Maybe OP lives far from school. I am legally blind , and went to a school 3 hours away and caught the bus at 4:30 in the morning . Sometimes people have to go to special schools , maybe OP is one of those kids . OP maybe you can do homework at school , or just pretend to sleep and get a flashlight . Good luck
102 - I don't know what it's called but I know some blind people have software that reads aloud text on their computer. That said, 55 said "legally blind" so he/she could be able to read a computer screen but still have vision that was impaired enough to make her "legally" blind. I had a friend in that situation.
104 my vision is 20/480 so I can see on my phone fine , I do not type on my computer due to my vision but I can read above 16 font so I'm good on this website . I'm glad you know what legally blind is as most people don't know . I use voice recognition for typing and am remarkably able to do most things a person with good vision can do . Have a great day
That's horrible. I usually only get 3 hours of sleep before school and I do just fine. I also get up at 5.
As adolescents, you're made to survive on low sleep well, but if you miss on sleep for years it will affect your growth and hormonal system. Just ask your natural D cup friends if they missed on sleep all the time when they were young. The show is right, but the mom is being retarded about it.
29, I'm a D cup, and I basically went through high school with an average of 3 hours of sleep every night. Same thing with a lot of my friends who have larger cup sizes. Lack of sleep doesn't have the same effect on everyone. In fact, I function pretty well up until 2 when I just completely pass out.
51 there's a difference between "getting straight As" and "doing your best." I feel like shit if I don't get at least 7 hours of sleep a night but could still get straight As with less because I'm good at scraping by. And everyone- you feel fine with 3 hours of sleep because you are hyped up on adrenaline. That's why, if you sleep like shit for 3 days in a row and then get better sleep, you feel awful the last day- your body realizes after a good nights sleep, "oh, we're not being chased by a tiger, I can finally admit how tired I am." You need the same amount of REM sleep as anyone else, you're just in constant "OHSHITOHSHITOHSHIT" mode.
I can barely function without 8 hours of sleep. I row and have to be up at 5am 5 days a week, so I have to go to bed very early to function properly at rowing and at school. So I defiantly agree with OP's mother. (I still mange to get my school work done well, it just requires better time management). My school work is also better the more sleep I have
I don't know about you guys, but I have always heard, all my life, that the adolescent requires 8 hours of sleep. Meanwhile, the adult only requires 6 hours of sleep. Those are the hours I slept when I was younger, and the 6 I sleep on now, as an adult. I feel just fine every day. I find it ridiculous to even think that one would need 12 hours of sleep. Unless you are an infant/toddler, then you don't need that much sleep, by any means!
My sister says the same thing. Shes an architect major, so she doesn't really sleep that much, and said she's better with 3 hours of sleep instead of 8. Honestly, when you sleep for short amounts of time, you don't enter the REM mode, which you're supposed to enter multiple times in one night's sleep to probably take care of your body. Sure you'll feel fine (maybe) on a small amount of sleep, but in the long run, you're messing your body up. Lol, can't wait for medical school and training when I'll be up for days on end! -_-
77- Your body would naturally force you to manage 5 hours of sleep. You would run off of adrenaline, and make it throughout the day just fine. It's very bad for your health to force your body to do that, but you could. 10 hours is considered to be over-sleeping, for somebody of your age. You need to try to sleep only 8 hours. Over-sleeping, in the long run, will make you very fatigued. Until you get to be about 17-19 years old, you'll only need 8 hours. Then you'll work your way down to 6 hours.
84, that great you are getting that much sleep.. You're young & going to school so you are putting your brain through a rigorous workout by learning new things then sports/practice on top of that. I've been told by many doctors (for my daughter) that teens need anywhere from 8-12 hours as they are still learning and growing.. So if that's what works for you then keep it up! :)
Sorry 82 but I literally cannot function on less than 10. I pass out in class. I sleep whenever, wherever. Go to bed as soon as possible. Wake up at 5:30. I average 6 hours a night. I have to force myself to stay awake in class. Then when I get home I take a nap which is usually about 4 hours. Then I do homework, eat, then sleep. All week long. Then on weekends I sleep 12 hours a night and wake up feeling great. Not everyone gets to enjoy their day like you do.
I don't want to thread jack, but I believe that casey deserved a fair trial. She got the fair trial by jury, but she didn't get the fair trial by media. I remember the day it was major news the first time, they were already calling her guilty, without a motive, weapon, or body. A group of men and women who didn't let the media influence their decision unamiously agreed that she was not guilty. This despite the fact that they were given false information (the man who searched her computer gave a testimony that she had 80 suspicious searches, but recanted the next day. That was covered up by the prosecution.)
50- I'm a case junkie. It's a hobby of mine, and it's something I'm very good at. Where most college students are out doing things, I'm sitting with my roommate going over court facts. I have looked very deep into the Casey trial, and fully believe that she was guilty of the murder of Caylee. I've also read about the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, and I can't feel that George is guilty. Nor do I believe that he is innocent. Or that Trayvon was at/not at fault. I think it was a classic case of wrong place-wrong time. But that's just my opinion.
