The state of sleep loss. No matter how much you desire dreamland, it refuses you entry. You stand at the gates, whining, crying, but stuck in the world of buzzing activity.
Person A: "I had a lovely night sleep. How 'bout you?"

Person B: "I have insomnia. Go fuck yourself."

One of THE best Melodic Death Metal...no...music groups ever. Formed in Finland, they are known for their passionate sound and excellent technical skill. Unfortunately, like so many other good bands you would be lucky to run into a person who has heard of them.
My mom forced me to go to a Jonas Brother's concert. Luckily I played Insomnium on my iPod afterwards, thus saving me from total ear rape.

The worst thing...ever.
I've had it my whole life.
It's where you try to sleep but it just won't happen.
You try counting backward you try EVERYTYING..
You just don't sleep.
Hence, me sitting here at 2:00 am when I have to wake up in 4 hours.

Elise:Hey Lauren, how was your night?

Definition of insomnia....me!
Inability to sleep, either difficulty getting to sleep, waking lots during the night or waking up too early in the morning.
Insomnia comes in three different forms: Transient insomnia - lasting for a few nights
Short-term insomnia - two to four weeks of poor sleep
Chronic Insomnia - poor sleep that happens most nights and lasts for a month or longer.
(hence me being here at 05:08 writing definitions)
Can cause physical side-affects and is often caused by some underlying mental cause ...most commonly; depression.

Insomnia Trivia: David Baddiel has terrible insomnia
David Baddiel scetch: If you tell someone that you have insomnia, why do they always go..'oh really cos im always asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow'?
Its not like if someone told you they were blind you'd go... 'oh really cos i can see perfectly...blimey is that the Pyrenees?'
