Forming My Support Group

I need some backup here. I don't want to feel alone in this.

Why do I need so much sleep? Honestly. I could be Superest Woman Ever if only I could get by on 6 hours of sleep. The way Bo does. He is his same usual self every morning after only 6 hours of sleep. How on earth does he do this? I mean, my car, my dog, and my kitchen floors would be immaculate if I could get by on so little sleep every night. Oh the things I could accomplish...

But I digress. The point of this is to round up my homies - Any of you out there with me in needing 7 hours' minimum? (And, really, I'm only consistently nice when I've had 8 hours.) Is this a male-female thing? Is there something in our ovaries that requires us to shut down for longer every day? Cuz it's freakin annoying.

Please please please tell me that I'm not alone. And, how many dudes are like Bo and able to thrive sleeping only a quarter of their day away?

  1. Holy crap...Woman, you are NOT alone. At 7 hours of sleep I'm tolerable to be around...with 8 I'm pleasant. If I get 9-12 I am at my peak. Or, 8 and a nap: that's really ideal. I've always been like this, too, and I don't know what I'm going to do when I have kids! They don't operate on schedules like that! Don't even get me started on my eating schedule. It is even more ridiculous than my sleep needs :)
