I'm afraid to go to sleep

by Aradia

I just came across this site and decided to give it a try. So, I don't know if there's a name for it but I'm afraid to go to sleep. Most people would be afraid to sleep due to nightmares or maybe sleep paralysis, but not me. As soon as I close my eyes my mind starts overreacting and suddenly every little noise is enough to make me have to open my eyes. The worst times of night tend to be between 12:30am - 3:30am, so if I'm awake at that time there's no point even trying to sleep. The only solution I've found so far is to be in bed by 8:00pm, giving me a half an hour to read or check my blog. I can't be the last person to go to sleep, so since me parents go to bed around 10:00pm, I need to be asleep by then. Otherwise I'm bound to end up with a mere 2 hours of sleep.
