I'm tired of being tired! I'll lay in bed for hours trying to get sleep to come, but it never does. With each passing day the agony of sleepiness continues to tear me apart. Maybe I have insomnia, or depression perhaps. It's hard to put on a bright, smiling face when you can hardly keep your eyelids open!
Maybe THIS is why my fuse is so short. Sometimes I feel like a cannon, ready to fling someone across the room if they ever dare to cross my path. My whole body feels like it doesn't belong to me; pains I've never felt before. Is it even possible to feel numbness and pain at the same time?
Oh, man! Maybe I'm crazy! Maybe I'm on the brink of it! I'm so unsure of myself on so many levels, and I no longer know how to handle myself!

The author's comments:
It is still not known today what is wrong with me. Some days I sleep fine, other days not so much. Considering I hadn't seen a doctor in a year, it was no wonder I didn't feel right. Soon after writing this, my mother took me to see our Primary Care Physician. He diagnosed me with "stressed-out-teenager-itis" and sent me on my way. I still think there's something wrong with me, but until the PCP says so, I'll have to grow a thick skin and accept my life as-is.

'I’m Nobody! Who are you?
Are you–Nobody–Too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Don’t tell! they’d advertise–you know!

How dreary–to be–Somebody!
How public–like a Frog-
To tell one’s name–the livelong June-
To an admiring Bog!'
-Emily Dickinson
