4 hours of sleep a night - Am I about to drop dead??
I'm 21 years old, only been averaging about 4 hours of sleep a night for the past three years. Before that I slept plenty, 7-8 hours a night. I got scared of having dreams, so I started deliberately limiting myself to little over 5 hours of sleep a night to avoid getting dreams that're too vivid. Some nights I barely sleep more than an hour, which brings the average down to four.
I recently learned about the dangers of sleeping that little, though. And now I'm scared. Am I now screwed for life? Is there any way I can undo the damage I've done to my body by sleeping so little for the past 3 years? I don't have any diseases that I know of, but I must've screwed up my immune system badly. Am I done for? Is there any way to make up for this?
