Senseless insomnia sarcasm
It’s 5:00am in the @$%^&*()->! morning.
That’s what I get for thinking that an expensive brand of “sleep tea” was any better than the cheap stuff.
Yes, I was asleep at 10pm.
…and up at 1, and asleep at 2, and up at 3 and asleep at 4.
The misery of 1st world problems loves company, therefore, I am sharing statistics about insomnia whether you like it or not.
After one minute searching the internet, here’s what I found:
50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder.
48.0% report snoring.
37.9% reported unintentionally falling asleep during the day at least once in the preceding month.
4.7% reported nodding off or falling asleep while driving at least once in the preceding month.
Drowsy driving is responsible for 1,550 fatalities and 40,000 nonfatal injuries annually in the United States.
OMG!!! There are more than 40,000 people out there falling asleep while driving?
In fact… almost 39,000 people died in car accidents in 2020. This is, most definitely, a Hmmm moment.
Isn’t this frightening enough to make anyone want to take the bus…
…or the fact that people who can’t parallel park are allowed to vote?
Then there are the line cutters, the type of people who would blame a store window for an accident if they drove through it.
No matter how hard a road sign tries to spell it out for you…
…there is always that ONE person who wants to wander out of their lane:
IF…I could get to sleep, I’d be having more than a few serious nightmares right about now.
There are 330 million people living in the USA and 70 million have a sleep disorder That’s 21% of the population who can kill you in their sleep while trying to drive!
I think it’s best not to look for the number of meteors lurking in space that might kill us.
At this rate, I’ll be asleep again by Thursday…of next week.
