I get up from my bed to turn off the TV and wake up

u/aeppelcyning Jul 02 '22

Always put it on a sleep timer! Then when yoy groggily wake up and see the tv on, you can doze off again knowing it's going to ultimately shut itself off.

It is so hard to sleep when you wake up just to brush your teeth

u/MatthewDLuffy Jul 02 '22

Yeah this one is the worst for me. I have enough of a hard time winding down for sleep, so I need to brush my teeth like an hour or two before bed because if I wait too long it will wake me right up

u/Some_angry_Bastard Jul 02 '22

Its because once you move out of that static body state your brain stops with sleep hormones and starts producing hormones that will wake you up

Thats why when you move from couch to bed you lose that sleepy state

If I had a dollar for every time I was nodding off in front of my computer only to go to bed and be unable to fall asleep….

u/MajesticWeasel34 Jul 02 '22

This is really me, so I'm awake the whole night

u/harshstanza26 Jul 02 '22

This is so realistic and I'm always experiencing this

u/Awake-RU Jul 02 '22

u/realityisoverwhelmin Jul 02 '22

All the time lol

u/Whiskey-Weather Jul 02 '22

I have in the past. I hate this experience so much, that if I fall asleep anywhere besides my bed I never hit the "deep sleep" and will wake up every 15-20 minutes until I finally get up.

Not suspicious or specific.

u/96hosck Jul 02 '22

And every time it's not your bedtime you're always tired, but mysteriously become awake the moment you hit the bed

This isn’t specific it’s a “relatable” “joke” that’s been shared actually forever. This is like “my wife is such a nag” level of hackneyed lol

u/AnemoTreasureCompass Jul 02 '22

It happens to me all the time.

I’m on my bed watching Youtube

I start to feel sleepy. Can’t concentrate on Youtube anymore

I reach over to charge the iPad on the nightstand

I’m now ready for bed

Wait no I’m wide awake now wtf

u/oogrrl Jul 02 '22

If I'm having trouble sleeping I try putting my head at the foot of the bed. Still struggling? Try the couch. Desperate? Fill the bathtub with every pillow and blanket I can find. Kyle XY that shit

u/Ducatirules Jul 02 '22

OP could just say couch

u/sad_post-it_note Jul 02 '22

u/New-Worldliness5163 Jul 02 '22

u/obscurecitizen Jul 02 '22

It’s such a tease because you’re like “fine I’ll go to bed where I know it’s even more comfortable” only to arrive there seemingly WIDE-FUCKING-AWAKE!

u/Masterjax1920 Jul 02 '22
