  1. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  2. I just found out that I have mild sleep apnea and wake up 4-5 times an hour. I havent went back to the doctor yet but am hoping that this will help with my sleeping issues Deb
  3. My doctor knows and has prescribed a couple different things for sleep which have not worked but I also have only mentioned it as a second complaint when I have been to the doctor. I just did a sleep study and have mild sleep apnea and will be seeing the doctor again soon. One thing that maybe I do wrong is I will watch tv in bed as I have always fell asleep to the tv so I will end up laying in bed for 6 hours waiting to fall asleep. I know this sounds weird but it seems as if I have forgotten how to fall asleep. I will be almost asleep and then something will pop into my head that will start me to thinking about stuff again. Deb
  4. I do not know if I am happy or sad to see so many people going through this! I will write more later just checking everything out for now. Then there is the social system of doing things during the daytime more than at night which used to irritate me actually. If we are night creatures we are going to sleep "late" and that is unacceptable therefore we are "lazy, good for nothings" and all that rot. I am wondering how others handle their reverse sleep cycle and what they tell others who are living during the daytime, those darn ol' normaloids! Really,.....any comment about this I'd like to read/hear....are you awake at night more than daylight, how did that happen, what do you tell others, what kind of quality lifestyle do you have, are you berated by family for this or that because of living more at night, what do you do at night that you can't do during the day, are you healthy? nurturing blessings here, bravetwilight Hi Bravetwilight I too am caught in the middle of, what did you call it a reverse sleep cycle. As a matter of fact as I write this it is just about 4:30am and I am wide awake. I have always been what you call a night person. Hated getting up in the morning. Actually if I have to get up before 9:00am I get physically sick, no matter how much sleep I get the night before. I have always done best at second shift (3-11pm) jobs. Out of work by 11pm home by 11:30 and in bed by 2:00 or 3:00 am, and then I would sleep until 10:00 or 11:00am and that would give me time to get the day to day tasks done before heading back to work. But lately I have been up later and later and nothing I try helps me fall asleep. I have even taken as many as five otc sleeping pills, and I am still awake all night. I want to sleep and I feel tired but when I go to bed I just lay there as the clock ticks away. I staying up all night so I would be so tired I would fall right to sleep, and that didn't work either. Now I don't even try to sleep until after 7:00am. I figure why fight it. When I was working, family and friends accepted my my nocturnal lifestyle, but since I no longer have a job I hear a lot of comments like, "oh it must be nice to be able to sleep all day." I just respond with 'well I think it would be nice to be able to sleep at night.' As far as quality of life, well lately my life hasn't had much quality. Which may be a big part of my problem. AbbyM
  5. Help, I am going crazy with this. Some nights I wont be able to sleep at all and then others I will fall asleep early for me (1am-3am I am a night person) and then not be able to get up. I missed my nephews birthday party today and I am just sick of it! I am 50 years old with depression and on pain medication . I have always had insomnia but always had to get up to go to work no matter how much sleep i had. now that I am not working I am seeing that when i do go to sleep I do not want to get up. I will wake up but it feels so nice to be sleeping nothing will get me out of bed. I am sorry if this is all over the place and if anyone needs further information I do not mind I just want to be normal again. Thankyou Deb
