Okay, hello, I'm Worst, and that mascot is heckin' adorable. Maybe add some more insomnia-/night-themed stuff to his design (like really tired, baggy, bloodshot eyes; a yellowed, stained cup of coffee; and a watch set to 3:35 AM)?

I'm pretty sure I'm not an insomniac, just bad at sleeping, though I should probably do more research on all that. I take 1 to 3 hours to fall asleep, wake up about once per night at 3 or 4 AM, and I wake up between 5:30 and 6:00 AM. I'm usually only tired until about 10 in the morning. My dad's the same, and my mom is a slightly better sleeper. (Not sure why I felt like telling y'all that, but eh.)

Anyways, how's everyone doing? Also, kinda random, but are any of you artists or writers?

    Hi there!!

    That's a good idea, I might draw one myself of him using that mug suggestion. :3 ♥
    I have someone drawing him sleepy right now, when I re-format the thread, there will be little versions of him throughout!

    He needs a name though.

    As for you last question there, I am both an artist and a writer, though I am probably better at the writing aspect. When I can't sleep I have the best ideas (best of my ideas that is)
    Most recent written work.
    Most recent artwork.

Re: ☾ Insomnia and Insomniacs ☾ REVAMP

Postby Spearow » Wed Oct 04, 2017 4:09 am

    The main thread has been revamped. This is what I changed:
    ○ I changed the font to a darker color, for those that had problems with the grey.
    ○ I added the new mascot! (he still needs named though!)
    ○ I changed the overall layout for a better flow.
    ○ I added text dividers to separate sections.

    Need to do:
    ○ New discussions questions
    ○ Mascot blurb

How many hours of sleep do you usually get on an average night?
On average I get around 5-6 it just depends on a lot of things. I have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) on top of my insomnia, which I think the RLS is the cause, along with the anxiety I have, teenager things. Some nights my legs and knees will twitch and twitch and I literally cannot fall asleep, no matter the position, time, or no matter how bad I want to, I just can't..

Have you ever had any hallucinations from lack of sleep?
No, although I have gone into sleep paralysis, and I opened my eyes, which I regret to this day because I saw some of the scariest things I've ever seen before (if you count that as a hallucination, then I have)

How long have you suffered from insomnia?
I've suffered from insomnia for about 3 years now, I know it's not that long, but it feels like it's been forever

My oh my anxiety my old friend. Hopefully it is "teenager things" and you don't have to suffer through it for long. ^^

I have no experience with rls I think I would go crazy.


Slee paralysis is terrible, but if there is one thing I know. You are never supposed to open your eyes!
You are between consciousness and unconsciousness, so your dreams essentially appear before you as tangible things. And with sleep paralysis it is almost always, bad things. I've had this three or four times, I kept my eyes shut the last few times because I was aware of what was happening.
This is almost a sure way to give yoursef a panic attack, it can be so scary.

Any length of insomnia can feel like an eternity


Nice to meet you Sassy Mud!

Maybe try drinking something with a lot of caffeine, sometimes that helps me crash when burst of energy fades. xD


Just about to leave the mascot up to interpretation or a shapeshifter LOL
He just wants snuggles haha
Maybe I'll get some art of him in other species' xD

Nice to meet you Sassy Mud!

It's nice to meet you too!! And RLS,
is one of the worst things I've ever had to deal with, I've always had it, but it became a problem with my sleeping after I got into a carwreck when I was 10, RLS, is like having a cramp/chronic tightness in your knees, and you have to move and find the right position to make it go away, and if you think about it, it only gets worse. My doctor's tried to diagnose me with ADHD but through testing they figure out it was Rls, I have little to no relfexes in my knees/legs.

And the sleep paralysis thing, it was the first time it has ever happened to me, and I opened my eyes, because I thought I was awake, and I saw like a girl at the end of my bed and I think there was a doll or something, it's just a harsh memory now, but I did indeed give myself a panic attack and I woke up, for real, and I was gasping for breath and I started to cry.

Insomnia is rough on me especially, because I am in highschool (can't say grade cuz of Cs' rules) but I need the sleep, and I simply can't. My mind will be a million and two places when I need it to be quiet and focused on sleep.

How many hours of sleep do you usually get on an average night?
3-4. 5 if I'm lucky.

Have you ever had any hallucinations from lack of sleep?
I experience sleep paralysis once in a while. It's absolutely terrifying.
I don't experience any other hallucinations, though.

How long have you suffered from insomnia?
For around four years now.
