I had a difficult time falling asleep last night - not sure what was going on. I tossed and turned thinking sleep would come, but if it did it was very broken up through the night. Woke up tired, but I'm pushing through my day.

I was tired, in bed and almost alseep when my bf gave me a call at 1 in the morning. Stayed up another hour and a half doing some research for him, and then couldn't fall asleep till 440. Needless to say, it sucked!

We bought a new clock with what we thought chimed a little waltz type song. We put all of the little finials on and set it for the right time. When the hour rolled around this thing donged so loud, you could hear it all over the house. Plus we have another clock that has a more sophisticated dong and has enough sense to stop donging at 10PM and doesn't start until 6AM.Not the new clock, it dongs all night, so needless to say I was awake all night. One of us got to go.

sorry tweety :( I did manage some more sleep the one medication seems to make me really tired, allowing me to fall back to sleep, and taking a narcotic when I wake up eases the pain to let me sleep a little more too. I think I maybe managed four broken hrs. If I am moving and on the pain meds I feel not too bad.

sorry tweety :( I am in so much pain I don't think tonight has much hope, certainly struggled to fall asleep last night. Just learn my prescriptions have expired and because my Dr. pushed back my appointment to a later time, I am not going to get them in a timely fashion :(

I don't know what is worse, being a zombie all the time or struggling to sleep in spite of all the pain waking me up maybe snatched three very broken up hours

So I was able to get to sleep at 10 pm last night, which was Amazing!!! But then I woke up a little before 2 am and couldn't go back to sleep till a little after 6 am. Why can't I get to sleep at a reasonable hour and then stay asleep thru the night??

7.5 hours total, with a 2 hours break at 3:30 am. I'm trying melatonin so I did shoulder and hip shimmies in bed while waiting for it to start working. Probably not the best but I have such a hard time forcing myself to get up in the middle of the night like the sleep gurus say I should emoticon

Slept with my 2 year old grandson last night which was a joy and a no sleep night. Had a king bed and by morning I was inches from falling off. He is a roller but a joy none the less. Definitely the better way to have a sleepless night with such a sweet little guy!!

I Slept Great 8 hours emoticon emoticon


WVAWACKADOO- emoticon , Sorry to hear about your mom, emoticon My Daddy Is 58 and is dying of Cancers, He had a Heart attack in October 2012, so i can sympathize with you, I have struggled with sleep, flashbacks, and nightmares, so my Drs put me on some meds, they knock me out, within 15-20 min of taken them im out cold. i have fibromyalygia with sleep disturbance so when its out of control, my insomnia is Whoa!! i don't take my meds on time and then im all outta whack. I was a med-aide have you tried Tylenol PM for sleep or Zzzquil , just a suggestion or if you have restless legs like i do, i take Klonopin and that also helps with sleep and anxiety, i was taking 2 tabs at bedtime but with all my other meds, i backed down to 1 which is 0.5 mg and it helps me sleep. Hope this helps Good Luck With Your Journey and Sleep emoticon


Best of luck with Sleep to the rest of you Also, Sleep is so important, it determines How your Day will Go and Your Mood, So Much More emoticon May the Angels Of Peace Be With Each One Of You At Your Bedside

I got about 3 hours sleep last night. Tried everything I could think of, but couldn't get to sleep last time I looked at the clock it was 2:30 A.M. then the alarm went off at 5:30 A.M. when we had to get up to get ready for a meeting across the bridge.

This is the day, the LORD has made, let us rejoice & be glad in it!

My husband said I fell asleep around 9. I woke up at 9:45 and that was pretty much how it was the rest of the night. Itried reading my book, that didn't work. I tried crocheting and that didn't work either so I put the TV on and it was dozing off and on the rest of the night.

With my CPAP mask I wake pretty much every hour with dry mouth and have to take water. But I get right back to sleep until I have about 4-5 hours of sleep. It gets me through the day. I suppose.

I am new to this "I can't sleep" group. I am almost 64 & started having sleep problems about a year ago...getting to sleep has always been the worst part...staying asleep was not as big a problem. I've been on 5 mg. of Ambien & sometimes have taken 10 mg./night. A few times I let my Rx run out & oh what a night I had...usually crashed close to 5 A.M. Don't want to think that I am addicted, but I'm concerned that I am. Would love to just get off the stuff all together. I originally started taking it when my Mom was living with us & I was up with her (dementia/Alz) most of the night. She passed away in Dec. & I need to get off the sleeping pills. I guess that I will consult my doctor first & share my concerns with her. Melatonin does not do any good. Thanks for listening & I'm open to suggestions...

I didn't sleep at all last night. For some reason I was cold and couldn't get warm. That is very unlike me. It's usually the opposite. I tried to take a nap this afternoon, but couldn't seem to relax. Maybe tonight will be my lucky night. Ha.
