The Top Ten
Stress from the day's events, worrying about the next day, etc...
They could be bad or exciting thoughts, both types make it hard to sleep. You could also have sad thoughts but most likely it's either happy or scared thoughts. - MarioMaster101
The thoughts make it so you feel like something's behind you, under the bed, and all sorts of other scary stuff.
I guess this is the only thing I can think of that really pertains to me. I don't mind possibly being killed by a serial killer in an Ed Gein-like fashion, although I would like to prepare for anything in that kind of case. - EdGeinFanV 10 Comments
So true like I'm so hot under the covers - Luckys
It can be difficult to sleep when you're sweating. One time, the air conditioner was broken, and I was sweating. Good thing I had my fan on. - EpicJake
Sometimes it's so hot in my room, I drag in a fan or two then go to sleep... - Turkeyasylum
I hate sweating in bed so much! 😭 - Userguy44
I wish I had somebody behind me
To hold me - PICKLEMAN
Ay I get that feeling not only at night - Luckys
I had this obsession with reading short two-liner horror stories for about a week, and a bunch of them were about murderers and people hiding under the bed. It came back to haunt me at nights because I would hear the house creaking or the dog breathing loudly, or my shower head dripping from the shower that night and I would get so freaked out and hide under my covers until I was drenched in sweat..thankfully I'm over that now..even if I still leave the lamp in the bathroom on at nights...
For about a month this past year, I had crazy paranoia that people were appearing in my room or that people were watching me at night... Good grief, I couldn't sleep with the lights off for weeks. And that was on top of my insomnia. - keycha1nV 5 Comments
So annoying. Luckily I have my own bed room where I hear no snoring at all! - Userguy44
I'm lucky enough to be the only one on my side of the house, so I don't have to listen to it, unless I'm at my grandparents. I'll literally be all the way on the opposite side of the house and my grandpa's snoring sounds like he's sleeping right next to me, snoring in my ear..
My aunt Dottie snores so loud and it’s so annoying - DrayTopTens
I sleep alone, so that's not a problem for me, ha! - AnanyaV 3 Comments
I just walk around in circles.
That annoys me SO much. I'll finally get into the one comfortable position in bed and then I'll realize that I have to pee. I'll debate whether or not I should go now or wait for 10 minutes and finally decide to go pee. I get back in bed, and 20 minutes later after eventually regaining the comfy spot I realize I left the big light on in the bathroom...ARGH!
Suddenly feels thirsty, Needs to drink water (gets out of bed).
*Five minutes later*
Now needs to pee (Gets out of bed again).
*2 minutes later*
Feels thirsty again *sigh*. - Kiteretsunu
I have slept later than usual 9 times in the last 3 months. Sometimes it was dawn by the time I fell asleep. - allamassal
Since that I have Aspergers I am very positive that I have insomnia my whole life and I sleep with my parents to help with my insomnia.
Anyone relate to this? - ThatStrangeKid42
It's too hard to sleep. - AnonymousChickV 6 Comments
I listen to whatever is on my playlist when I'm trying to go to sleep. It doesn't help, but I got some tunes to jam too! - Luckys
I'm not allowed to sleep with music on
I listen to alternative music because it is my favorite!
Weirdly enough, I listen to country going to sleep - PackFan2005V 4 Comments
A bunch of times I stay up late to finish a dumb project and I set my alarm for 3 am to finish the project and its hard to sleep because I'm worrying about the stupid project. - Imreallyboredrightnow
Lol I don't do that...
Who does? Not me at least - Ananya
I’m worried about that people will hate me because I’m on break until June 29 but I can’t sleep and I have nothing to do, so...
I have to get temperature, outside volume, hunger, thirst, mind state, body pressure and various other factors sorted and optimised to even hope for sleep. Getting to sleep at night is as arduous as staying awake at day, and doing what you want and need to do. - PositronWildhawk
I can fall asleep IF I'm comfortable. I need it very dark and silent. I also need the correct temperature and body position. - PianoQueen
Yeah, sometimes if it's too soft and not firm enough my neck sinks to low and my head's in the wrong position
Even if the pillow is super soft it sometimes still feels uncomfortable. - cosmoV 2 Comments
I can't sleep when the room is that quite, I need some kind of noise when I sleep, like leaving the fan on or something like that. - Kefka
This is especially scary when you have *that one thought* at the back of your mind. - Rocko
Enjoy the silence! - Userguy44
And now I just sit in silence!V 7 Comments
I actually don't like going to sleep during a thunderstorm because I love the wonderful sound of thunder and rain. But I can't help falling into blissful sleep because it's so relaxing. - Britgirl
Thunder! Feel the thunder! Lightning and the thunder!
The worst is getting woken up in the middle of the night from the biggest thunderclap you've ever heard. This is almost always associated with that extremely close bright lightning flash. I lose sleep all the time because of a fear of this. - matty925
I’m not afraid of storms, they’re just annoying. I was once having a great and sunny dream when I hear rumbling in the dream. But when I woke up, I realized there really was thunder outside at 3 in the morning. The lightning flashed brightly even through my blinds, making sleep impossible. - PackFan2005
Trying to stay cool is my issue. No matter the time of year, it’s always a struggle to keep cool and rotating my pillow every five minutes - PackFan2005
Listen every breath you take while this. - Userguy44
Half the time, this happens to me because my sister is being weird and staring at me. Or my brother. The other half is due to my paranoia. - Elric-san
Prepare for a wet sheet tonight...HAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAHA just kidding, eww why would people wet the bed anyway?
I have it now. It hurts so much that I can't sleep 😭 - Userguy44
Ahhh that really sucks :(
It’s quite unlikely that Impractical Jokers is on at 12 A.M... Wait, is it?
Yah. That's the life I live every time I go to bed and relieve - dipperpinesfangirl618
I can't sleep when this happens
This happens to me all the time. - Ku
Every time I'm in bed, I always wait until 6:00 in the morning to get up! I can just see the hours ticking closer to my goal...but it takes ages, 11:00...12:00...1:33...AGH,
Especially when it leads to diarrhea in the middle of the night...
My cousin's stomach won't shut up and it sucks cause one it hurts
Him two I'm next too it. His arm would sweat on my pillow so I have to put my head on or near his stomach and all I can hear is his stomach.
My dogs are such attention-hogs! I'll be laying in bed and one of them will walk up and just put their head in my hands and nose me until I start petting her. Then the other one sees and doesn't like the thought of getting less attention and he runs over and butts the first one out of the way and I don't get to sleep because they're wrestling each other for attention (literally).
As someone with IBD I hate this - PICKLEMAN
Ew what?! - TheMinecraftGamer
I don't know whether this is just me or this is the case for anyone else, but when you try to fall asleep and you are sick, even if it's just a cold or a cough, you WILL have nightmares. And they're always really screwed up. - Rocko
I mostly have no dreams or good ones.
I put something scary and this right here at night. Lololololololololololololol
