    Insomnia

    I have the type of insomnia where I usually get to sleep within an hour or so of going to bed,
    but then wake up at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning and can't get back to sleep. I hate it!

    I like to do math problems when I can't sleep. Those really knock my brain out like that

    Sleep is not my friend and it gets worse as I get older.

    I don't know whether I have insomnia or a really messed up sleep cycle but basically, I've been waking up at 2 o clock recently.

    Here are some interesting sleep related links.

    "We often worry about lying awake in the middle of the night - but it could be good for you. A growing body of evidence from both science and history suggests that the eight-hour sleep may be unnatural."

    "Loneliness is not only heartbreaking, it breaks up a normal night's sleep, a new study shows. Researchers say compromised sleep may be one pathway by which feelings of loneliness adversely affect our health."

    "When violence shatters a child's world, the torment can continue into their sleep, according to researchers in Cleveland. The impact is measurable and affected by the severity of the violence, and the effects can last over time."

    I'm not sure if I have insomnia or not. It takes me a good hour or so to fall asleep after settling down for the day and I always have racing thoughts in my head about what to wear the next day, and then I have to wake up early in the morning in order to make sure I have enough time to get ready so I haven't been sleeping much.

    I have insomnia every night.

    I usually stay up and work on things, but it is frustrating to be awake, when everyone else in the house is asleep.

    I've had insomnia for practically my entire adult life. It can play havoc on my concentration. I've learned to get by with a few hours of sleep a night and have tried a ton of remedies. Even if I manage to get to sleep, I'm awake after a couple of hours. So yeah, I hear you about having trouble.

    I'm always so envious of people who fall asleep the minute their head hits the pillow. I can't even remember what that feels like to be honest. I usually stay up till 4 or 5 in the morning and then wake up at 9. The entire day is exhausting after that.

    How does one go back to sleep after waking? I just get 1 or 2 hours sleep max, then I'm up again. Just took a sleep aide. Took 2 before I went to bed. I know they wear off after awhile and that's why I don't take them regularly. Can get too used to them and they eventually don't work.

    What is it with my brain? I'm getting up in 3 hours and I need to sleep at least till then.

    Insomnia is weird, I can't stay asleep, but fall asleep with relative ease. It would be nice to be able to sleep longer than 3-4 hours.
