Yes, it's a control thing when you're having a bad day.
On Wednesday, I refused to have a shower, even though I had been out in the hot all day, refused to go to the bathroom for 5 hours even though I had a ton of water, and refused to go to bed even though it was 11:30 pm and I had been up nonstop since 4:40 in the morning.
I suppose it's better than emotionally eating, which I never do..but it is the same kind of control I think.
This has happened to me a lot - particularly since my husband died very suddenly a few months ago. With me it is increased Depression along with the knowledge that my hubby isn't in bed, too, and never will be any more, and I miss him.
Maybe there is something causing stress in your life, too? Some people don't realize that they are even feeling stressed/anxious or depressed.
If it continues I would be inclined to make an appointment with your Dr and check the various avenues it could be - medical or emotional.
Good luck, Kris

I should have gone to sleep hours ago, but I am fighting sleep and watching tv while playing on the Internet. Does anyone else ever act against their own interest this way?
I am feeling anxious and sleepy and the ambivalent feelings are winning. I should drop the emotions I can not label and leave that for tomorrow. Probably I will feel better after sleep, so why do I not just go to sleep?
Can anyone relate to this?
My husband thinks I avoid sleep because I am not excited about tomorrow and it feels like a rebellion against time moving to tomorrow by putting off tonight.
