    My brain is usually feels fried if I don't get enough sleep, lol. Sometimes I just feel hungover. But mostly I'm just irritable and snappy.

    Hi OP just wanted to say it doesn't matter if u have kids or not. I remember many times before having DS when I would cry just out of sheer exhaustion from what seemed like 'no reason'

    Hope u get some rest soon

    I turn into a person I hardly recognise.

    I can cry hysterically at the drop of a hat, become enraged over the most trivial thing and become incredibly pessimistic and irrational. I develop eye-watering headaches, I feel ill when I eat, I become dizzy and I get the shakes.

    At my worst, I've felt all of these things ( a week or more of 2-3 hours of broken sleep). On better nights (4-5 hours of broken sleep) I might feel one or two of these things but find it easier to take control of.

    Sleep deprivation is a b***h. Please take advantage of your kid less status to be kind to yourself and catch up on some precious z's. Good luck!

    My pmdd causes me to do that for about a week every month. Not sure if yours is particularly related to sleep or not. Wouldnt hurt to have a doc run a test on ur hormone panels to make sure theyre where they should be

    I suffer from depression and anxiety. When I'm tired it makes matters worse. Add new pregnancy hormones to the mix, and I can now tear up at the stupidest stuff!

    Personally, IMO if you are crying that frequently from feeling tired and emotionally drained, I would have a chat to your doctor.

    I studied the mental effects of sleep deprivation/lack of sleep during one of my uni courses. It's actually really amazing how much it can affect a person both physically and mentally. Feeling weepy, moody, irritable and depressed are very common side-effects.

    When I don't get much sleep (usually baby related), I will burst into tears randomly, snap at people and become confused easily. Physically, I get bloodshot eyes, huge bags under my eyes, headaches and my skin appears paler than usual. I've also experienced hallucinations from getting only 2-3 hours a night for long periods of time.

    I start feeling extremely sick if i dont get much sleep. Next week i am starting myself on going to bed at 9pm(except monday nights as my fav tv show is on) to get myself into a better mind frame as i know i will struggle with school runs in the mornings when it starts.

    When i feel sleep deprived not only do i feel sick but i cant physically do anything including general house work.
