Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 61 People

    I'm usually the kind of person

    that doesn't take naps. Compared to everyone in the family, me and my mom are the only ones that don't even take a nap throughout the day due to the fact that we're both light sleepers. About a month ago, I took my first nap in years, lasting only about 30 minutes. It took...

    I Thought I Was The Only One!

    Everyone I know find naps to be refreshing to them, but I hate the feeling of waking up after a nap. Ever since I ceased to be a child, naps just make me feel super tired and weak. Not to mention I wake up feeling super nauseated and often throwing up. Plus, an hour nap for me...

    It Might Be Just Me. ^_^

    It's weird, because when I checked a few minutes ago for all groups on naps, every single one pinged back as being about how people love naps, or afternoon naps, or naps after thanksgiving; none, however, on people that don't really like naps! Now, don't get me wrong, the idea...
