The Insomnia. The Insomnia. The Insomnia.

“…Sleeping is for people who know how to sleep. I’m not one of those so I doze. Semi-overdose. Just a little bit for shallow breath and clammy skin…”, said me in a poem a long time ago. Anyway, I can’t sleep. Nothing’s working. I ate a banana.  I pet my cat. I gave him a massage. I have spa music on. Earplugs in so I don’t hear him run all over the house like a maniac on the dance floor.



I’m not in any particular unusual pain other than my typical chronic pain. That’s not what is keeping me awake. I don’t know what is. Maybe it’s because I slept all day. But, then, why am I so tired right now? I should be wide awake. I’m not. I’m drowsy. I can’t think straight. I was trying to type up an already written poem earlier and couldn’t keep my head focused. It took me 2 hours to finish one page in my journal. That says something about my current state of mind.


If this keeps up I’m going to start thinking bad thoughts. That’s always what happens. My PTSD comes and slaps me up and down. I can already feel it. I had one memory pop up. Feeling ill rethinking it now.



You know the other day I had to lengthily explain to a nurse the difference between bipolar  and bipolar type 2 and the different types of bipolar type 1? And she seriously could not grasp what was different about BP2. I was like, “I get manically depressed. RARELY manically happy. I’m just a manic depressant really. Bipolar1 people get manically happy and manically depressed. More ups and downs” She replied, “so you don’t get manic?” (me: *internal eyeroll*) I said, “No, I just don’t get happy.


It’s times like these when I really wish I was beautiful. And that I had a tomorrow worth looking forward to.


I’m in my 20s. You know, summer is coming. And a month after my chemo I should be good for my next tattoo. APRIL. And I want to look really good over the summer. You know, like really good. I don’t care if I’m fat. EVERYONE HAS CELLULITE. Okay. Mine really isn’t that bad. I’ve seen much worse. I only have a little. And not everyone has it. My whole family is naturally thin, fairly tall, flat-assed and flat-chested (opposite of me) and an aunt of mine is absent of all cellulite. She is so blessed. Anyway, I can get that thing liquid cellulite smoother laser machine magic. I wonder how much that costs…


And I’ll dye the roots of my hair light blue. ❤ LIKE A MERMAID.


And I should go into Brooklyn more. And meet new people. Go to poetry slams. Secretly despise everything being said because that’s what usually happens. I clap anyway and cheer because they have the guts to get up there and that’s more than I can say for myself.


Though these are just dreams. Bursts of little thoughts. I’ll follow through on maybe one of them…. It’s times like these when I really wish I was beautiful. And that I had a tomorrow worth looking forward to.

  1. It’s heartening to see you being with yourself, speaking out to yourself your mind and heart. A little bit of pep talk too, and building cheer…, and above all, sharing all that with your readers. I love that.

  2. These dreams can be achieved. Dye your hair blue! What tattoo do you want. Yea, you are going to find ignorance everywhere you go but at least you are not ignorant and that is what counts. I don’t know what you can do about the sleep. I’ve heard that turkey has something in it that can make you sleepy – it may be a myth. I take sleeping meds. Have done for years. 🙂 hope u can get some proper sleep soon.


    1. Right now it’s teal. I just don’t want to go to the salon. It’s tiresome and I’m tired all the time 😛

      Oh I have a list of about 10. I need to finish 1 I already have. I have 2 right now. After my I finish the one I have (a Walking Dead one), I’m going to probably add to my Firefly (scifi tv show) one OR get the flag of the original 13 colonies with the words Give Me Liberty, Or Give Me Death. All black and white. The Firefly has a bit of color in it.


  3. One more issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time most significant forms of recreation for people of any age. Kids engage in video games, and also adults do, too. Your XBox 360 is among the favorite games systems for many who love to have a lot of activities available to them, in addition to who like to play live with other people all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.


  4. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few to force the message house a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  5. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  7. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch because I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!
