Insomnia in popular culture
Insomnia has been a featured disorder from many factors such as books and movies. Two cult classics one is a book titled Insomnia written by horror novelist Stephen King and the other is the Robert DeNiro film from 1976 Taxi Driver. There have been 28 songs written and recorded about insomnia and among the artists who recorded a song were Vanessa Carlton, Green Day, Radiohead, and Tenacious D. The most popular film based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel that was a hit about 6 years ago was Fight Club with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt and the lead character was manic insomniac. This seems to be the most common form of sleeping disorder to the tail that movies and songs were made about this problem.
People aren't aware that this is a arduous issue for those who suffer from this. It's not blood to tuck without sleep because it can affect your immune system making you prone to catching things like the flu and colds. Not getting any rest can cause severe disorientation because your conformation wasn't given an opportunity to rest and convalesce.
This is what drove the designer coffee movement up like the sprawl of coffee shops from Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, Seattle's Best, and Caribou Coffee since you had a lot of late nighters consisting of mainly people working in hospitals and college students who had to pull late nighters and cram sessions and needed to stay awake so when coffee wasn't working they bought this over the counter pill called Vivarin which is equal to about 2 cups of coffee when you take the prescribed dosage.
It's usually not a good idea to gate Vivarin because it can interfere with your body's ability to sleep and last normally. You'll find more college students getting sick a lot because they're forcing their bodies to accomplish things that isn't normal like staying up super late and not getting at least 6 hours of sleep. Rest also provides your body's digestive system to prolong which makes up about 70 % of your immune system so it's ideal to sleep when vital and taking short naps also work for a re - energizer to give you a burst of energy that works much better than coffee or caffeine pills.
That can become resistant seeing a lot of coffee drinkers tend to get perfect tired after a certain point and that's due in chunk to the fact that you build up a resistance after having a few cups of coffee or cans of Coke so meaning positive won't keep you awake it will accelerate the rate of how fast you'll start to feel sleepy.
So seeing pop culture idolize such a disorder is unknown unless the matter who wrote the book or penned the song has a problem with it and decided to write or sing about it. The reason for it is unknown, but it's rather interesting since a song can tell a story and the identical of a book, but it's obviously influenced a slew of songs, a few movies and a series of books where the characters are bruised from some kind of sleeping disorder from mild to severe.
