Re: Sleep/Non-Sleep |
Sally, I don't have trouble sleeping as a rule, however depending on what is going on in my life I may wake up at 3 am unable to go back to sleep until 6 or so. I hate that, because I don't like to get up late.
Hasn't happened lately though and I hope I can keep it that way.

It is a rare occasion when I don't sleep well all night long. I don't nap much during the day, but even when I do, I still sleep. Of course, I don't go to bed with the chickens, either. If I have trouble sleeping, it is normally caused by some event (or concern about something) - nothing I could ever attribute to BEB.

Wow!! I guess I am really among the minority. I can sleep whenever. I blame it on the fact that I struggle so hard to keep my eyes open. When my shots are running out, which is now, I seem to be able to sleep alot more. I take at least a half hour nap and then get about 8 to 9 hours at night. I sleep sound too. Wednesday is my next Botox and I am ready. It has been a long week. Who would think we would look forward to shots!!!!

Re: gardens and washcloths
Ann, I must have "slept" through that one. People just try to get me stirred up! Actually, I was going to let this one slide by unnoticed so that she wouldn't think that I was always picking on her. I think that she gets a kick out it, though.
Did you see where she told us once again how Carl always brings her a warm washcloth every morning? Heck of a life she leads-botanical garden trips, volunteer work looking at plants and flowers, watching her lettuce grow (Bob probably is jealous), browsing through her horticultural magazines and just trying to decide what to plant next. Yet, she is always available to answer our toughest questions unless, of course, she is on another tour. :-)
I got to tell you, if Roy ever brought me a warm washcloth in the morning---oh, never mind. We won't go there.

Sally - Glad to say that I don't have problems with sleeping. I sleep soundly about 6-7 hrs. every night. I find that I feel better if I set the alarm and get up by 6:30. I usually stay on my fet most of the day, or try to keep busy, though,,,If I sit and watch the news, or read, which are sometimes very difficult of course, with the eyes, I can easily nod off for an hour! And I don't like to "waste the time", but I guess the rest is good for me. When I started taking Calcium tablets, by daughter-in-law, a nurse, told me to take them at night, and they would help me sleep-I guess it works! When I was trying to find out (for 8-10 yrs') why my eyes wouldn't stay open, a psychiatrist (yes, of course I was sent to a shrink!) told me that if you wake up too early, it's usually a sign of anxiety. Duh!! I was waking up every morning at 3-4 o'clock. If you can't get to sleep at night, it could be depression. Mary
I'm relieved to hear that there are other "sleepers" in the bunch. I was beginning to feel I must have missed out on some important "symptom" because I can sleep at night!
Sally in Idaho, wishing all of you a pleasant sleep tonight.
