Who Needs Sleep? Meh…

Who needs to sleep, anyway?

I can’t get no sleep

I don’t really need very much sleep. I’m just a much nicer person if I get some sleep! 😉

My Mom told me she used to pray that I would go to sleep when I was a baby.

Insomnia is my ailment. Often times I cannot sleep even if I am exhausted. I used to read all night until I would fall asleep when I was a kid. As I got older I just stayed up all night.

I’ve been able to function efficiently on only a couple of hours of sleep. The past few days I’ve been getting over some kind of winter funk, so sleep has been my friend. However, usually I don’t really sleep all that much–or that well. I tend to wake easily and have very vivid dreams.

When it’s time to go to sleep I just lay there thinking…and thinking. What do I have to do tomorrow? How can I make more money from home? I need to call so-and-so… I’ll think of cool things to draw or fun stories. Sometimes it backfires and makes me even more awake, other times I bore myself to sleep with my own thoughts. Hahah.

Although sometimes I am tired during the day, I have my coffee to help me get by. I’m just used to living this way I guess.

My sister is an insomniac too. I guess it runs in the family! 😉 Do you have trouble sleeping? Or do you need at least 8 hours to function?

  1. I have always been a night owl and never needed as much sleep as most people. My Mom said that when i was a baby/toddler I would go for two days without sleeping for more than an hour at a time. I do need more sleep now, but usually five hours is fine and 6 is perfect. If I sleep any longer, I end up feeling more tired than normal.

    • I’m the same way! Too much sleep makes me feel over tired and affects my motivation. For some reason I can sleep during the day much better than at night when its dark. Maybe I’m part vampire? Lol
