    i was in the hospital because of my car crash for 6 days and in those 6 days i did not get one wink of sleep. every two hours it is medication time! at the time i suffered from hallucinations and that week was the most f#%&ed up moment of my life

    the day i went home i finally got some sleep and spent the next day sleeping all day.

    I occasionally get really intense migraines that stop me from sleeping. Nothing quite so bad as the rest of you have described though; the worst was a headache-migraine that lasted six days.

    I usually never go to sleep unless I get bored enough of whatever I'm doing throughout the day.

    Also, if you're gonna be up all night, you might as well get lucky.

    Usually just anxiety. I'm certainly no insomniac, but some nights I just lay in bed for hours.

    plus my husband has a CPAP machine to breath at night and it's really quiet except for when the seal shifts or moves then you hear really loud air rushing through something or sometimes it sounds like air in a balloon being slowly let out and the opening is squeezed together so it makes that high pitched squeeling noise.

    Sorry to hear- my mom has one of those. She moved on to getting a retainer looking thing that works as well as the CPAP does for her, though. Has he considered checking that option? (I know "retainer-looking thing" isn't very helpful)
    ---------------------------------------

    Always been a bit of a night owl, but have been trying to change it. It's really not healthy.

    Main issue is I'll start something and won't stop till it's finished, even if it takes 24 hours to finish. Supposedly it's related to ADD (called "hyper focusing"), but I personally think it's more of a habit that can be changed. Hopefully.

    It typically takes me and hour+ to fall asleep no mater how tired I am. There were times when I was hyper focused on a particular task that I wouldn't sleep for three to four days... Don't get me wrong, in those periods of time I would nod off and lose like 15 mins of time every 12 hrs or so but I don't think that really qualifies as sleep IMO. The really freaky thing about me and sleep deprivation is that I get honest, I mean REALLY honest. This sucked when I was in HS and would be on marching band trips that took all day or when we went to Florida and the other band members found out.... (I cannot sleep on a bus or sleep well in new places). I had no secrets after that and EVERYONE knew EXACTLY what I thought of them and everyone else. The real kicker is I still do that to this day and most of the time I don't even remember it. I love the night and always have but anymore I have to force myself to lay down at a "decent" hour so I can be functional in the early AM though if I don't I'm always more alert by the afternoon.

    son has issues with that he is autistic as well as ADHD his brain moves a thousand miles per hour because of the ADHD but his autism doesn't allow him to process at a thousand miles per hour.
    He talks all night long in his sleep, constantly, frequently wakes up from nightmares or worse night terror
    doctor says he will out grow them it is like his brain is trying to buffer or render the backlog during the night.

    I haven't slept for more than 30 minutes all month. Mostly due to chest pains and anxiety

    I work the graveyard shift so I don't sleep most nights, it's cool though cause I was born a night owl anyway, plus all the interesting stuff happens around this time.
