RE: The Sleep Thread
Sleep is weird for me. If I get exactly 5 hours, I feel great. If I get 4 or 6, though, I feel like I want to pass out all day.

If left to sleep on a normal day, though, I'll get 8-9 hours. However, if I've worked out, I'll sleep for 10-11 hours that night.

What I hate is getting 12 hours straight; then feeling drowsy and tired for the rest of the day. Over-sleep is a bitch.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.

RE: The Sleep Thread
Cheers, Misa, for bumping this thread... saves me searching for it.

I've just slept away my Saturday.
I got home from KL around 1am, unpacked, zonked out, on the bed, still clothed.
Woke around 11am. Thought about getting food then crashed again.
Awoke again not long ago (9pm) with my mind engaged in calculating whether I was going to make it back to Singapore from England by Monday morning. Even now I am semi-conscious, I'm still thinking about flight times and connections and wondering if I anyone would notice if I went straight to work from the airport without having a shower first.

I haven't eaten since Thursday evening.

Trippy!

So it seems that after being insomnia free for about. 8 months, it's back.

I dread going to bed because I fear I'm not going to sleep. Then I wake up early, usually after not having slept all night. Ugh. I hate being tired when I wake up.

Alas, that is the root of the problem. So to speak.

Insomnia is not a serious problem. Don't lose any sleep over it.Drinking Beverage

RE: The Sleep Thread
I oversleep almost everyday... it can be quite annoying sometimes, but I'd rather that than not being able to sleep.

RE: The Sleep Thread
My sleep has changed a lot.
I have always been a night person and that hasn't changed. I can function with sleeping at night and being up at day but even if I force that on me I am tired all day anyway and wake up when the sun is down since hours.

Also I have always been a person that sleeps very long. 9 hours are my average when I can how I want. I function with 8 hours but under 8 hours I am a zombie.

I used to be different. I used to have a rule that if can't sleep 2 hours I stay up. Can't do that anymore.

Also, I forgot who posted the thing about the 8 hours sleep a night is incorrect... But I agree on that very much. Every person is different. It depends on your life style and age and genes. There are people who are fine with 5 hours a night, and other, like me, need double that.
