I have no trouble falling asleep..staying asleep is another matter. By definition, I suffer from insomnia. I blame the cat.

not these days.

but i've struggled on and off with sleep problems my whole life. so i have a whole set of rules i follow to avoid it and nip it in the bud if it rears its ugly head again. so far so good.

Every once in a while, but it's not getting sleep isn't as much of a problem as it used to be. Apparently, one of the requirements for being a teen is being slightly bleary-eyed all the time.

Let's let the sleep topic continue! Next question - have you ever walked while asleep and if yes - any interesting events?

Insomnia- never before in my life but in the last two months. I'm hoping for a constant manic state.
Sleepwalk or anything weird- no.

Roze,

I paid money for that love seat, it's DESIGNER, so I have dominion over it's life. What I'll likely do with it, as my property, is pawn it off on one of my friends or a compassionate family member, without disclosing it's bad points. Or bring it to one of those humane settee organizations,they'll take good care of it. My conscious is appeased. It doesn't match my new carpet anyway.

i once sleepwalked from my dorm to the post office on the michigan state campus. which translated to about a half mile walk.

it was the middle of the day and i was dreaming about needing to get stuff done and i became convinced that a particular bill i had HAD to get into the mail that day. in my dream the only place to submit outgoing mail was at the post office in the student union.

i got up, put on my shoes (fortunately i was napping fully clothed), and left with the envelope in hand. i have vague watery memories of the experience, feeling like i was floating across campus, or like i was standing still and campus was moving past me. i do remember peering closely at people who passed me, who peered closely back. i have to wonder if i was walking with eyes nearly closed.

then as i was crossing the park opposite the student union, something clicked and i came up from that sleep state and suddenly as my foot came down i realized i could feel the concrete sidewalk under my feet. and in that same instant i became aware of the breeze blowing through my air and i could smell the scents of the park around me. all of my senses returned at once and i stopped with the horrified realization that i was ACTUALLY OUTSIDE.

i ended up deciding to go ahead and finish the journey and deliver the envelope to the post office. but the experience really shook me.

^ excellent story

I don't have any sleepwalking adventures to match it, but I have been known to talk on the phone while sleeping before. I've woken up in the middle of a conversation and had to ask who I'm talking to and what we're talking about...

New query Feb 8th.

Tell about a regret, large or small, where there was a possibility that you could have changed the outcome of a situation for the better but chose not to act.

There was this guy, that could have become a good, supergood, mayhap even precious mate (i.e. like my Vanya). I should neither have started flirting with him, or rather flirting back (online), nor should I have met him in this context (IRL). Why I haven't changed the direction of things before it was too late? Silly hopes.
Rather big regret, still.
