    Fell Asleep At Computer

    Been there, done that. Must have been tired as I went to bed when I woke up, and fell asleep very quickly.

    A Few Times...

    College student, cramming in one more paper last minute or trying your best to write it better then before. I'm an awful writer, no sense of correct grammer whatsoever. Papers and chatting online to a few people i just couldn' say goodnight too :)

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    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

    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...
