Sleep - have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. I don't stress as much now as I used to when I didn't get enough as I figure I'll make it up the next night.

I rarely have trouble falling asleep, but will wake up after only a few hours, sometimes not being able to get back to sleep. I do have some pretty weird dreams sometimes, and can usually remember them after waking.

I think I need to reintroduce naps to my daily schedule.


It seems ever since Buddy came to live with us I have fallen asleep quicker. He gets us up earlier in the morning so falling asleep easier is a no brainer.



I was interested in the "bright lights on the backs of the knees" theory. I need my clock reset. Sometimes I think I have my days and nights reversed, like some babies.

My sleep patterns are a mess!!! I know it has to affect my health. And yeah, I think this machine could be the culprit.


I don't have a problem going to sleep but I wake up every 3 hours....go to the bathroom...and then go back to sleep. Thank goodness I can go back to sleep. But its rare that I ever sleep the whole night through. Last time I did it was because I took a shot of Nyquil before bed for my cold. LOL I haven't used an alarm clock since menopause. I wake up when I am supposed to get up.....usually 5:30 or 6 a.m. when I work and 9 a.m. when I don't. Go figure THAT one out!! lol


This really hit me today. I need a sleep aid to sleep the night through. Last night I didn't take one and reverted back to my pattern of reading for 20 minutes or so, falling asleep and waking in three hours. After staying in bed for an hour and not falling back to sleep I g0t up, made hot chocolate and got on the computer. I am now getting spacey at 10 am and will probably fall asleep in this chair.

I am not at my best unless I get at least 7 hours. Three hours just won't cut it.

Interesting facts on sleep. Adler had an entirely different take on dreams. Like the 'hereafter', I doubt that anyone really knows why we dream, but I'll go with Adler. He makes sense to me.


"It's impossible to tell if someone is really awake without close medical supervision. People can take cat naps with their eyes open without even being aware of it."

Say,Joy, do you suppose this is what's going on with Kate Gosselin on "Dancing With The Stars?"

I thought she was simply an awful dancer but now I realize she may be taking a cat nap in the middle of her number. You think?


I was such a sound sleeper, always, that I even slept through things like my daughter getting up and using the toilet. My mother, a light sleeper, was surprised that I was not attuned to every night sound.
These days I still sleep pretty soundly, and if I am awakened can go right back to sleep. The only thing I can't deal with is...snoring!


Dear Joy ~~ A good post about sleep
or the lack of. Interesting facts.
I cannot remember the last time I slept right through - usually get up at least twice to the toilet.
Thanks for the comments and glad you liked the pic of Kathy & kids.
I have to go to bed, my eyes won't
stay open. Take care, dear friend,
Love, Merle.

Joy--How interesting! I have never been a good sleeper and am one who hasn't set an alarm clock since 1976. (I hate being awakened by a buzzer!)
Thanks for all the interesting stuff on sleep/deprivation.

sleep problems are a serious problem that can disrupt and destroy all activities and everyday situations, if someone less sleep then automatically condition the body becomes weaker, less powerful job or activity that causes us to be disturbed, I also have never experienced this disease, more before going to sleep well if you read magazines or watch tv to relax, so the eyes become tired and can sleep quickly, actually many, many ways to make people fall asleep
