My parents want me to take a shower, but the only time I can at times is when they're sleeping. They don't want me to do so while they're sleeping because doing so makes it hard for them to sleep. Then, on top of this, when I cook my pizza at 2:00 AM, which is nothing unusual to me, I need to have a light on, something 70 or so feet away from the room and only a 40-watt light bulb enclosed in a yellowish casing is used. I also filter the light by opening a door to block the brunt of it. I can work very well with such little light, but even then, my parents are bothered by it. To add further, even the mere act of going through their room very quietly to use the only accessible bathroom (the other one has a mirror blocking the toilet, one thing I warned them on several years ago not to do) causes them to occasionally get annoyed by it (it's what they get for ignoring my warning). This gets very annoying. Unlike my parents, I can sleep in a huge range of conditions, far broader than they even estimate. Whether it's pure dark or broad daylight with my room's 1500-lumen light on (26-watt compact flourescent, as bright as a 100-watt oridinary light bulb), I can sleep with that without any problems. One can be pounding nails into a wall just 10 feet away and that wouldn't wake me up, not even sanding in an area 30 feet away! Alarm clocks don't wake me up, even just a foot away, one reason they are otherwise useless to me. I can even sleep when it's 60??F or 85??F in my room! I'm not sure why my parents couldn't even sleep anywhere near as broad as I'm able to. Maybe it's my extreme resistance to various things? Just recently, my dad was pounding nails in the bathroom I cannot use and when I woke up, he told me he was at it for 2 hours (or something like that), and that's just 6 feet past my doorway!"
