Insomnia Isn't Funny by onnawufei Insomnia Isn't Funny by onnawufei
Insomnia isn’t staying up too late playing video games. It isn’t not being able to sleep on a Monday after staying up all weekend. It’s not just having a hard time falling asleep every once in a while. I kind of wish it was though.

Insomnia is so much worse than that. It’s laying in bed trying to fall asleep but not being able to. It’s waking up throughout the night, sometimes as much as once every hour. It’s waking up an hour before your alarm goes off and not being able to get back to sleep. And you know what’s worse? These things all happen in one night.

It’s getting out of bed and feeling like you were hit by a truck. It’s dragging yourself through the day as your emotions are going crazy and your brain feels completely frazzled. It’s not knowing if one little thing is going to set you off and make you scream or make you cry, not because you’re PMSing or because you’re in a bad mood it’s because DEAR GOD YOU JUST WANT SOME SLEEP.

Insomnia isn’t cool. It isn't funny. It isn't the punchline to a joke. It’s a big deal. People need to realize that.


Yeah I more or less c+p this from my tumblr

What is it with all the kids going "PROUD INSOMNIAC LELEL"

I'm no insomniac but it doesn't sound like something positive

I hate it so much! And I agree. When people say "I stayed up playing video games all night lol" it really fucking pisses me of. If you have the ability to sleep then go to SLEEP. Because I can't.

I can't sleep. I pick up my phone browse deviant art and put it down.
I close my eyes hear a sound then pick up my phone again.
Recently I've even started turning my light on then trying to sleep like that then turning it off.
It's self inflicted but I haven't been able to sleep for months, maybe almost a year.
Not sure if it's considered insomnia when it's mostly my own fault but it keeps me up until sometimes 3 am or later.
I don't find my situation funny nor the situation of others who can't sleep.
I'll probably use this stamp. Oh... I'm supposed to be sleeping right now, I can't.

I totally agree. I hate it when people complain when the "didn't sleep" last night or they went to bed at twelve and "feel so tired". I also hate it when people don't take it serious.

It sure isn't funny... Even less when in these days it's not rare for me to be completely awake 2 full days straight. Now being one of such nights, all I can think is that I need some sleep. In fact, I'd love to freeze the time and sleep at min. few years straight.

I've just started having insomnia since about two years back, and I think the longest I've slept in one night is maybe 5 hours. :I That was a lucky night.

I had insomnia all my life, accident, almost dead, lost insomnia, good 4 a while, but I began 2 miss it. There's a real strength to it, if you embrace it and are aware of the positve side.

I've had insomnia all my life, but melatonin helps me get to sleep fairly easily. I still wake up in the middle of the night occasionally though.

I don't think I have insomnia but I do think I have something similar.
Its really weird because it comes in waves.:hmm: like, one week I can sleep but I can't sleep at all for the next two weeks.
I'm pretty sure it's being triggered by the large amounts of stress I've been experiencing lately.
but yeah...being tired all the time is not fun at all.:hmm:

When I was a kid it was a serious thing for me, I wouldn't be able to fall asleep no matter how hard I tried. Now its not much of a problem and I can sleep much better. :)

Oh, do I know that feeling, it is terrible, not having a good nights sleep for as many years as one has lived. But, there is always a bright side, you never have to wear eyeliner (very, very badly hidden sarcastic tone) just sucks that i`m a boy.

My insomnia isn't too bad. I have sleep wake insomnia. I can get at the most 3 to 5 hours of sleep. Then there are those rare but relaxing occasions where I get the normal amount sleep. I'm just glad mine isn't as bad as others. It's still a pain in the ass though.

I think people think it's funny because they think insomnia = when you stay up all night watching movies and eating candy.
Insomnia sucks. I haven't had a good night's sleep in months, and every day I feel like I'm barely awake. :hmm:

I am an Insomniac. I can't take sleeping pills because if I do then I won't wake up for twenty-four hours. When I do get sleep, something always happens that wakes me up and no matter how tired I am I can't get back to sleep. My step-dad doesn't have Insomnia so he'll walk into my room, wake me up out of a sound sleep, tell me something unimportant then leave again.

What these idiots do not realize is that Insomnia leads to other health/physical/mental issues... such as anxiety, heart failure, depression, slow mind progression, so on and so forth. I would like to see the people who stay up all night playing video games then catch up on sleep the next day stay up for three days, be tired and STILL function like normal people and THEN call it funny. When they to that and prove it to me-- and I'm not talkin' about becoming a self-induced insomniac either because it still counts as insomnia-- then I will honestly become their servant for an entire week. Until then, they really need to suffer with something they don't have.

However as a reply to what you said before, the whole 'only idiots are proud insomniacs' I will say that I guess I am an idiot because I refuse to change who I am (and who I am is a proud insomniac because when I can't fall asleep I am normally typing out plotlines for stories, making AMVs or working on an ugly ass sketch that I will use at a later date) just because people don't understand what I have. But hey... "to each their own" I suppose...

Agreed, bro. I'm lucky enough to only get a night or two of insomnia a week (last night was one of those nights). Those nights make me end up basically in tears by the end because I just want some damn sleep, but I can't fall asleep. I can't even imagine how much it would suck having it every single night. :tighthug:

I recently had to go without some of my meds for four days and I had intense insomnia as a withdrawal symptom. I ended up taking a day off work just because I hadn't slept the night before. @_@ Thank God that's over!
