    ...not just the switch lights, I also have my lamp on the 100w setting - without the shade. I hate the shade. The dull light instantly depresses me.

    It used to just be the switch lights but I started getting the sleep paralysis issues that would plague me when I slept without any lights on. So now I just don't turn the lamp off.

    Just in case anyone was wondering.

    You should definitely get that checked out.

    There are several different entities living under your bed. Trust me.

    Some nights I sleep with the light on, too. I'd be reading in bed, starting to doze off so I put the book down and turn off the light. Then presto bingo as soon as the light is off, I'd be wide awake, tossing and turning. So pick up the book again, turn on the light and start to doze off.

    Repeat.

    So some nights I just sleep with the light on. Don't know if the light relaxes me or not but it does help me sleep occasionally.

    I imagine it can't be very good for your power bill. If it's just needing 'some' light rather than a lot of light maybe get some solar-powered lights. During the day you can place them somewhere where they'd be 'charged' and then at night you can have them where you need them, without having to use electricity all night. Obviously they'd have to be portable so you could keep moving them.
