I don't turn on the lights when I get up in the middle of the night, because it strains my eyes to readjust to the light. Have you never sluggishly gotten up to use the bathroom, turned on the lights; only to hiss and turn them back off?

Easily. I re-arranged my room a few months ago. Woke up one night and I didn't know where I was for a minute or two because the moonlight coming in the window wasn't in its usual place.

When your pupils are constricted and you're sleepy, the last thing you want to do is turn on any light - especially bright downlights from the room ceiling.

Have you never awakened in the middle of the night and your mouth is so ridiculously dry that it causes your throat to ache terribly? Or how about waking up in the middle of the night and absolutely had to use the restroom because if you don't it feels as though your bladder will explode? Or maybe even waking up with a horrible case of diarrhea or feeling as though you might vomit? Each of these scenarios leave you with little choice but to get up in the middle of the night. And as for the OP face planting, they had just re-arraigned their bedroom. And when you wake up unexpectedly in the middle of the night you are very groggy and your brain is a little fuzzy, making it so much easier to forget that you re-arraigned your room. Furthermore, if you do turn the lights on, it will hurt your eyes. Maybe even cause them to water, which makes it very difficult to see where you are going even if you hadn't just re-arraigned your room.

Oh my, that is definitely something I would do. Did anyone else used to do a 'flying leap' to get back to their bed when they were little, to avoid the monsters? I'm pretty sure I missed a couple of times.

Thanks to my box spring not fitting in my bed frame, my bed was ridiculously high off the floor. I was nine when I got that bed and it came up to my ribs. I used to have to run from the end of the hallway and leap onto my bed. One night my mother asked if I did it because I was afraid, so I showed her that it was impossible to get up there any other way. But yeah, I definitely used to miss, or even overshoot and fly over the bed completely, and crash into my drawers. Good thing kids heal fast!
