    This is like the 3rd nite/morning? in a row that I've gotten 1-2 hrs sleep max. I swear to god I've been an insomniac my whole entire lifetime!!
    I'm sure all the cigs and coffee I have late night are a big help.
    My boyfriend and I are on opposite schedules. He goes to bed at 9pm.
    And it's not like I can't get to sleep--I just can't lie down.
    Huh.
    Just thought I'd share that...

    Sorry about that hun. I do the same thing... restless... Drives my husband nuts! Or... I wake up like a shot at 4:30 am, and there's no going back to sleep. Hate it when that happens.

    well, the first thing i'd do would get off the coffee! you know what caffeine does. instead of coffee, you should have yourself a nightcap or something. alcohol usually gets you to sleep. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    and cigs are bad for you anyway.

    Aaaaactually, alchohol probably isn't the best thing either. It prevents deep, REM type sleep. And give yourself 6 hours between your last cup of coffee and bedtime.

    I don't drink coffee, and I don't smoke. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    What's wrong with me! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    seenbad's right about the alcohol. [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Vigorous exercise a few hours before be usually does me in.

    The early morning wake-up is a pain. For almost 20 months I woke up at 4:07 AM or 4:37 AM every morning, except Sundays. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] Now it's more like 5:30 6:00. MUCH more tolerable, but I still don't know why...

    Betty, I know what you feel like though. Sorry. Hope you can sleep better tonight. [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    deep sleep and REM sleep are different. so i'm confused.
    and yes, i didn't mean getting drunk, i just meant a glass of wine or brandy or scotch or something. [img]smile.gif[/img] if you were also talking about just a glass, then shit, i should probably stop that too!

    Actually, thats probably why your confused. REM (rapid eye movement) is the deepest form of sleep. Or the when REM occurs, it indicates the deepest kind of sleep is occuring. Alchohol can limit that, or eliminate it. After time, it can be very unhealthy because that is also the bodies busiest time for replinishment and rejuvination (healing). Thats one reason heavy drinkers age more quickly.

    You gotta study this stuff if you wanna be a good drunk. [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    i always heard that REM was the shallow sleep, and the sleep that you remember your dreams more vividly. that's why you move your eyes. i've always heard that. i'll look it up though.

    Almost exactly 24 hrs later, and I'M STILL AWAKE [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]
    Kidding...I went to bed at 6am, slept all day and woke up at 4pm. I've gone completely nocturnal. Oh dear.
    I'm not that keen on alcohol, so the pre-bed nightcap is not an option.
    Sex is actually the best sleeping pill, but like I said last nite, my bf and I are on opposite schedules. I'm sure I'll get some o' dat soon, cuz if I don't, I'll go mad/blind...lol
