It is 2:15 AM and I can not get to sleep. Over the next two days I have some, but not a lot of schoolwork to do. In fact with a good night sleep or even just a 4 or 5 hours I could get it done no problem over the next couple of days. But instead I stay awake, dreading the work I have to do when I know from rational thought and experience that it won't take much time or effort. However I seem to be in a masochistic sort of mood and have subconsciously decided to make life more difficult and more stressful by not going to bed. So instead of getting some sleep or even getting some work done I sit here, realizing that there is something very wrong in my thought process that makes me do these kinds of things to myself. I want to get, better, I want to be happier but, for unknown reasons I still sit here and slowly make my life unbearable, and to avoid getting further into my rant, I want to know how common is this.
