Up all night. - July 27th 2012, 04:24 AM

I've always been more of a night person. Sleep all day, stay up all night. That's what i prefer. Until lately when night has become my worst enemy. I can't sleep at night anymore. I end up laying in bed for hours. Thinking, worrying, and eventually crying. During the day, It's absolutely fine. I keep busy and i don't think about things much. The worrying starts at night. I end up laying in bed thinking about every single possible thing that could go wrong. Even though i know it's ridiculous. I'm insecure about everything lately. It's getting to the point where i can't trust anyone; including myself. I try keeping busy during the night, and sleeping during the day. I dread the night. It's the same routine every night. Laying in bed listening to sad songs, crying. Most of the time i don't even know why i end up crying, i just do. I end up worrying about everything until i have to get up before i have a panic attack. It's the worst feeling. I can start to tell my insecurities are starting to annoy my friends. But i don't know how to stop it. I keep telling myself i'll get over this. But this is the third month this has been happening. It's starting to take over my dreams. I can't sleep at night. Then i wake up early in the morning from a nightmare. I'm exhausted, but there is no way i can go to sleep. I don't know what to do anymore.

Hey there;
I'm sorry to see that your having a rough time, I go through the same thing you do.
What helps me is reading, writing, listening to music (for you not sad songs) and finding someone to talk to. Distracting yourself with other things, like you do in the day, can help you eventually fall asleep.
Have you tried talking to your doctor? He/she could put you on sleeping pills and/or recommend you to therapy. Talking to someone about how you think and what your thinking during the night can help you release the stress. Professionals can teach you ways to calm down and help you sleep.
Have you tried taking baths/showers before you go to sleep? Eating comfort food? There are many different things to try that can help you relax before you go to sleep, you just need to find the one that works for you.
I hope this helped, if you need anything or have any questions feel free to VM or PM me. Remember your not alone, I have the same exact problem.
Your not alone,

When I'm sad I think, "I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt!"

You can't change fate, but you can change your attitude towards it.
