chance of doing the impossible,
what is stopping us from doing the same thing?"

It may be insomnia which can be caused by several things. Are you stressed at all right now? It could also be just because your a teenager. They sell bottles of melatonin pills. I use them and they work really well. Good luck!

Oh and the moon is beautiful by the way <3

Well recently I've started to cut myself and draw more...
A girl I have a crush on also confessed her loving fellings for me...
Maybe thats it...
