    All my life slept only 4 hrs per night

    Once I reached 50 it wasn't enough

    Was tired by noon

    Went to Doctor

    Got pills

    Feels great

    5-6 hours is usually all I get.

    Too much pain.

    Sounds like people need a nap time, except for bb. I sleep ok. Recently started doing the nap thing. I read that it's supposed to be beneficial for the heart. That's my story, anyway.

    I am an excellent sleeper, unless it is a hotel.

    My sleep rhythm is messed up. I go to bed at a reasonable time like 11pm but wake up several times during the night.

    I think the light sleep part of the cycles get too light and that's why I wake up.

    Maybe I drink too much water and get the signal and that wakes me up.

    I started taking a Tylenol PM every night to stay asleep and it works.

    I need the full 8 hours, no more no less or I'm wasted for the day.

    That is all the coffee I drink a day. That's not too much and I don't drink it past 5 pm, so the caffeine is gone by bedtime.

    Dear Friends,

    I appreciate your replies. They are reassuring - sleep seems a fleeting moment in our daily routine of things.

    Thank you.

    i love to sleep!!

    i even got gold stars on my kindergarten report card for "Naps well"


    sleep is the prime indicator for me
    as to how well i am doing....

    went thru a rough patch
    of disturbed sleep patterns....
    saw an acupuncturist
    got an herbal remedy
    called "root the spirit"

    all's well!

    Recently had a sleep study done. Slept for six hours. Woke up @ 150 times during that six hours, or so the sleep study said.

    No sleep apnea. Doctor says it's because I have fibromyalgia and am in chronic pain. He said there's nothing to be done about it.

    It sucks.
