I’m writing this post because it’s been brought up by many of my friends and family members. Yes, I’m 23 years old. I am at the age where I am suppose to handle anything, and have loads of energy. Yes, I am a mother of a 3 year old; but he doesn’t wear me down.
On Tuesday, my guild in World of Warcraft created a 25 man raid. So what, right? Well, I missed that raid. Why? Because I fell asleep. At this point, you’re thinking “Oh I’ve done that before.” or “There’s always next week.” Here’s the thing. It happens 80 percent of the time. I get at least eight hours of sleep every day. When Tuesday and Wednesday comes around, I crash and get about 12 hours of sleep. My husband tries to wake me up, but I never get up.
I have tried to take one hour naps during the rest of the week; thinking I’m not getting enough sleep. It didn’t work. I have tried (and still) taking multi-vitamins and drinking lots of water; but I am always tired. Every time I talk to someone in-game and ask how I’m doing, and I respond with “I’m tired, but good.” Then they reply back with “You’re always tired.” One of the raid leaders actually told me to get a check up with my doctor. I kind of brushed it off. Until Oestrus from the Stories Of O replied to my tweet: “Darn it! I fell asleep and missed my guild’s 25m again! Ugh…” with “How many times has that happened? Are you OK?” It kind of opened my eyes a bit, so next week I am making an appointment with my doctor.
On a different topic…
Even though I wasn’t there on Tuesday for my guild’s 25 man, I did make it to Wednesday’s. Apparently, my guild didn’t kill any bosses in Firelands, because they were short of people; but they did do Baradin Hold. On Wednesday, we were short on people again, but we cleared up to Major Domo. We did Heroic Shannox on Heroic and I lost my Tier legs to a warlock friend. The healing trinket that I wanted off of Alyrazor didn’t drop, but I got the DPS trinket off of Baleroc for my Shadow set. Today, I am suppose to do a 10 man Firelands raid with alts, and I’m hoping to heal on my Shaman. I was able to do a Firelands alt raid on my Shaman last week, and we cleared up to Alyrazor before calling it.
