10 Things Never To Say To Someone With Insomnia

10-Things-never-to-say-to-someone-with-Insomnia

Here’s a list of 10 things you shouldn’t say to someone who has insomnia, you may get punched in the face, just saying… ha! I used to get full nights of sleep and have no problem with sleep. But with a number of issues I have currently, I’m in a love/hate relationship with sleep. On a normal night, I get about 3-5 hours if I sleep at all. Sometimes, I just don’t sleep for like 48 hours, crazy I know.

1.“Just take some melatonin!”
You know once you take the same stuff after awhile, your body just gets used to it & it stops working. I’ve tried all of the sleep aids, Zzzquil, PM everything, Melatonin, nothing works.

2. “I’m tired, I only got 10 hours of sleep..”
Please, please tell me more about your #lifeproblems . If not getting your solid 12 hours of sleep is your only problem in life. I hate you. Seriously, I get 4 hours of sleep, on a good night. Some nights, I don’t even go to sleep, because it’s not worth being more tired than I was to start with, with 1 hour of sleep.

3. “Just drink some sleepytime tea..”
Have you ever tried that stuff? smells like toilet water, I don’t drink those crazy teas, I drink sweet tea & green tea, anything else just is nasty. But yea, it doesn’t work.

6.  “I had trouble falling asleep last night, too!”
Is not that I have trouble sleeping, It’s that I DON’T SLEEP! That’s my problem.

7. “As soon as my head hits the pillow, I’m out.”
You know what, stfu!


8. “I’m too busy to have insomnia..”
You, busy? me too, I don’t even know what I have to do, my body is always in zombie mode 24/7.


9. “At least you have more time to get stuff done..”
Yea, that’s right.. you know you need sleep to function right?


10. “You should have a beer..”
You know what, drinking doesn’t make me tired, it keeps me awake.. That makes more sense now that I think of it, lol. No one likes a sleepy drunk, haha

Do you have problems with insomnia or are you one of those lucky people who get to sleep at night with your solid 8?
