    Not Nearly Enough. ...

    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.

    Sleepy Time

    Never… not with the baby waking up crying and my son wanting milk. Then there are nights like last night when the teen came in and practically sat on me to play on line. And she wonders why she can’t wake up in the morning either. I'm just so tired lately and...

    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...

    Not Much Rest At All....

    I don't get much rest at all. Its not often that I sleep  through the whole night, or even sleep more than four hours without waking up in the middle of the night. I am always so restless, and so moody, because I am not getting enough sleep. Even with my sleeping pills...

    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.

    Expectations Are Excessive

    Man, everybody expects me to be oh so happy and joyful and cheerful the whole time, and no one can understand if I'm just 'tired'... I sleep 9-10 hours a night so, they think, I must be ok. And especially my dad, who is ok with only a few hours a night, does not get it that I...

    QUALITY Rest

    I do get enough rest.. but it sure isn't of best quality. It has to do with my whole mood and wellness. One day I was really very happy some weeks ago and the sleep was the best I had since years, although it was shorter than normally. And as I woke up I felt happy and ready...

    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...

    I'm Addicted to My Favorite Tv Shows and My Laptop :p

    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...

    Especially When Sick

    I missed work this Monday thanks to a bad ear and sinus problems. I'm NOT a good sick person. I prefer to lay in my dark bedroom, and be left alone. Don't talk to me, don't check up on me, don't ask me how I feel!! If I don't submerge by the next day, if a rotting stink is...

    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.
