Internal Alarm Clock

15 posts in this topic

Went to bed at 3:49am, set Alarm Clock for 7:40am,

I startled myself awake (nightmare) and litteraly as soon as I stood up out of bed and starred at the alarm clock it turned from 7:39 to 7:40 and the alarm went off. Less than 2 seconds after my having woken up.

What's more creepy than the fact that my alarm clock is Atomic Clock accurate is the fact that this heppens quite often. Bizzare & frankly, a bit perplexing.

Anyone else have this happen on occasion?

Sixty8, I'm in the same boat. If I make a mental note the night before, I will wake up seconds before the alarm goes off.

Now, the problem is, if I fail to set my alarm, and I wake up at the correct time, my internal "snooze" button doesn't work right--giving me an extra "hour" of sleep when maybe I'd want 10 more minutes LOL

I am up early every day. I lay and wait for the alarm to sound off at 5:05. On weekends I have to force myself to stay in bed until 6. No matter what time I go to bed.

I WISH I was that way.

In all honesty, I'll sleep until 2:00 in the afternoon unless someone wakes me up regardless of what time I went to sleep the night before. Alarm clocks literally have no effect on me when I'm sleeping. The worst part is that I HATE wasting the day sleeping.

I can easily sleep more than 12 hours at a time.

I had a weird spell this summer where I would wake up many days at 5:55 AM (I had to be to work by 7), even though my alarm was set for 6:15. Not 5:54 or 5:56...5:55 AM exactly. Even here at school, I usually wake up 10-15 minutes before my alarm clock goes off, and every time it freaks me out because I think that I overslept.

When I was younger I'd wake up at 7-7:30 AM daily and play Sega Genesis.

Now I can't wake up before 9 without my dad turning on my bright fan lights above my bed.

Happens to me pretty often...I set the alarm for my usual 5:30, and I'm awake at 5:25-5:29....then I hear the clock click softly right before the alarm sounds and shut it off..

If I forget to set the alarm, I'm still awake at 5:30... though I try and sleep in late on the weekends (7).

Alright, so I'm not loosing my marbles.

I mean it's happened a few dozen times in my life but this time it was creepy. It was litteraly like 1.75 sec. between me waking up and the alarm going off. Bizzare.

Every day. I always wake up between 15 minutes to an hour before my alarm is supposed to go off, and I can never get back to sleep before I have to get up.

The worst part is that I HATE wasting the day sleeping.

*nods*

I know this feeling all too well. When I was off work with the abdominal pains (medical leave), I'd find myself setting my alarm for 10:30 in the morning ... but invariably not completely waking up until about 1pm in the afternoon. I'd be so frustrated that I'd slept so long that I wouldn't do much the rest of the day :(.

But, on workdays, most of the time, my alarm will go off, but I won't remember hearing it go off. Then, I'm usually up a half hour later.

*shrugs*

And, yeah, Sixty8, you sure aren't alone in this :).

I am exactly the same way.
