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

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:

I think i might have it.
even if i don't trying to sleep at night, then being tired all day, is definitely not fun.

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. :)
Of course it isn't. It makes me feel paranoid.
