Insomnia
« on: October 07, 2019, 05:17:24 AM »
So, is there like an Insomniacs Anonymous thread somewhere in this forum?   :bigspecs:

:wave hi: Hello, all. My name is xSilverPhinx and I am an insomniac. It's 1 a.m. I really should have resisted the urge to drink all that caffeine just a couple of hours ago. I really don't think I've blinked this past minute. Not too sure.  :watching: I've tried the sheepometry technique, when that didn't work I switched to counting badgers instead, but that only led to the Badger song playing over and over in my head.

For those who haven't had the pleasure of hearing the song, here it is:



I just yawned right now. Could that be a sign of better things to come?:notsure:

I remember that from the early 00s, back when flash was getting big. Many great flash cartoons from back then.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I've been an insomniac my entire life. Being up in the middle of the night can be OK, but being sleepy in the afternoon is a drag.

Yeah, it sucks. Do you take a nap during the day at some point?

Today it was nearly midday when I woke up. ::) Probably going to be up late another night, this time without the excessive caffeine.

So much for not consuming excessive caffeine. ::) I'm hopeless.

When I'm in the UK, I sometimes get a bit of a nap in the afternoon. Not so in the US.

I've been getting better, up to 5-6 hours of sleep a night on average. I only slept for 3 and a half hours last night though.

Get a night time job.

I've been an insomniac for ages, I work a graveyard shift. It's a perfect combination.  Add in some intense workout sessions, and you'll sleep pretty well.

Wouldn't work for me. Have you ever tried to handle a bunch of rats while they're fully awake? :panic: No thank you!  :nu-uh:

I'd be more worried about their fleas...   :snicker1:
