How good is your sleep

When you finally fall asleep, do you

1) Sleep soundly and comfortably
2) Have dreamless sleep but gets disturbed in intervals
3) Have terribly anxious nightmares and the sleep gets disturbed because of that. You wake up feeling sick anxious and it takes a while for you to fall back asleep.

If I manage to fall asleep, I usually either sleep undisturbed for 2-5 hours before waking up and being unable to fall back asleep, or wake up after 2-3 hours and fall back asleep for another 2-3 hours. I often wake from some sort of dream, but they're not usually nightmares. I'm unlikely to fall asleep after waking from a nightmare.

1. Once I'm out, I'm out! The house could be burning down around me and I'd be completely oblivious! If anything, I can sleep too long? I can sleep 12-15 hours, and sometimes longer without getting up if I don't force myself up after eight hours. It's like my body has no shut off that says I've had enough sleep! When I was younger, I could sleep even longer. I think my record was about 32 hours one time?

I actually look forward to sleep! It's one of the few times I'm not suffering with constant isolation, loneliness, and boredom. I will note that after 12+ hours, I'm no longer in as deep of a sleep and start having really weird and sometimes disturbing dreams. Not really nightmares, but strange enough they can be unsettling. Sometimes I'll wake up in an increased state of anxiety for a few hours, yet I can't really remember the dreams that caused it with much clarity. Just bits and pieces.

I work full time so I can't just sleep all day, but if I didn't have any obligations it would be easy to.

Lately I have been having more of #2 and #3. It sucks and I know it's because of being unhappy due to recently breaking up with someone . Just needs more time I guess.

Lucky enough nowadays to mostly enjoy the first option, although sometimes I wake up before the alarm. That happens when I'm particularly stressed or anxious.

Good thing I'm not depressed anymore because that sh*t made me have sleep paralysis and fatigue like crazy.

1 for most of the month. 2 maybe two or three times a month when something's on my mind. 3 maybe once every 2 months when I thought of something that's bugging the hell out of me or I'm sick. I can't sleep worth a damn when I'm sick.

I get 3 a lot. In fact, I slept about 2 hours last night - an hour at the beginning of the night, when I woke up in a panic and nearly had some kind of meltdown on the toilet (slightly pathetically) and an hour when it was just starting to get light - I stayed awake til dawn because I was worried about going back to sleep (extremely pathetically).

On the plus side, I'm getting a lot more reading done.

I'm lucky if I can fall asleep. But when I do, I'm out like a light!

It usually takes me anywhere between 1 and 4 hours to get to sleep, but once I fall alseep, I'm completely fine. I sleep with the light on (im scared of the dark), so that makes it a lot harder.

Mostly 1

If you're not part of the freaks, you're part of the boredom.


What other people think of you is none of your business
