I've been trying to fall asleep since 4, it's now 9. I slept about an hour earlier, but other than that I've been up for 24 hours. I've probably slept a total of 30 hours over the past week. I also get frequent nightmare and sometimes have sleep paralysis. I have an icon by my bed of the Holy Sleepers but it has not helped much. I really want to be well rested so that I can attend Holy Week services and go into my last week of school ready to finish strongly but I'm kinda despairing at this point. I'll probably end up falling asleep at 5am and missing Palm Sunday. This is really unimaginably frustrating. I'll see a doctor probably on Monday if I can. Advice and prayers are appreciated.

O Lord, by the prayers of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus, grant unto your servant William a peaceful sleep, the sleep of bodily health and salvation, and life and strength of soul and body!

When school stopped and I started working two physically taxing jobs, my quality of sleep improved.
