Who needs it.
Insomnia: who else likes to think they have it?

I have the oddest sleep pattern ever. I'll have severe insomnia one night and not get any sleep, but then the next night, I'll sleep for like twelve hours...until well past noon. o_0;

Yeah, that's pretty much what I do. Eclectic Insomnia?

As someone who regularly manages to go through entire nights without sleeping I can also say that it is overrated.

At random times, I just CANNOT go to asleep. I eventually do, but by then, it's like 3 in the morning, so there really isn't even a point.

As for the times I can get to sleep, I usually sleep at around 11 or 12 PM (23:00 or 0:00). I wake around 6:00, so I don't get the required amount of sleep. And the effects are starting to show. I'm falling asleep in class. ;;

I love sleep.
But I don't like going to bed early.

Contradictions for the loss. ;;

For like 3 days I get good rest and then the next 2 days I can't fall asleep.

I love my sleep. And I don't get enough of it. I think that's a problem. :( If anything, I'd try to get as much sleep as possible, but I wouldn't want to waste my whole day sleeping, so yeah. xD I only end up sleeping only a portion of the day so I can feel happy with the amount of rest I've gotten.

I mean, waking up like what, 4-5 AM for school? This is ridiculous.

April 23rd, 2010, 8:18 PM
I know I do. I wake up like two or three times during the night. T_T That and I also end up checking HITT's blog, myspace and facebook because he posts stuff when I'm sleeping. He's touring Europe sooo... yeah. XD

I cannot force myself to go to sleep (unless I use allergy medication with its "may cause drowsiness" side effect. Hence my completely random sleep pattern, where I can fall asleep at basically any time and for any length of time. I've had two straight days without sleep followed by 17-18 hours of sleep.

I actually have insomnia, but I try to get to bed early, since I get up at 6AM most days. :( That fails miserably. Like right now. It's midnight.

April 25th, 2010, 2:03 AM
Yes, I think I have it. I can't get to sleep at the time I want. I mostly get to sleep around 2am-3am. I wake up randomly during the night too.

I like to sleep whenever. I usually take naps through out the day

I definitely don't have insomnia. I sleep 7-12h every night. I went to bed at 21:30 yesterday, and I got up at 08:00. 10.5h of sleep, unless I calculated wrong >_>

April 26th, 2010, 8:12 AM
Yeah, who needs sleep?

My philosophy is: "Why the HELL go to sleep when you've got school the next day and you can stay up real late and just enjoy your life?"

So yeah, sometimes I end up staying awake until 2 AM. Then my alarm clock goes off at 7 AM and I feel terrible since i've only slept 5 hours. :s

But I get through all the days anyway.

Oh, and a quick something:

I stayed up till 3 AM sunday night (the night to sunday, not the night to monday) watching Casino Royale. Then I went to sleep. Then my father woke me up by entering my room at 11 AM (-_-) and I got pissed off and went back to sleep. Then I slept until 4 PM.

That was a really bad idea. I couldn't sleep tonight. I went to bed at 2 AM (wow im smart) and woke up once every hour, and looked at my mobile phone. 3 AM, 4 AM, 5 AM, 6 AM, 7 AM, finally time to wake up.

The worst thing is, I didn't get tired until I went to school.

Diagnosed mofo ;P
Well sorta, just confirmed by a specialist.
I usually get to bed around 5-7AM on weekdays and tend to be awake through the night on weekends. Sleep a lot of weekend day times and drink lots of coffee when I wake up to keep me going.

Sleep is the BEST!! How can you not like it? On weekends I'm in my bed until 12 if noone gets me up xD

I hate insomnia threads on the internet because it's usually full of people going "I totally have it! I go to bed at like 3am and then get up at 7am for school!" No, no you don't.

:/ I had insomnia (albeit mild, I think) in my senior year of high school due to medications I was on and it was horrible. I would be up for days at a time because no matter how much I tried--perfect sleeping conditions and all--I would not be able to sleep. I was mentally tired and physically tired and I could not sleep. The only sleep I'd get was the two or three times weekly that I'd basically just pass out from exhaustion. (I stayed home those days--I missed a LOT of school.) I was prescribed sleeping pills which helped immensely (but made me sleep too much and I was drowsy all day afterwards... but at least I could go to school!) but it took me about two years--even once I was off the original medication that caused it--before I could sleep normally again (ie, sleep with any amount of light or noise in the room).

Yeah, after dealing with that (and I'm pretty sure I only had mild insomnia...), it just irks me when I see people claiming to have it for silly reasons. XD;

Anyway! I love sleep. I try to get at least 8 hours or else I don't feel quite rested. The best are the 10 hour stints I get to do on weekends... though anything longer and you feel no better than when you get 3 hours of sleep, haha.

I sleep for normal lengths of time. Apparently everyone here has something wrong with that; haha.

May 5th, 2010, 4:20 PM
i sleep too much. i'm constantly tired; even when i've had a nice, wholesome sleep the night before, i'll find myself unable to keep my eyes open and occasionally napping throughout the day.

May 5th, 2010, 6:11 PM
I certainly don't have it. If I actually listened to my body I would get plenty of sleep; I'm usually tired enough for bed by 11. I'm just too stubborn to sleep. :p

There's only been one night I could think of that I had anything close to insomnia, and even that wasn't so bad. I eventually fell asleep about... I think 4am, after hours of tossing and turning?

Sleep is very nice. I love it, in fact, and could spend hours off in my own personal dreamland. It feels great.
But sometimes I just have other things to do. Or I get distracted and stay up for another five hours. So my sleep pattern is highly erratic.

That's how I feel about like...every medical thread on the internet, hah. :P

I have a terrible time trying to fall asleep, and an even worse time getting up in the morning. I can be really tired, physically and mentally, but I have the hardest time getting my brain to shut off, or one of my medications still keeps me up. The temporary solution I've put in for this is to watch Battle Videos until I can't keep my eyes open anymore, it usually takes one or two to knock me out.

I have class at 8:30 in the morning and try to go to bed before/around 1 AM, but even if i do, I don't usually fall asleep until like...2 or 3. I've gone nights where I don't fall asleep until 4 or 5 AM, and ones where I go to bed closer to 8 or 9 PM. Whatever the case, I end up oversleeping on the weekend to make up for it. I hate oversleeping as much as I hate undersleeping, unless I'm just really desperate for some shut-eye.

I also can't pull a ton of all-nighters for the simple reason that I'd probably hurt myself if I did. The one time I pulled an all-nighter for school, I was able to get through two of my finals, then went to get my haircut immediately after and fell asleep in the chair. I can't risk falling asleep behind the wheel in the middle of the afternoon. :S
