9. You’ve undoubtedly come across some adult programming while scanning channels in the middle of the night.

Unless you want them to assume you’re some kind of nocturnal vampire.

11. You always have your bedroom fan running at a high speed to create white noise…

Which makes things very interesting during winter.

12. For you, sharing a bed isn’t the peaceful bonding experience it is for everyone else.

It’s a total nightmare!

13. Your kitchen is constantly picked apart from random late night snacking.

14. Which also ensures leftovers never make it to the next day.


15. Before you go to sleep you absolutely have to make sure your phone is on silent.

Even the slightest notification will awaken you.

16. At one point you’ve considered going to a sleeping clinic.


17. You struggle feverishly to not get up and go to the bathroom throughout the night.

18. It’s gotten so bad that this looks appealing.


Because getting up to pee means not being able to go back to sleep.

19. You are blessed with the gift and the curse of never needing someone else wake you up.

Because, unfortunately your internal alarm is always on.

20. At some point you’ve resorted to using sleeping pills to get you through the night.
