My new roommates now know of my ridiculous sleep schedule and have been harassing me about it nonstop. Apparently I am an idiot because I only get 4 hours of sleep.

Yes.

i've had just the absolute worst bouts of insomnia the last few weeks

really would prefer not to be prescribed something like ambien because the stuff is scary to me but I just wanna get a solid 8 hours and not just be laying in bed wide awake all night.

Flip-flopping from night owl for work to normie hours on my days off is becoming a real problem since the babies were born. I get the most broken up, fucked sleep on the weekend now. The last year and a half has been BRUTAL and I don’t think I can do it much longer. A lot of the people at work with kids around the same age are all on Provigil to combat this, but I really don’t want to go that route. I always said I’d never go back to working 5 days a week, but I feel like I’m gonna have to or one Saturday morning I’m going to kill us all on our drive to Target.

I kind of wish I had this problem at this point

All I do is sleep, 15 hours a night lately

I don't know if you're looking for advice but you've got to start journaling that shit. That and a no worrying in bed/no staying in bed when you know you won't sleep rule have been big in whatever success I've had with this dumb affliction.

Insomnia Google Search 101 but been helpful for me.

who here deals with waking up too early upon sleeping and not being able to fall back asleep? this shit is ruining me but i think it might just be anxiety showing itself.

Haha I also do keep a sleep journal, but I meant one where you write worries down --- it tricks me into not obsessing over things for at least that night. Journals on journals.

This is that I fuck with. Wake at 2:00-2:30 every morning, 50/50 chance that I'm up for the night.

A few days into doing a sober month and man I forgot what a light/anxious sleeper I am. Got home from my night shift at 5 this morning and just laid awake, brain racing for a couple hours until I fell into a couple fitful hours full of vivid dreams. This could be a tough month

Hey,

I'd thought I would share some tips, that have possibly contributed to me being able to get a decent night sleep after a couple of years of torture.

No alcohol within a few hours of going to bed, well, pretty much consuming anything near my bed time. I'd find that as I struggled to sleep, I'd begin to agonise over even the smallest snack or glass of juice/sparkling water as being the problem.

I got a big dog, a big dog that needs to sleep on our bed and especially on top or next to me. This helps possibly for two reasons, firstly I'm far less anxious and secondly, I can't fucking roll around and submit to my restlessness, because my doggo growls at me. So I just lay there, slightly uncomfortable, hot and in fear of upsetting my dog, but I've been sleeping as good as I ever have.

my sleep is perfectly aligned with anxiety levels. last week was pretty rough and i had a lot of trouble sleeping. i get in the feedback loop of 'cant sleep because i'm stressed' to 'more stressed now that i can't sleep' and so on. i've been taking gravol which is not a great solution but i need something to knock me out. i hate it so much.
