Sweet Dreams

For as long as I can remember, I have had difficulty sleeping. I would sleep in chunks. It seemed I'd spend the night looking at the clock...1:30...3:52...6:19...until much to my dismay, my alarm clock would be informing me that it was time to get up.

In the last few months though, I've noticed something absolutely AMAZING. I've started sleeping through the night. I can hardly believe it sometimes, but it's true!

There are a couple things that I've started doing differently. For instance, I've started hanging out with different groups of friends, going out on weekends, and I find myself generally in a good mood. It's funny how more people like to be around you when you're happy. For the most part, and more and more, I feel better than I have in a long time. I really think this stems back to just being able to be who I am. Finally.

And since I'm getting more sleep, the good mood continues. Sleep is nice!

oh come on, Amy.. you're not going to blame your improved sleep on 'coming out' are you?
(jk. I really mean that nicely - and funly.. that should be a word, you know).
Good - I'm glad you're getting good sleep - that's awesome. ;-D

Acceptance really does a lot for overall good health. ;)

I don't really consider myself "out," but I think that acknowledging who I am has relieved a lot of pressure and conflict within me, pressure that I was feeling without having an exact reason for why. I think that relief has opened doors for me, and through one of those doors is glorious sleep.

I understand we all have to do it in our own time, but until everyone comes out -- nothing will ever change for us. Then, everyone will know someone and love someone who is gay. I know that in my own life, I have personally changed many many opinions of gay people just by my example.

You'll get there!
