I wake up like all the time. Not for long, just a few minutes. Sometimes I wake up just to yell at myself, other times I wake up just to tell myself to go back to sleep, and some I wake up, straining my ears for footsteps, and a few times I'll wake up just because. I usually wake up two or three times a night. When I do sleep through the whole night, I think, "Dang! I went the whole night without waking up!" I'm 18 and I thought it was normal, that everyone woke up all the time, until my counselor asked how I was sleeping and I responded, "Well." Then a few days later she asked me again and I gave her the same answer, but this time she went into detail and I told her that I guess I wasn't sleeping well. Anyway, I'm often really tired, but I'm not sleepy. Is that bad or can I just ignore it? Because I've been like this ever since I can remember and I don't really have a problem with it.
