I can’t sleep without the help of drugs or alcohol, sometimes both. Their effects never last more than 3 or 4 hours and then I find myself needing more.
I can’t control the dreams, they are relentless and I don’t know what to do.
I suppose I should talk to someone but I am too embarrassed and I know there are no cures only band aids, like the drugs and the alcohol.
I’m powerless over anyone but myself, I know, but my thoughts are in control and I am powerless over them as well.
If I could just sleep.
