I Hate Being Woken Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 694 People

    Well...

    When I was a kid, I hated to be the last person to wake up, particularly if I wasn't at home (I still don't like it, but I don't do anything about it any more). I felt this need to be the first to wake, so my internal clock woke me up early, I guess. When visiting my great...

    I Got Woken Up By Thousands Of People

    I live in an old building on a busy street in a downtown area. Usually, when there is a parade or construction, they will inform us of it and ask us to park on the side streets. I manage to prepare with earplugs. Except for when there are running marathons, they won't tell us...

    I woke up this morning

    because i was told in my subconsciousness, "get up, we know you're there, get out." It was all scary and whispery and i don't know why

    Don't Do It

    I'm exhausted right now. It seems that almost every time I forget to turn my phone off when I take a nap, someone calls me. Just as I'm about to doze off, that very second I start to drift, my phone rings. I woke up confused. "What time is it?" I wonder, thinking I missed class...

    Taking Your Life In Your Hands.

    My family know better than to wake me up anymore - but a few years a go I got a dog called Boadicea. Boadicea sleeps in my room with me and has recently got into the habit of barking in my face when she wants me to get up. Needless to say, it does not bode well for her...

    I'm going in to work late today

    so I could have slept a few more hours. My husband decided I would rather a hug and kiss goodbye than sleep. Wrong, so wrong. Haha! I'm evil. Now I'm crabby.

    I Disconnect The Telephone When I'm Taking A Nap

    Once a few years ago I felt sleepy so I laid down on the couch and took a nap. I awakened to the sound of the telephone ringing. I looked at my watch and saw that it was 6:00. Outrageous: someone calling me at 6 in the morning! I answered the phone, and it was a sales call...

    Unless It Is A Dire Emergency

    I was used to not getting sufficient sleep while I was in medical school.  Emergency room rotations are a bear but you get through it. After a few years in private practice and you start to get into a routine.  I'm not a obstetrician.  Even though I deal in a highly...

    Not Pleasant..

    Waking me up is dangerous...when I was a kid I used to kick the person that tried to wake me up when I wanted to sleep. And now, although I don't do bodily harm, I'm definitely not fun to be around if I'm woken up! I'm groggy and grumpy and angry....its just not somewhere you...

    Need Sleep

    Since I don't sleep that well anyway, I really hate to be woken up, especially for no good reason.  My family knows this, yet insists on still waking me to ask stupid questions...my favorite...What time do you have to be up?  To get any peace at all, I have to tell...

    It's 7am and I am grumpy.

    Grumpy because I don't get the luxury of sleeping in on a day off. Grumpy because my significant other thinks that it is okay to wake up at 6am in the morning (on their day off as well mind you) and run through the apartment singing to themselves and slamming doors, cabinets...

    Mutate!!

    I get really snippy and mutate into a killer crocodile. Only way to soothe me is with the wonderful aroma of hot chocolate. Then I may go back to being, well, me. But I must first taste the heavenly goodness!!

    What Is So Important

    It takes me forever to fall asleep in the first place, not to mention after i have been woken. I am naturally a grumpy person when I wake up and my family knows that mornings are not the time to mess with me. But you better fear if you wake me up on purpose or by accident for no...

    A Very "light" Sleeper.

    I find it difficult to fall back to sleep when I get woken up (for example:  when I'm sleeping and my DH comes in to the room and reads).   And then I'm quite in a bad mood too, 'cause I can't get back to sleep!    I can't sleep whilst the bedroom...

    Jumpy Sleeper

    A Shame

    It's a downright shame when you are forced to wake up to an alarm or by someone shaking you. It's such a lovely day when you can wake up naturally, on your own terms.
