The light gets me if I keep them on. I can't sleep without total darkness.

There have been several times where I've been so tired that I passed out with the lights on, as well as being fully clothed (including shoes). I'm not worried about things "getting me".

I have a night light in my room but only so I don't trip over something if I get up in the middle of the night. Its not bright enough to disturb my sleep but its enough so I can see where I'm going if I get up during the night for a drink of water or to go to the bathroom.

No lights for me. I don't need a nightlight -- after 32 years I know my room well enough to get around in darkness.

I used to when I was young. Sometimes if I watch something scary and then go to bed before my husband, I'll leave it on. Not too often though.

I always keep a night light on in my room and the bathroom because I have a very small bladder, which causes me to have to get up during the night and I don't want to bash my skull in from running into the wall. Also I feel like I've went blind when I'm in complete darkness and that's not a good feeling.

For some reason, whenever I am sick with the flu or a bad cold or something, I cannot sleep without full lights on. I feel like dork, but for some reason they have to be on. :)

this has made me think that what if something is wrong with me now? :afr ....i sleep with the lights on allllll the time.......at least when i am at home.....i dont knwo why?? may be it is a comfort thing??? i dont remember how i started or for how long i have been like this?.....i think i got used to sleeping with the lights on since i have been in my new program at university and studying at night...?....i would sleep sporadically every now and then at night times during exams...i know that is bad.....but i felt that it was easier for me to wake up with the lights on and start studying again (although i dont have good concenration)....but even now that i am done school....i still sleep with the lights on :stu ...i feel more comfortable with it on???.....my family gets annoyed....and i get annoyed when they turn my lights off......i just feel that i can wake up easier when the lights are on......i am no longer used to total darkness.....but lately i have been practicing to sleep with the lights off...when i know i can sleep in the next morning, i sleep with the lights off.......sigh........great.......i guess im the odd one out on this one now... :con

Oh pffft no, I love it pitch dark to really sleep well. I also like to be completely covered, including my head, I usually have a pillow or something over it. :lol
