    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...

    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...

    Not So 'powerful'

    A power nap is not powerful at all, for me! 90% of the time I woke up from an afternoon nap I felt more tired than before to the point of not wanting to even move. If I was unlucky enough, I would get a headache.I've tried 3 hours nap, 2 hours, 1 hour, 30 minutes and less than 15...

    I Don't Get It

    Every time I take a nap, I always feel more tired than I was before. Then when I try to go to bed later, it's really difficult to fall asleep... so, what's the point? O___o;
