I haven't slept all night for as long as I can remember. I had a sleep study done last year and the results are shocking. I have counted up to fifteen awake sessions but the study showed many times more than that. I would love to sleep all night through and awake rested. :cry:

Most nights I wake 3 or 4 times a night and have a hard time getting back to sleep. The worst thing that happens is when I sit straight up and wake hubby telling him he is late for work, and he still has about 4 more hours till it's time to get up.
Some days right after lunch if I sit down I'll just fall asleep and have no idea how long I slept, but my iron levels are so low that I just feel so wore out :thumbdown:

some nights are better than others. Last night it was 3 am, the night before midnight. I always wake up twice to gp to the bathroom regardless what time I go to bed. I guess the days of sleeping 7 or 8 hours a night are over.

I don't sleep as much as I used to, 6 or 7 hours a night are usually enough and I don't nap or I have a hard time falling asleep. I have a new twist in my sleep pattern, I wake myself up snoring! Good grief my husband and son both snored for years and it didn't bother me at all. When I wake myself up snoring it gets my heart a pounding and it takes a while to go back to sleep. As if menopause isn't bad enough! :oops:

When I went to my six week check up after my first child and the doctor asked me how I was feeling, I told him, pretty good, but I wish I had a good night's sleep. He laughed and said I wouldn't get that for 21 years. Well, my son just turned 42, and I have yet to ge a good nigt's sleep. Now that my kids are all grown and out of the house, I am starting with grandkids.

Then of course, my night life is so exciting, anyway. Go to bed with Ben(gay), visit(the) John several times during the night, Charly (horses) keeps waking me up, then I wake up with Art(thritis).

Ditto!!!! I usually get my best sleep during the day. When I lay down for a nap, I usually sleep 4-5 hours. Seems like I wake up during the night, every 2 hours.

I'm 54, a night shift nurse, I'm always up at night when I off work. Been on nights for over 17 years so that is my daytime. I do sleep alot during the day alot but on my days off I try to switch to a day shift mode. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don't.........

For some reason, I don't sleep more than 6 hours at a time. Sometimes, my cat insists that I get up by walking back and forth across my stomach until I wake up. What's that about? He has food in his bowl, and a litter box, so it's not like he needs me to do anything for him. A lot of times, I fall asleep in the chair in the living room in front of the TV, for a couple of hours at a time. I just don't sleep well.
