Never have. gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

No, I really don't sleep well. I usually sleep less hours at night but end up napping.

God no. If its not anxiety keeping me up all night or 2 hours sleep at best, its nightmares waking me up multiple times a night every single night. And I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea on top of that, and sleep machines are expensive. Though I think its gotten a bit better for me recently, the apnea.

No. Someone doesn't want me to concentrate at all, because they see me using my mind. Instead they pick on my sleep to reduce my awareness intentionally. Not only that, I receive a social barrier and language barrier from people in general. Where the people aren't interactive towards me in an important situation. And the people have a tendency of telling me that my words are unclear or repetitive to isolate me from speaking.

The Multi-Agent Quantum AI Computers broke my sleep. I'm not able to maintain any proper sleep.

In the meantime. I'll perfect my writing techniques.

I go to sleep pretty quickly once I get to bed. Although I used to wake up about once each night and have to go to the bathroom, but I haven't done that in a long time.

My issue is mainly that I need to get a better sleep schedule - I tend to stay up reading or online until about 11-11:45 during the week. On Friday nights I've stayed up as late as 2-3AM, and that really messes me up. I prefer to wake up early on the weekends - like 6:00 or so and then realize I can stay in bed for a while. But when I stay up late I won't wake up until around 8:00 and I don't like that since then it feels late and I'll waste the day if I stay in bed any longer than that.

I usually sleep well, but sometimes I wake up too early and can't get back to sleep. Occasionally I get sleep paralysis nightmares, but that is pretty rare compared to when I was younger.

Sometimes I sleep like a baby. Other times I wake up at regular intervals throughout the night. I'm also on generic effexor so I also have nights where I experience epic "WTF?" dreams! It doesn't happen as often as it used to but I've also had nights where I'd experience sleep paralysis which is a whole seperate can of worms while at the same time it's something I've come to accept and becomes an epic trip!

Suffice to say I mostly sleep and can function on little sleep but not as well as I can when I get a full 8 hours!

I always stay up late because of my anxiety, but now with the lockdown i sleep around 4 or 5 am and I wake up at 13.00. It feels bad because i'm missing half of the day. I stay up late because i keep thinking about stuff and how bad my life is, and I'm trying to make myself feel better before i get to sleep.

I used to sleep real good. When I'm stressed I can't sleep very well.

Mostly it's just the ole grindstone of waking up at 3-4 in the morning, exercising, doing my entire day, all so the fatigue of the day is so overpowering that no amount of stress could possibly keep me awake past 10.

Sometimes I do when I'm lucky. But I think my sleep problems are my own fault. Unlike most people, I HATE sleeping. It feels like I'm missing out on stuff wasting all that time being unconscious. Not that I would be doing anything productive if I didn't sleep, just watch more youtube probably. I have to force myself to sleep with medicine sometimes.

Haven't for years. Now I've got a cat that bangs on the door wanting to be let in at night so sleep is further eroded.

Got about 4 hours last night. That is probably my average.

What I hate about it is that the harder you try to fall asleep, the harder it is to actually fall asleep. It's the one thing where the more effort you give it, the more likely you are to fail at it. It has to just come naturally.

I don't have issues with insomnia, but I'm not happy with my sleep patterns. In the last few years, I've been finding that rarely do I get ready for bed and go to bed. Usually I just slouch where I'm sitting with the idea that I'll just rest for a few minutes while watching whatever or after I get tired reading. I stay up very late too, like 2:00 or 3:00 on average. Then I'll wake up about 6:30 and lay down again before I have to get up, and sometimes go back to sleep. Sometimes I won't sleep in those cases, in which case lying down for however long is wasted time. That happened to me yesterday.

Haven't been officially diagnosed with insomnia or hypersomnia, but it does seem the quality of my sleep isn't that great most of the time, even if I get my seven hours. Sometimes naps seem more refreshing than the actual sleep.
