20 Signs You Might Be Sleep Deprived

Updated on February 3, 2018

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a self-published author. Her books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart—there is no other way.

Sleep Deprivation

It's a scientific fact that the human body needs sleep. In order for us to function properly we must get appropriate rest. Most of us need lots of it. Some of us don't need that much.

There are times when for one reason or another we don't get adequate slumber and it does catch up with us.

There are warning signs to be aware of that would let you know if you are possibly sleep deprived. I've included some signs below. Lack of sleep signs vary from person to person.

What happens to one person might not happen to another. We are all unique. We know our bodies and if one or more of these signs has happened to you I suggest trying to catch up with your slumber.

Some of us might feel that sleep is overrated and that you could survive with just a few hours a night. Some of you might think that you will have enough sleep when you are dead. This might be true also, but if you don't get enough sleep you might be dead sooner then you think.

Studies show that lack of sleep leads to obesity, depression, heart disease, anxiety and diabetes. Sleep is crucial to our well being.

How many times have you done something silly, mind-blowing or life threatening when you didn't receive the recommended daily dosage of sleep? I'm sure you have your tales to tell. Please feel free to share them in the comment section below.

20 Signs of Possible Sleep Deprivation

  1. You brushed your teeth with Preparation H instead of toothpaste.
  2. You washed your hair with Nair instead of shampoo. On the positive side, your hair will grow back.
  3. Instead of attempting to turn off your alarm clock, you turn your TV on, because you fell asleep with the remote control in your hand.
  4. While preparing your morning coffee you use corn starch instead of sugar as sweetener.
  5. The phone rings in the middle of the night and you pick up and speak into your slipper.
  6. You walk outside to retrieve the newspaper, wave hello to your neighbor. Her astonished expression makes you realize you are buck naked.
  7. Your pet pooch quizzically looks at you when you serve him a banana for breakfast while you are crunching away at his dog biscuit.
  8. You get to the office and realize you are still in your pajamas!
  9. Your wife calls to ask if by any chance you have seen your child's backpack, you look on your desk and Hello Kitty is glaring at you.
  10. In rushing back home to retrieve your brief case and return the glaring Hello Kitty to it's rightful owner you get a speeding ticket. When the officer asks for your license you hand him a condom.

More Signs You Might Need More Sleep

11. You pull into a drive-thru and order an egg sandwich and coffee. The person responds "will this be a deposit or withdrawal?"

12. You send a naughty text to your significant other only to realize that it went to your mother. She texts you back and says "Wait until your father gets home!"

13. After an extended period of weird glances from random people, you look down and notice that your fly is open. Your patriotic briefs are exposed! You proceed to salute.

14. You start to nod off while shopping at Kohls and decide to take a snooze on the bedding display.

15. While admiring the yard work that took you three hours to complete, your neighbor steps outside. He waves and says "Much appreciated, my yard has never looked better!"

16. You are startled awake by your cat licking your face. This tends to happen when you fall asleep while loading the dishwasher and you briefly rest your head on the counter.

17. While enjoying a day at the beach you fall asleep and wake up looking like Lone Ranger since you had your sunglasses on.

18. You post TGIF as your Facebook status only to be told that it's Tuesday.

19. You walk into a sliding glass door. Knock yourself out. Curl into a fetal position and take a cat nap.

20. You take a nosedive into your plate of spaghetti.

Is it time for you to get more zzzzz's?

You Could Try Counting Sheep

      This article is cute! I can relate to being sleep deprived. Just last week, I order a gift for my sister and completely forgot I ordered the same item for her two months ago! I spent more money on the same item the second time around. I just could not believe that I was that exhausted and completely forgot what I did!

      Hi Sunshine,

      I know I read this before and it is so cute and funny I had to read it again.

      I go to sleep at my computer---I am so tired when I finally make it to my computer room---until sometimes I turn it on and Mr. Sandman is waiting.

      You have a wonderful Wednesday Dear Linda and kiss the babies for me.

      I went to the doctor just yesterday for insomnia! Wish I had read this first, so I could provide examples of the funny things I had been experiencing.

      Doc's advice? Quit worrying about not sleeping, and you'll get enough sleep. Got the best sleep last night I've had in months!

      Linda Sue....Those adorable pictures of a puppy, kitten & toddler down for the count in unusual positions are simply too funny.

      I wish I could say my sleep "issues" have all been solved, but no such luck. In my case, I don't think it's because I am sleep-deprived.

      I think I simply screwed up my own schedule so incredibly since I retired. I see the entire 24 hour rotation as MINE all mine to do with as I wish!

      There's probably a "name" for this too, but I'll be damned if I know what it is.....Time Hoarding??

      Shareye......Wait! You mean we shouldn't put laundry in the fridge?

      Too cute. I have seen some of the really cute falling asleep positions that my grandsons have wound up in. How funny.

      Back in my college days, just out of high school, I was mostly sleep deprived. Many times I went to class in my nightgown under my coat because it was 5 minutes till class was to begin. One day the professor asked me to remove to coat and come to the board to conjugate a verb ....I made some lame excuse but I am sure he had seen many girls come to class in such attire. Thanks for the smiles. Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

      Haven't done any of these particular things...but...back in the day, running around like a crazy person when the kids were little (before they started getting rid of aerosol cans of everything)...there was the mistaking of the hair spray for the deodorant...and my grandpa once put shaving cream on his toothbrush...

      These days, I'm always sleep-deprived for various reasons, mostly stress-related. So, if I feel like taking a nap at dinnertime, I do.

      Voted up, funny, interesting and useful...

      P.S. That's a darling kitty photo you found--I've seen kittens do funny and cute.

      When I was a student I travelled from the UK to the US for the summer to work, and got 2 jobs, one at Shoney's and one at Holiday Inn in Cookeville TN. I pulled 2 double shifts back to back, and by day 3 without sleep I was starting to hallucinate.

      I finally was told to go home by my boss when he found me asleep on the toilet in the staff restroom, and I slept for 18 hours straight.

      Happy times! Now I have 4 kids and no sleep ever.

      Well, I haven't done any of these, but I did doze off while eating a sandwich on the couch and woke up to the dog eating it out of my hand. My hand was down on the floor, he thought I was offering it. I have also dozed off while babysitting my FOUR grandchildren, ages 1-7. You would think that they would keep me awake but they were quiet for a second. Woke up with one of them sleeping on me.

      Since I haven't gone to bed yet, after staying up writing and deleting poetry all night, and finally coming up with my latest listing of memories, I'm going to make this short. Blew that already, haven't I?

      Thank God Linda, I just had a nap! Great signs no doubt. You had me tickled. BTW, I grabbed the remote once and hollered into it thinking it was my cell.

      Voted up and funny and shared.

      Hi Linda,

      Great hub. Speaking of being sleep deprived I once went to work wearing my pants inside out. I went half the day before noticing. No one said anything, maybe they were sleep deprived too. lol

      Voted up up and away!

      Enjoy your weekend. :)

      I'm guessing by all these comments that many more are sleep deprived!! I think we all need to add a few more cat naps to our daily schedule:)

      Thank you all for sharing!

      Hilarious! I know those signs by heart. I really don't get enough sleep, because I have too many other delightful things to do, including reading hubs like these and ROFL...

      Voted up and amusing!

      I'm sleep-deprived again. I was up late last night, messaging a sick friend.

      I came back to read your Hub another time, hoping my own laughter would wake me up.

      You truly are the *List Diva* of HubPages.

      Cute hub!

      The slipper one reminds me of a time when I was working 2 jobs and was drop dead exhausted. A coworker from one job called to ask a question when I was asleep and I had an entire incoherent conversation with the person and did not even recall it. Needless to say, I was the butt of several jokes for that one.

      Haha, I love your great humor and this list gave me so many funny pictures in my head:) The things we do.. I remember one morning after I had left my daughter to preschool and found myself sitting in the driver's seat of a car that was not mine! When I looked around in the car and realized it wasn't my car I felt so ashamed and jumped out of that car in a hurry. So embarrassing! Thanks for the laugh Linda!

      Take care
