Well, I didn't get much sleep last night only it's because I'm a night owl, why should the end when the clock says it does. I pay for it the next day though!

I woke up earlier myself as usual. Gradual wakening and me wondering WHAT woke me up and it was nothing. I just woke up, I have no idea. Glad gonna do the sleep study in about 3 weeks. They'll hopefully find out whats happening.

I'm feeling somewhat OK, a little bit dazed though.

I was feeling Ok earlier not so good now. I feel like people ignore me sometimes, like I'm not interesting enough to talk to, maybe it's all in my head.

yup, thats our low self-esteem. When you would have high self-esteem, you wouldnt care if people responded or not. If they did, nice, if they didnt, you wouldnt feel it.

Sorry you're not feeling OK now - sounds just like me. I was feeling better last night.

My plan for today- not to resist what I'm feeling, whether its sadness or anger or just grumpiness. Gotta let it out freely.

I understand what you're saying, glad I'm not the only one.
I have to see a client now.
Good plan guest_guest let those feelings flow.

For me, the tidal wave is confusing, cause I am always the only one who knows what to do and I lead everyone to safety. However, the things I am thinking about right now are
1.Having to say goodbye to my best friends as they venture out into the real world now that they are graduating from college.
2. Having to say goodbye to my bf of six years as he heads off to NY for the summer to work at a recording studio(which is pretty cool but I will miss him) and he happens to be my best friend too.
3. So excited to go to venice but sad too cause it is the last time I will spend with my bf and his family before I have to head back to RI for summer school.
4. Graduating from college is not happening as fast as I had hoped.
5. Being in RI for the first time without any friends cause I won't know anyone here this summer and I am putting a lot of pressure on myself to make new friends. The fact that when fall comes, if I hadn't made any friends by then, my fall will be ruined.
So there is a lot to think about right now and that is probably what is keeping me awake.

hi loverbee,

oh ok, yea thats a lot of stuff on your mind. I remember you talking about friends before, how they're gonna move on or something and you'll be left behind. I hope you can find good friends. One thing I know also, is to do something you like doing and you can make friends with common interests there. good luck! I have the same problem. Like this friend gave me her number (she's dating someone so we're just friends who talk rarely) but I know I'm proabbly not going to call her. I think I fear rejection such "sorry can i call you back later?" and then I'm gonna take it personally. Anyway, I have no idea what causes me not to reach out to people or maybe I'm OK as i am. I know self-acceptance is the key.

Soemone with 1 friend who accepts themselves, is happier than soemone with 50 friends who doesnt.

i hope your issues get resolved

I am learning the guitar. My bf has an old guitar he is giving me and I am taking lessons with my school. It should be really fun. Plus privately I am learning the harmonica. Sort of teaching myself.

wow nice, I got a harmonica too! but I just play with it, I mean, just for fun. picking out tunes if I can, with the song i'm listening to. I hope to be taught too so I can be good at this stuff. The harmonica i got is a chromatic one, not real high quality for $60 still. I just went and bought it from ebay cause i thought, i should spend money on myself. I'm glad i got it. The next one will be of higher quality and also 24 holes like this one. I might have to hunt for a real good one when i decide to buy another.

Got some sleep last night finally with the help of unisom. Had a few bad dreams but they didn't effect me too much. I still was able to get back to sleep. So that was good. I am having a great dinner tonight and then we are going out with friends so that should be a lot of fun and maybe where me out a little so that I will sleep even sounder tonight.

Hi. When I had trouble sleeping because of all the anxiety in my life last year, the doctor prescribes trazedone. It made me so sleepy 1/2 before bed and kept me to sleep most of the night with little side effects other than being a little more groggier than usual. Having a little more fun in your life as you are doing right now may help you. I think the tidal wave means a fear of saying goodbye, a fear of everything disappearing...don't go see Posidien. Now that is huge tidal wave. Also if you exercise more, you can get really tired from that causing you to sleep. And I have heard drinking a warm glass of milk helps and maybe a warm bath as well to relax your body. Good luck.

found a new product called natural calm - and OH BOY - does it work.

I got it cuz I am constipated (sorry for TMI) - it is a magnesium supplement.

Well, they say take it before bed to help you sleep - that insomnia is a symptom of magnesium defficiency....

well, I slept without the lunesta last night....and I am pooping...lol.

BIG victory for me.

I got the orange flavor and it tastes sort of like tang orange drink, and is all natural with NO junk in it....I make tea and add it to it, and it's soothing and helped me sleep.

Hoping for another good night of sleep tonight.

hey all, I slept last night pretty well. I did go see posiedon btw and for me it was almost calming to go face my fears like that especially cause I am afraid of drowning. I am having a hard time saying goodbye but I am realizing more and more that we are all the best of friends and that we will always be no matter where we live. Saying more goodbyes tonight which has me a little choked up but fortunately I am not panicking about it.
