Insomnia

Why do I wake up in the middle of the night...only to start thinking about all the things that need to be done or all the things I haven't done but should or all the people I should pray for or why I haven't gotten a babysitter yet or ...it's not like I can fix these things at 2:29am! Sleep sweet sleep please come quickly! Does anyone else have this problem? I have NO problem falling asleep at night...just staying asleep. Once I'm up, it's at least another hour or two before I fall asleep again! I'm so tired!

Oh honey, you should have called me... I was still up!

Jen said...

Yep. And yep. I'm up all hours 'o the night. And I can only get to sleep drugged.

When I'm stressed or anxious about something, I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. Lately, I just wake up at 5:30 or 6:00 and am up. I usually pray - not about everything, everyone, and their brother - but about the specific thing I'm stressing over. And I ask God to help me to give my anxiety over to Him and let me sleep.

only when i'm pregnant and it drives me bananas. Does this happen every night?

Mommy Brain said...

4-5 nights of the week, yes! Not always I go in spurts...I guess it's when something or too many things are on my min.

Yes, it happens to me ALL THE TIME! I HATE it! I love sleep so much... maybe too much, but that's another story. Maybe if I got more sleep I wouldn't love it as much... it's like when I was young and I always was interested in that illusive guy I knew would never ask me out. I know I'll never get the sleep I want, so it is so precious to me! Anyway, I completely know how you feel... have you ever noticed the times of many of my posts? I often blog in the middle of the night... lately, though, my best friend is Benadryl! :-)

Count me in, too. I have severe insomnia & have for 20 years. It's awful - especially for someone who loves her bed & lovesssssssss to sleep. Some night, severe nights, I never go to sleep at all. And I take no medication to help (because I take other medications & they might counteract). So my friend, I feel for ya! I know how awful it is! Maybe we should start cleaning while awake....? :)

melissa,
I have the insomnia problem. In fact hot momma often "yells" (not really) at me because I haven't gone to bed the night before! I have done the cleaning thing while I'm awake, but now that I'm blogging, I just do that!

I have the same problem.. I soemtimes use my radio to help me go back to sleep.. There are some pretty bizzar radio shows on at 3:00 AM Yes falling asleep is no problem, just staying asleep is.
