I don't particularly like to sleep myself. I tend to stay up until 2 or 3 reading, watching tv, surfing, whatever. But sometimes it's channel surfing or waiting for the next new post on the various forums. That's when I know I'm bored and should just go to bed, but I have a hard time doing it. I don't know if it's left over from the nearly 30 years of weird hours and broken sleep patterns or what. I sleep like a dog when I do go to bed. Luckily I get by with about 6 hours of sleep and DW gets about 10, so our wake up times are pretty even. Sometimes I wonder if it's just a need to have some time to myself. I love DW and we have a lot of fun, but we're together most of the time. Staying up gives me some alone time, even if I waste it talking to y'all. Any of that sound familiar to you, The Fed?

Fed, go to bed.

Lack of sleep can destroy reflexes and thought as effectivly as alcohol.

Are you working exhausted? Would you let yourself or an employee show up after a couple of shots?

Are you driving exhausted? Really? Would you put your kids in the car and go driving after a few shots?

Go to bed.
First, turn off the TV about 45 min to an hour before.
Take a relaxing shower.
Darken the room.
It will take some time to re-set your timer, but do it.

ta,
mew

What mews said. Also, thefed, get your thyroid function tested. Maybe you have hyperthyroidism. Or an anxiety disorder. Anyhooo....repeat after me: greed sleep is GOOD.
