I think I may have sleep deprivation, but would like others to confirm my assumptions. When I wake up from a sleepover at a friend's house, I feel extremely nauseated. At first I thought it was anxiety because walking around really helped, but now I'm realizing that in all of these sleepovers, I'm getting an average of 3-4 hours of sleep. I start college in a few days, so late nights and early morning classes will start to become a regular thing. I feel like whatever this is is starting to take a toll on my life, and that's the last thing I need right now. I don't take any pills and have no diagnosed diseases. I also want to mention that lately I have been getting what I believe to be "mini anxiety attacks" consisting of shortness of breath and anxious/nervous feelings. They are few and far between, but I thought they were worth mentioning. I really appreciate the advice in advance!
The signs that you are experiencing is a sign that your body is complaining. 3-4 hours of sleep a day is not enough to restore the energy you have exerted in that particular day. Try to have a break and take a rest. Worst case scenario, you will experience major illnesses in the coming days if this keeps going on. Sleeping is very necessary for us.
So hope this help.
I would politely decline any sleepover invitations so you can rest up before you start college. College classes are much more demanding than high school classes, and it isn't a good idea to start your education tired and sleep deprived, as it will affect your concentration and ability to learn and remember. You will need to set priorities at school too, and be able to say no sometimes when it comes to late nights and partying. The anxiety is natural given the changes in your life coming up. But you will soon adjust and have lots of new friends and fun while away at school.
