Are You a Light Sleeper?

Me Sleeping - Me sleeping

I pretty much always have to sleep with ear plugs and a sleep mask since I sleep so lightly. Someone can walk past my door and it will wake me up! Oh, what I would do for a good nights sleep!

I sleep pretty well, but if I fall asleep knowing I have something to do, or not wanting someone to walk up on me, I'll wake quickly and just in time.

When I was young I lived in a really creepy old house, I wasn't able to sleep there... There, happy?

I am the opposite I guess. For starters I just don't get sleep. There are times when I don't sleep for a few days running and when I do sleep I sleep for 2-4 hours max at a stretch. But when I do sleep, i am a sound sleeper. Nothing wakes me. I have even slept through an earthquake in the past.

Oh my gosh! That must be really annoying. Are you still able to function fully (mentally as well as physically)? I get tired on a regular/normal basis, but just can't sleep well when I do.

I don't know about mentally (always believed I was a nut case in disguise), but physically, yes, I am able to function fully. I mean, I have never dropped half way through work, nor am I any less efficient than I was a few years back. I would not be a manager, second in command at my work place if that were the case. So, in all, it affects me emotionally more than anything else, because at my core, I love to sleep :)

I can sleep through thunderstorms. But, if there is so much as a pin dropped in my house, I am wide awake. The only other time I will wake in the night is if my husband gets out of bed. Wide awake and searching for him. I have a hard time going back to sleep once I have been shaken from my sleep.

Hmm... that's interesting! I wonder if thunderstorms or other loud noises have a theraputic quality that keeps you sleeping? I know they offer recordings of thunderstorms for people to listen to in order to relax enough to fall asleep...

I can actually sleep through anything at all, except if my baby girl makes a noise *lol* Honestly I can sleep through everything but if she cried or said my name I hear it just like that.

Yes, I am a light sleeper and can't sleep even with just the sound of the dripping faucet in the bathroom much less with my snoring hubby. But I never use mask or ear plugs to be able to get sleep. I just don't know but I dose off eventually.
