No, he gets mad when I don't go to bed.  He has no trouble sleeping so he doesn't understand not being able to.

How much sleep do you get a day, on average? Just past 1 a.m. where you live?

The last week or so maybe 3 hours.  I've taken some cold medicine so I'm hoping that will knock me out, and hopefully very soon.  I have 7:30am appointment and I'd like to have more than 3 hours sleep.

I won't got to bed until my eyes are drooping.  Hubby is a light sleeper and I don't want to wake him with my tossing and turning, sooooo...I'm just hanging out here and there in TNS, cuddling with my sweet little Benjamin, and waiting for the medicine to work so I can breathe and sleep.

My husband was always very unsupportive about my bouts of insomnia until he suddenly had a bout of it himself. He found out it was from going to the gym at 9.00pm at night. He then discovered just how annoying it is to have a snoring bedfellow when you can't sleep. HA!

I keep wishing it on him so he'll become a little more sympathetic...but so far, no luck.  I'm stuck with him being a jack ass on this issue. [:(!]

Nope Just signed out tried to sleep no avail.. so I have been trying to hook my computer up to a wireless router which is kicking my butt! I installed the wireless card to my computer and my daughter installed the router to her computer in  the back bedroom where she has just moved in so she is on the main computer line but my computer and wireless card are asking me for a passphrase  for the netgear router.. On the router end the password was there and we used that one but it still sucks and is not working and now I am just mad and tired! LOL..

I just stumbled across this thread and I thought: Wow, 50 pages of support for people who cannot sleep! I shall look to see if there is something for my mild case." Read the first page. Looks great. Read he 50th page. Looks like you are keeping each other up! I have to read more pages some other time.

When I cannot sleep I listen to talk radio. International news. Might as well do something educational. BTW, techno music works wonders for me as well. Super relaxing. Although it does the complete opposite to all other people. But it does not work when I wake up in the middle of the night.

Anyhow, nothing important written here. Just ignore this. Go catch some sleep! [;)]

Well...I am working on 72 hous on 4 hours of sleep.....I am whipped...going to try again soon.. feel like crud...loosing track of time.....that is so weird when I get tired..like this..I have to look out the windows to remember if it is AM or PM. get my meds screwed up... did I take them or not... go look nope missed 3 doses...not good! That may be a problem with the water...and blood pressure....

Well hoping tonight will be good for sleep. I really need some...My skin on my head feels like its going to sleep..and my face...feels all tingly.

 I have been watching.. several of the diffeent bariatric surgeries..... Worries me... they seem so Dangerous.....
 I need to keep trying... it is so hard anymore to get the weight off.   This last Doctor for Social security told me..."It has nothing to do with exercise just portion control!" Well That's not how I feel... I need to do both to feel better and gain strength.

Oh well....  hope you all are sleeping and snoring like  crazy! Well no snoring would be more restful eh..I snore when I am sick with a chest or head cold!
Do you all snore?
