anoninsomnia
Hello.

anoninsomnia is a personal, anonymous journal where I express the thoughts insomnia create.
I'm hoping to be an extremely unique, and successful journal.

It would be much appreciated if you were to take a look at my profile, and "friends only" page, where there is a little more information on what I'm doing, and why.

Thank you.

Hello. I just joined, trying to find something to do at night. o-0 It's my first day on LiveJournal, please excuse my... whatever it is.

=/ I haven't slept since early October - and I don't know why. I'm 13... and moderatly healthly and such. (I don't get enough fluids, but who cares. No one does.)

Mainly, I just felt very lonely about the whole thing because no one else I know has insomnia like I do. It's very aggrivating, and it's horrible the next morning and at school. I've kept myself occupied by drawing, but staying up so late all alone really scares me, for I'm very paranoid.

I dunno. I just wanted someone to talk to.

new member: an introduction [27 Nov 2006|09:11pm]

Hello all,

I live in a dark and friendly house.

I have a tap that drips into a sink stacked with unwashed tea cups.

I also have a lumpy pillow.

Sometimes, I like to write.

Dear Moon

Good evening lady.
All the world's aglow
under your cashmere complexion
and Cheshire cat grin.

Do not be so smug,
you are not that beautiful.

Far off muse, for you
gentle poets shed drafts
until their bodies shoots daisies to the stars -
but when diamonds litter the sky,
mortal sighs cannot buy your love.

But for all your radiance, your elegance, your eminence,

You do not know:
the creeks and quivers of floorboards,
the fever of an unseasonable cold,
the tap-dance of a nervous cockroach,
difference between cricket wings and a croak.

Would not understand:
why insomnia increases between novels,
how it arranges my books upon the shelf.
When between sheets I turn like pages,
yawn a little, and leave the light on.

Will never:
massage moans into a lover's throat,
seduce secrets and induce shudders from his spine,
suck on fingertips, bite on collar bones, eat
the apple to his core.



You,
for all your magnificence,
mean nothing to me.







I suppose you don't sleep either,
Libby.

Everyone,

I made an LJ community as a result of my bouts of insomnia/sleeplessness.

It's for those of you who are quite active during the night, whether the reasons range from skeletons in the closet, to defying natural bodily functions for the hell of it, and want to express some thought/impression/emotion/revelation/artwork/humor/irony/etc. during that darkened time of conception.

Please check out the user info and join if that describes you in any way.

Spread the word to your friends if it tickles your fancy.


Merci beaucoup.

Technically, it's not insomnia if you're staying up to talk to your girlfriend, right?

Would you rather suffer from Insomnia or Narcolepsy?

Day/Night Reversal [02 Oct 2005|12:24am]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Many days I find myself on a strict day/night reversal schedule, and I was wondering... perhaps a community could be created (bricks & mortar - not in cyberspace) where everyone was like this? To be honest, being up all night and then being expected to interact with the rest of the world, on their schedule, sucks.

Perhaps one already exists somewhere?

Any thoughts?

Perpetually Awake [11 Sep 2005|12:35am]

[ mood | Up Up Up Up ]

I've been up for three days now. Three consecutive days. Does anyone else here ever feel like there's a clamp around your head and someone is turning it tighter and tighter and your eyes just won't close? I'm so awake I can feel every cell in my body. I can hear everything around me - and the sensations are keeping me awake.

I needs me some mind numbing chemicals.

Hello.
I have just joined your community.
It is 2:30 right now, and I seem to be not tired at all.
I've been spending a lot of time on LiveJournal recently, and I usually stay up until late.
I was also chatting up until a while ago.
So, this was an introduction by me.
Don't expect me to be on often, I won't be.
But I will post occasionally.

Hi you guys. I should be studying for a test right now but at last I'm finally here! Heh. Anyway, been on since about a few hours ago and while online I discovered that I had an old email account...not old really *'01*...but old to me. Anyway, I made an LJ and I made my first online ramble/rant post.

I love staying up all night, it's relaxing, plus I get to eat all teh candy I want.

Well, add me and I'll add you back, plz?

I love the silence of the night...it's so calm...

Hi..I'm new. Umm I've been an insomniac since I was 12. I'm currently 16 & dropped out of school so now I don't have to take naps on horrible wooden desks now that I can just stay home & doze off when ever I want. Anyways I've been up for almost 12 hours excluding the nap I took due to NyQuil. The stuff used to work wonders & give me a good 12 to 13 hours of sleep but now that's what I take when I need to sleep. Anyways after I clear the slate & go to sleep sometime today or tomorrow I'm doing a study of myself to see how long I can stay awake. And since I do this alot anyways should be too bad. Well as I said I'm new here so feel free to add me or comment if your interested to see how that stay-up-as-long-as-I-can-thing goes.

I just joined, came across the sight while trying to figure out what to do about my chronic lack of sleep. Instead of finding a cure, I seem to have stumbled upon a community that may just give me something else to do when I can't sleep.

I've had chronic insomnia since the age of eight, my doctors tell me there is nothing they can do for me, that its a journey of the self. I say, screw them -I'll deal with it my own way.

But I did come across something interesting and I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on it:

>Cut up and onion and put it in a jar. As you go to bed, open the jar, sniff the onion and then close it and place it on your bedstand. Within 15 minutes you'll be asleep.
