I cannot sleep
can barely eat
mind being sucked dry by a leech
this cloud of dread follows me
never ceasing; I’m never free
all I want is some fucking sleep
Life may be tough
My path may be twisted
But I don’t want out
I want to have existed
Yet my own bed is terrifying
Listening to my mind is horrifying
Sleep is a battle, a disgusting pest
I hope practice makes perfect
So I can finally get some rest.

Is this something you wrote – or something you’re a fan of from someone else? Do you really have problems sleeping?

Yeah I just wrote it now, I’ve been awake for 2 and half days. It gets old. I usually just stay up till I can’t keep my eyes open so when I hit the bed I go straight to sleep and don’t have to listen to my brain. I literally avoid going to bed
What’s keeping you from sleeping?
Epilepsy I guess. I can’t turn off my brain, so much is going on all the time that it is literally a phobia to go to bed. I hate lying down and being stuck with nothing but my head. Music or a cartoon in the background helps but I still end up getting lost in my head and basically just thinking too much to be able to sleep
How much soda or coffee (or other caffeinated drink) do you drink a day?
I don’t drink either, they give me heart palpitations
How often do you exercise/work out?
I walk the dog every day, practice drums like a demon most days. I’ve tried everything man, the epilepsy just makes my brain wizz around like a fucking thunderstorm. On one hand I get more stuff done if I’m not sleeping, but I obviously can’t really get work if I can’t predict when I’ll be awake and when I’ll be tired.
If you lay in bed and read it should help focus your thoughts, so they aren’t running out of control – and eventually tire your eyes so you become sleepy.
Walk 4-5 miles a day; do some writing on your book for 6-8 hours a day; read in bed…
This should help.
I will write for 12 hours a day on my screenplays when I am working on one. I have a hard time getting to sleep, as well; writing and working out helps wear me out.

writing and exercising is all I do cos I don’t work at the moment… I try reading before going to bed, it tires my eyes out but not my mind. I’m kinda used to it, though it is a lot better than it used to be
