I have insomnia and have been up for 4 days strait now. When I tell people that I have it they feel sorry for me like I have cancer or something, but I think its great. Since I dont sleep that gives me more time to do the things I love like watch all animes I want to see, play video games, and browse the net. So my questions are. . .

1)Anyone else have insomnia here?
2)What do you do since you cant sleep?
3)Do you like or dislike it?
4)Do you sometimes wish you didn't have it, or do you take medication to deal with it?
5)Does it run in your family or is it just you?

Is it still considered insomnia is your sleeping schedule is just thrown off? You know, with summer and all.

I always thought insomnia was a serious problem that only applied to depressed people, or people who have tried to go to sleep but couldn't for a very long time (like, a few months to a few years).

1)Anyone else have insomnia here?

I don't have insomnia, I'm just highly efficient at managing my energy levels.

2)What do you do since you cant sleep?

Play videogames, read manga, watch anime. Alternatively, if I still have alot of energy I exercise.

3)Do you like or dislike it?

I don't care for it, because my eyes undergo all sorts of straining. By the time I do good to bed everything is practically a blur. Only real thing I can complain about.

4)Do you sometimes wish you didn't have it, or do you take medication to deal with it?

I'd rather not. I only take medications when absolutely necessary. Over reliance can make a person weak.

5)Does it run in your family or is it just you?

Just me, I imagine. No one in my immediate family has the same issues I have.

No

I think I may have caused it though, I started staying up late around 5 years ago and I got used to it, the longest I can sleep is 2 or 3 hours.

Answer:

1. I used to have it. Thankfully it's not so much lately.
2. I try to bore or tire myself until I can go to sleep
3. Dislike it. Lack of sleep is bad for your health
4. I wish I never had it then and I didn't take meds for it
5. It does sadly. It usually came from staying up all night intentionally
