    My regrets and thoughts of all the things I have done wrong in life. And that now it is time to pay up for those wrongs. And paying up is going to suck.

    1. Drink some warm milk or hot chocolate.

    2. Warm bath with lavender.

    3. Make sure the room is cosy and everything clean.

    4. Distraction-which is the best of them all, read while going to sleep or watch TV and you'll think less about anxiety!

    I'm sorry hun. Sometimes we have to make peace with the past to move forward however hard that may be. You will always have support, you're not alone in this.

    Fear of whether tommorow will be worse than now.

    Anxiety, guilt and negative thoughts in general. Or perhaps the fact that I'm a professional insomniac if such a thing ever existed.

    Anxiety, regret, guilt, negative thoughts about myself.

    When I have my kids with me I can sleep. So the other nights of the week I cannot sleep. When I'm alone the fear, regret, and sorrow take over my nights. Someone told me that smoking some weed will help you sleep. I got to say it helps me.

    Anxiety and panic attacks :( ... it really sucks.

    My head is pounding. I can't seem to get the right body temp for sleeping. I'm either too hot and feel sick, or too cold and shivering.

    Also, thoughts and song lyrics keep my awake. You haunt me, Sir Sly. Things will never be the same again. Anxiety rises. I try to find things to take my mind off it, but I'm at the point of giving up. I might just lay here.

    Regrets. Existential crises. Mistakes. Worrying over tomorrow. Worrying over yesterday, too.

    I experience existential crisis's a lot.

    Anxiety keeps me awake, mostly.

    What am I doing with my life? What if every day is like this? Why did/didn't I eat? What if I grow to be old and alone? What if I don't? Oh my god, I am going to die.

    The works.

    Sometimes depression keeps me up.

    Also, occasionally, my rabbit chewing on his cage.

    Fear of living and fear of dying, like that even makes sense.

    Worry about today and yesterday. Wonder how I'll make it through another day. Thinking about what I'm not doing with my life.

    Not knowing the combo to open the door at work in the morning. Or if I'm scheduled.

    I think I have finally found a working combo. My allergies suck to begin with so I take diphenhydramine, I have also found video on YouTube where the screen is almost completely black, constant rain, and the occasional lightning and thunder. It is an actual video, it may loop, not sure. But I have found 2 by the same people. One is 4 hours, the other is 10. I haven't slept this well since I was on all the prescription drugs prior to my surgery. I think it even helps my dog, he doesn't move at all. :highly_amused:
