Four hours. That's good for me.
Last night was rough for me. Without anyone to talk to, it makes it even harder for me to get through the nights. It would be nice to have someone. But I don't. At times I just feel isolated from everyone.
I have trouble falling asleep, so it's the perfect time for me to lie in bed and think. Hard as I try, I can't get my mind to slow down so that I can relax and sleep peacefully. And then, when I do get to sleep, there are my nightmares.
It doesn't even seem like the meds I take help much. Maybe I should speak with my psychiatrist about my meds.
At least I'm in a better frame of mind than I was last night. I know getting wasted isn't going to help me in any way, and I'll just get even more depressed for blowing all of my sober time.
