For some reason people glorify the (in)ability to stay awake for extended periods of time. "SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK!" they shout, typing in all-caps..
I fail to see why this is so.
I mean sure, I myself tend to work on my artworks during the midnight hours.. It's quiet, no one bothers me. But the thing is I suffer from insomnia.
No, I'm not exaggerating.
I can't sleep even if I wanted to.
This lack of sleep takes a toll on not only your physical, but also your mental well being.
In my case, depression.
My friends don't notice because I happen to be good at keeping up appearances. I smile, post the occassional cool thing on facebook or some shit, and draw.
But, I am currently residing in a very cold, dark void of hopelessness.
I know it sounds really fucking cliché.
So what's the point of all of this?
Why did I decide to talk to you, a stranger about all of this?
I have no idea.
