    Well I didn't have a problem until I went through a break up a couple of weeks ago. Now I'm up on the computer at 1:00 a.m. Maybe someday I'll get back to normal.

    Yea, I don't sleep day or night. Last night I was still awake at 5:30am! I finally got to sleep only to wake up at 6:30. Went back to sleep at 7, woke up at 7:45. Kept this up 'til 9:30 and gave up! At least I don't drive for a living anymore. I was doing this when I was working the early shift (not all the time but close to half of the time) and I had to hit the caffiene hard to stay alert! It's getting so bad I hate getting into bed. It seems I'm nice and sleepy 'til I lay down in bed then whoops! I'm wide awake! I think my bed hates me (that's the lack of sleep talking). I get up again to make myself sleepy and when I lay down again it's the same thing. On the plus side I do get some awesomely creative ideas for all sorts of things. Now if I could only get some rest I'd have some energy to implement some of them. [​IMG]

    I've gotten my days and nights goofed up. It's quite often I'm up till 3, sometimes 4, in the morning, then I get up at 6 to get my son on the bus. Sometimes I go back to bed, sometimes I don't. It doesn't really seem to matter either way.

    Last night I was up till at least 4, got up at 6, and layed down till about 9:30 (from 7-9:30). It's now 1:30 am, and I'm still up. Hopefully I can get straightened back out again [​IMG]

    I've been crazy about staying up late since age 11. I'm in late 30's now. In recent months I've gotten to bed between 9 & 11:30 a few times. GREAT progress!
  7. I dont remember when the last time I had a good night sleep. Im on the computer taking care of my AVON orders until who knows what time, still up at 6am to get the kids off. SOmetimes I go back to sleep, most times...I do not.

    I'm sure I am not the only one who has this problem but I started staying up a bit after everyone(5 kids and dh) was down for some 'me time'. [​IMG] Well that was all well and good, very relaxing ,but then when I am ready to go to bed (around 2) I can't because my mind races and there are a million things that are going through it at once. Darn ADD.....[​IMG] So thank God for late night chat friends. [​IMG] I usually get to bed around 4 now and get up at 8. lol....[​IMG] I know that will catch up with me eventually but for the time being it works.
  9. I go to sleep real well, but if anything wakes me up, then I am tossing and turning for hours. I did it last night too, and now I am sooooooooooooooooooooo sleepy, but too much to do. Might take a little nappy at 1:00. That will last until bedtime. The later I go to bed helps, but then I still feel drained when I get up. Melatonin is good to try; its safe and will relax you to that sleepy time feeling. Too much though, and you wake up like you have a hang over. I have never had a hang over, so just repeating what I was told. It's cheap too, get mine at Wal-Mart. I give it to our 9 year old DS. He has trouble falling asleep, not staying asleep.
