Im not a "real" grown up because....

I'm not a "real" grown up (at 25yo) because I cannot fully function on less than 6 hours of sleep. Even with caffiene. It happens at least once a week though thanks to my kids, as I know is the case with pretty much every parent on the face of the earth, and i usually get just enough to get by.

But I turn into a sensitive, clumsy, mess on less than 5... which happens about once a month. Biggest reason I kept the kids in bed with me as infants... So I could sleep. 

But it seems whenever someone asks me what is up because it can be obvious I'm not able to concentrate and get stuff done, and I say "I am running on 4 or 5 hours of sleep (or less even... im running on 3 today, which is what inspired this post)" I get a "welcome to being an adult" or "Well I sleep less than that every night" response... even from my DH, (who btw sleeps at least a full 8 EVERY NIGHT and trys telling me he sleeps less than me... and is the BIGGEST jerk if he doesnt get 10 hours)

I have to work tonight, fml, there will be no naps in my future either. Im gong to be on a caffiene drip all day and night so I can keep my composure tonight at work. 


What is your "Im not a 'real' grown up because..."

I have never had anyone tell me that sorry. Your husband is an ass and you let him do it to you. Tell him you are in a partnership in marriage and he needs to step up and help.

I guess I would be the same as you--I have seizures and I need at least 6 hours and 45 minutes of sleep plus one nap (at least 15 to 20 minutes) a day to properly function.  Yes I have gotten it down to the minutes of how long I need to sleep.  This also prevents me from having seizures when I recieve the proper amount of sleep. I should be fine today for I got 7.5 hours of sleep- 9:30 pm until 5 am
