Tytti Salo says
Happened to me so many times it’s not even funny. :/
This has been me on many occasions.
BJ Tennant says
This has been me for the last two weeks. 🙁
Felis Dee says
The worst is not being able to fall asleep all night only to finally nod off ten minutes before the alarm goes off.
Peter Watson says
Yes! That’s the ass kicker. The injury of no sleep combined with the insult of the alarm.
This has been me for months! What an exciting new depression development it’s been, too. Absolutely not another incitement to suicide, oh no not at all.
Happy Beaver says
Been there, done this, got fired.
Darja Rundqvist says
I remeber all too well what ithas been like *shrugs*
Sometimes the bear says
Sleep is so necessary and so fragile – I think people would be more understanding if we told them depression was a sleep disorder (mysterious but generally regarded as physical), rather than a mental illness (cognitive and physical but generally regarded as a mysterious moral failing). The insomnia is one of the worst, most draining and disabling symptoms, a long-term health threat in and of itself.
Someone I’m acquainted with committed suicide recently, incorporating the well-thought out suicide plan of “falling asleep at the wheel” to try and make sure his family got his life insurance. He almost succeeded since his medical records only showed insomnia treatment, but his blog posts came to light.
