We’ve all had sleepless nights. But an insomniac has it the worst. Insomnia is the extreme feeling of helplessness when you can’t fall asleep at night and you have go to somewhere important the next day, it starts bothering you.
All the insomniac, night owls out there, you know the real struggle starts at night when you’re wide awake either talking to your ceiling fan or counting sheep, hoping that’ll get you some sleep. This is why you’ll absolutely relate to this very post:
1. The clock is never your friend
Every five minutes you tend to roll over to check the time and estimate how much time you will get to sleep if you fall asleep the exact moment. Well the clock ticks on but your sleep is nowhere to be seen.
2. Morning people? What’s that?
You are confused by them. How do they even function? Your mind constantly questions the reason for their upbeat energy every morning!
3. You never want to leave your bed
When the alarm goes off, you find yourself falling asleep more comfortably. Your bed magically turns into the coziest most snuggly place in the world. It’s like you’ve bonded with your sheets, pillows and blankets all over again.
4. The caffeine tolerance
You don’t even need a cup of coffee every night to stay awake. Sometimes you wonder does coffee work at all.
5. Your brain doesn’t stop functioning. Ever!
You just think and think and never stop to a point that along with sleeplessness, you now have a bad headache. You can go through the day, day dreaming about doing pointless stuff but at night, when you close your eyes, you suddenly wonder how the universe came into existence.
6. Dark circles
When you struggle with sleep 3 nights in a row, say hello to your panda eyes. It’s not easy treating dark circles when you know they are going to come around again. Sleep never tries to befriend you and now you’ve accepted the fact that you two will never get along.
