Still working on getting to bed earlier. I am definitely going to make the 1:00am mark tonight, but need to get to before midnight before Monday so I can wake up at 6:15am.

For some reason, I'm waking up every hour on the hour tonight. I just can't win for losing it seems. I got "caught up" by taking the day off to rest/sleep, and now I'm behind again because I've been wakeful all night. Phooey!

Being awake because you noodled around and now have to pull an all-nighter does not count as insomnia, darling dear. Get yourself over to one of the many procrastinators' threads... after you get whatever it is done. ;)

I'm glad no one has been sleepless since December. Unfortunately, I might as well break that trend. It's 5:03 am here, been up since 2:45. Tried resting, nope.

So, among the other horrendous side-effects of Prednisone, it can cause sleeplessness. Not that I didn't already have trouble sleeping...

okay, so blood work shows I may have thyroid issues which perhaps is why I have such trouble sleeping. Cross your fingers that we get this figured out!

Ugh, not again... At least I didn't get up at 2 a.m. like last time, more like 4 a.m. Stupid anxiety always waking me up. I really need to get some medicinal tests done to see if I'm hypogylcemic, since I've been exhbiting symptoms for a long while now. Plus, I don't want Mom to get any more worried about me than she has to be.

Tried to go to bed earlier than usual (12:30) and it took me 40 minutes to fall asleep, and then my body woke me up at 4:15 and still haven't been able to fall back asleep. Have to be up in two hours. :(

Yurgh. Have you ever tried Midnite tablets? I'm not entirely convinced that their effect isn't psychosomatic, but they seem to help when my body is taking forever to fall asleep, and they don't have the horrible effects that diphenhydramine does on my body.

This is the second time in less than a week that I've pretty much collapsed in exhaustion around six, woken up a few hours later only to lay awake in bed far later into the night than I would like. Not cool, body. Not cool.

No, I haven't. Staying asleep isn't usually much of a problem, and can probably be directly related to consumption of caffeine and/or alcohol, it's just sometimes frustrating. Also, keeping my phone too close to my head.

It's almost four here. Went to bed at 10:30 pm, regular time, haven't been able to fall asleep at all. Now I'm up trying to procrastinate the wee hours away. At least it wasn't my anxiety again. I guess I had too much on the mind before trying to go to bed. Never a good idea.

Wide awake at 2am again, now closing in on 3:30. I really wish I could turn my worried mind off. Nothing it comes up with in these hours is productive anyway...
