    Suffocating

    I have trouble waking up because usually I'm having a dream that turns into a lucid dream(you are awake but still dreaming basically) that I'm suffocating. I try to wake myself up but I can't because in my dream I'm either under water, sticking things in my throat to make sure I...

    Chronic Morning Proscrastinator

    I will hit the snooze button over and over and over. I will set it four hours before I have to leave with all intentions of getting up at least two hours before I have to head out the door... but, meh, its never happens... **Sigh**

    Nigh Owl Who Loves Sunrises

    I have had trouble waking up for the longest time. I have tried tons of stuff (3 alarms, putting the alarm far away, having coffee nearby, etc). I usually sleep well (knock on wood) during the night, but waking up is hard! Some months ago I bought an alarm that plays songs from...

    A Daily Struggle.

    Even before I open my eyes I can feel the tail end of my dream disapearing like a jet trail. During my years of vivid dreaming I have honed my skills as a lucid dreamer. I can lucid dream, but only dreams that I have during rem. sleep, I cant make up dreams as I go. So every...

    It's a Daily Battle

    I prefer my dream world. I have vivid dreams that I always remember. They aren't always happy, but still, I like life there. Sometimes I'll wake up then go back to sleep just to go back to my dream. I get into a bad cycle where I sleep in, then I feel...

    I Hate My Alarm

    It ruins everything good for me. I'm constantly changing my alarm sound because eventually, I'll get so used to sleeping for just five more minutes that I will start to completely sleep through my alarm. I try to make my alarm a pleasant sound so that I don't hate it so much...

    At the Weekends...

    During the week, my partner has to coax me out of bed before he leaves for work, and makes sure that I am out of bed so I do not fall asleep again. At weekends, I just don't get up practically.  I love my bed at the weekends and love my Sunday lie-in more than...

    Morning Haters

    When I was still in senior high school, I had to set 2 alarms to wake me up. One next to me and the other in the bathroom. I would always snooze the 1st alarm off from my bed but to snooze the other one, I would have to get up. It worked ok sometimes, but there are times when I...

    I Often Want to Murder My Alarm Clock.

     Let's just say, I'm definitely not a morning person! I set my ever-annoying alarm clock every night and also make sure that my phone is turned up loud and on my dresser in case I oversleep and a friend calls to see why I'm not in class. What I really hate is when the alarm...
