16 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleep [Infographic]

I have been experiencing horrible insomnia lately. It got a bit better last month when I started taking sleeping pills, but now I almost feel like my body has become immune to them. Can this happen?

Whenever my body is in dire need of sleep it responds with migraines. Needless to say I have not been a happy camper lately.

Coincidentally, I found this interesting inforgraphic about sleep over at haha.nu today. After looking it over — and realizing the crappy state of my own sleep-deprived body and mind — I have no doubt that you will die of sleep deprivation before you die from food deprivation.

      sorry if that sounded against you at all, it wasnt meant to…I was just referring to this sounding more like Mythbusters “fact” rather than Science “fact”

    So sorry to hear you aren’t sleeping and that you are getting headaches too. I hope you find a remedy soon because I can only imagine that insomnia could be one of the worst things ever. :(
