Some reason here lately I don't sleep but a couple hours a day.. And I wake up feeling fine..

It all started when I was working 84-90 hours a week. I did this for about 6 weeks straight (equaling around 40ish days with no off days working 12.5 hours a day sometimes more) I wouldnt get very much sleep.

Now I work 40ish hours a week and I go to sleep at around 9 am and wake up at 1 pm or like today I went to bed at 9:30 am and woke up at 11:30 am.. Ill be up again until 9 am the next day.. Am I sick?

Is this insomnia or some crazy thing considering I'm feeling fine?

Or am I just this used to being tired and being tired isn't anything anymore? lol

I need to know

Similar sheyt i haved recentlY.
U are not sick.
For few next days just go to sleep at same time. Just allow your brain adjust itself.
If u cannot fallasleep, just do additional work, like excercise or something, and go to sleep.
U can as anybody else, programming how, and when u go to sleep, and awake.
Also, usualy ""i cannot sleep issue" is unsolved and non aware your issues.
Solve that and u will be clear and sleep run live with much more energy, and less required and good sleep.

Sorry if i misunderstood, english is not my native language. Im still learing...

Answer: because u did not like previous job(or whatever u doing nefore current job), and or with who and what u dealin on old job.
Probably current new job is better for you. No problems, issues, crappy people, u ahve some purpose, u love whst u doetc.

You might not be sick now, but sleep deprivation can cause many health issues.
I would try to regulate your sleep.
Drink Chamomile tea at night, stay off of the computer and away from tv screens because the light confuses our enternal clock.
Do something to tire the brain such as puzzles, mind games, or read a book.

I think eventually such a small amount of sleep will catch up with you. You are adjusting to a new schedule and it might take a while for your sleep patterns to catch up.

LOL I'm not. I'm busy metalizing your future headlights -.- Making them shiny and all.

To everyone that reads this, next time you see or use your headlights.. Have a moment of silence for these things..

You wouldn't BELIEVE how much BS goes into making these things and looking for defects -.-..

specks less than .2 mm is the kind of stuff we have to look for..

And btw.. all of yours are probably bad
you wouldn't believe.. Leaks ect. I can even tell you the cars who will have future problems ;P

well its bad in the respect That people wont take you opinion or what you have to say serisouly, I get what your saying and agree why should I care, that's not all to life,
but most normal sleepers don't understand night folk have such amazing thoughts and ideas while being sleep deprived, that's all (-:

If I wake up in the morning time I can't do anything.. Literally.. It feels like my brain has been watered down and I am extremely lazy. I wake up at night time, I want to party or design some crazy sh##. If I wake up at 6 am, it takes me until atleast 1 am for me to not even feel like crap anymore.. even with 8 hours of sleep

Anyone who judges what i say based on if and when i sleep is likely a brain dead moron anyways...

So again, why would i care either way...

Well you got it half right...

I hold no value in other peoples opinions of what i say... IF you or anyone else doesn't like what i have to say... they are free to have their opinions.

I do however appreciate questions or positive feedback...

And just so you know im not socially inept... i simply don't care what others think of me or my beliefs

I am who i am.... nothing more
