    You'd Think I Would. ...

    You'd think I would. I'm so tired you'd think I'd fall right to sleep at night. But somehow, I always end up spending the night awake, staring at what I think is the ceiling and thinking myself into insanity.

    I Average 5 Hours a Night... If I'm Lucky!

    I can't get more than 5 hours a night of shut eye.  I don't suffer from insomnia, because once I fall asleep, I don't wake up at all til morning, but if i try to go to bed early, I just lay there.  I'm in the bad habit (which I'm trying to break myself of) of using my...

    I Can't Believe That I Can Get Along On So Little Sleep

    I'm starting to worry about the effect it will have on my health. I have heard that people who get less than 6 hours sleep are 50% more likely to have a heart attack, and I don't get nearly that much on quite a lot of nights.  I have gone in to work, so exhausted that it feels...

    Sleepy Time

    Cold

    Especially during the winter, I get freezing, we get minus numbers where I am!! It's why I have so many pillows and duvets. I still get cold and on average get around 5 hours sleep.

    Basically that's why I tend to go to bed around 2-3 am :P. Then my mom decides to wake up and rush me to bed. Which usually makes me angry and makes me stay awake even longer just because I don't feel like going to sleep. During school time I always tend to sleep around 6 hours...

    Not nearly enough.   I only manage 2 to 3 hours a night at most and when awake seldom rest. Having two teenagers makes this an almost impossible task.

    Sleep? Whats That?

    I am an insomniac. I do not sleep well at night. Never have. Never will. During the school year, I frequently go to bed at 2 or 2:30 in the morning, only to be back up at 6:30 in the morning. The earliest I go to bed (unless I'm sick or completely exhausted) is midnight, and...

    QUALITY Rest
