Haven't slept.
So recently things are getting worse. This weekend pretty much killed me and I haven't slept since Friday. I've been trying to fall asleep, but my mind is running thousands of different things, and I can't manage it. I've taken pills, didn't work, I've went to my therapist, he was unable to do anything.

However, today is a little different. It's become clear what I need to do. And that calms me down. I've stepped from uncertainty and into the light of one truth: Everything has its time, and apparently so do I. Didn't even get a goodbye.






No, not killing myself (upon reading this, it does sound like it, but no.), just stating something I've been feeling for about 48 hours now.

RE: Haven't slept.
Are you going to start a fight club? Seriously, what is it?

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Let me tell you a story:

Boy falls for girl.
Girl falls for boy.
Boy and girl get really close.
Boy messes it all up because he is an idiot.
Boy blames himself and realizes that he needs just walk away.

RE: Haven't slept.
I know it's no consolation, but I'm willing to bet that it won't be the last time for this situation to happen to you.

Not because you're an idiot, we're all idiots. You happen to be a very smart, attractive young man who is obviously not above being an idiot when it comes to matters of the heart, so I'm predicting that this will not be your only foray into this territory.

Dwell on it for a time, then shrug it off and try again. But the key is to learn something from this time. Then learn more from the next. Rinse and repeat as necessary, you're gonna be okay man.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I got you. I tend to pick up valuable lessons as I go along, and it's certainly been a learning experience, this one.

I realized that the best thing I could do for her is to just walk away and let her live her life. Do I still love her? Yeah, and that's the reason I am stepping back. I am not going to cause her more trouble than I already have.

Thanks man.

To be honest, I was playing with fire. I knew I was going to get burned, but I still lit the match anyways.

Kinda was hoping I was going to be wrong. Ah well, such is life.

RE: Haven't slept.
I have trouble sleeping, too, so I just stay up real late until I am ready to fall asleep. Not working so I can do this. When lots of thoughts torment me I just picture all my thoughts in lots of balloons and then I release them and they explode as do all the thoughts and then I feel I am rid of them. I hope this makes some sense.
