An affliction affecting couch sitters which prevents them going to bed at a reasonable hour. A victim of the strugglies awakens several times in the evening/early morning, realises that they really should go to bed, yet is unable to separate their bodies from the couch and falls asleep again. The strugglies may cause the victim to fixate on a particular task to be accomplsihed before they can go to bed e.g. shutting down the laptop properly, watching the end of a television program or finishing a glass of wine which they have fallen asleep holding. In their semi-conscious state it is not physically possible to complete such tasks, ensuring that the victim falls asleep again for some number of minutes only to partially awaken later and fall victim to the strugglies once more.
I had the strugglies so bad watching Heroes last night that I didn't get off the couch and go to bed until I got woken up by the paper being delivered.
