Insomnia: an inability to sleep; chronic sleeplessness
- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Insomnia has affected me for almost as long as I can remember. At a very young age I would stay up late into the night, lying in bed, staring around my room, afraid of what would happen when I closed my eyes. That sleeplessness has continued throughout my life thus far. I have gotten better at managing it over the last few years, where it has affected me less and less. These images document the nights and early morning where sleep escapes me.
