    Back In the Day On Irc

    I used to stay up all night chatting on IRC often. It was the first place I ever found real peer support. A few times I just didn't want to go to be, or someone would be late getting on and I'd want to stay up to talk to them. I wasn't missing anything outside of my online world...

    I Fall Asleep

    This is any every day event for me, in fact it happens several times every day. LOL I have a torn bicep and rotator cuff that is very painful so I sleep in very short blocks, most of the time I only sleep for an hour or less. This problem is so bad that I actually dread nights...

    Not Tonight

    Well it's now 4 am and I haven't slept a wink yet and I hate nights like this. It wouldn't be so bad but the rest of the family will be up in about 4 hours and at that time there is no sleeping in this small house. Not really sure what my problem is tonight, I don't really have...

    I Was So Miserable................

    because I was hurting, and I couldn't concentrate on anything else. Sometimes even the pain medicines don't work, ans all you cab do is to try writing a story, or surfing the internet.At least that seems to ease my emotional stress. I surf the site until I can feel tired enough...

    At School!!!!

    Once!! This happened once!! But, I still hear jokes and laughs about it, why??? Because it was at school. The teacher was so boring and wouldn't shut up, I felt sleepy, then I went!!

    Sleepy Me.

    Nearly two years ago soon, I was talking to my friend across 'the pond' on IM, like I did everynight and I always joked about being sleepy due to the time difference. One week I was feeling particular unwell and as I was waiting for a response from my friend I fell asleep. I was...

    Not Me...

    I don't sleep easy... I'm way too concious of the amount of electricity I would waste, too... I usually turn all the lights off, the tv, and everything else electric when I'm ready to fall asleep, except my A/C

    Lots

    My computer here at home and at work. I've been so sleepy lately and worn down that falling asleep isn't uncommon. It's hard when someone walks by your office and snaps their fingers to help open your eyes. I so need a vacation!

    I Used to Have a Recliner As A...

    I used to have a recliner as a computer chair. I was doomed.  So many times I'd wake up with a whole bunch of messages from people either whining that I am ignoring them or wondering where the heck I went.

    I Did This...

    Just last night I was falling asleep at my desk so I shut everything down and went to bed.  I was out within a minute.  I was so freaking tired from only getting about 4 hours of sleep at night all week.

    Might Be A Sign

    I wonder if one should see that as a possible sign that perhaps one is spending a bit too much time on the ole computer?

    Emailing In My Sleep

    I hate falling asleep at the computer, because my bed is more comfortable. What the heck is wrong with me that I'd nod off in a less comfortable environment? I used to have a sleep disorder that would see me up all night and all day, till I'd eventually just collapse from...

    it's so relaxing, not to mention how good it smells. it's the only time I can easily fall asleep. I always wake up refreshed if it rains through the night.
