:question: Does anyone have a sleeping problem where they wake up at the same time every night and can't fall back asleep for like an hour?

I wake up at 4:00am every night and have to read a book for an hour in order to fall back asleep. It blows I wake up the next morning and feel like I got no sleep what so ever. My doctor gave me this meletonin shit to help me sleep but i haven't used it yet. I use nightquil right now, since i am sick, to help me fall asleep.

ugh. it's so odd.. i always feel constantly exhausted for some reason. like i stay up pretty late a lot of the time just because i can't bring myself to actually go to sleep. but when i do, it usually takes an hour or so but i eventually get to sleep. and even with my late night habits i've still been able to get like 9 hours of sleep sometimes, which is what im supposed to be getting...
i have the energy to do regular stuff and sometimes more than regular stuff, but like i said, i still have this feeling of exhaustion lurking all the time. i don't bother to see my doctor because it's really not affecting my everyday chores. maybe it has to do with the fact that i haven't actually gotten a checkup in years. i really don't know.
you know what else is weird?? ever since 9/11, practically anytime i look at the clock, it's something 11. and this isn't just every now and then.. this is almost all the fuckin time. even when i glance over at my cd player or something and it's got the timer going, i'll look at it just as it's about to hit, say 3:11.
okay this was longer than it had to be. i really can't offer you any advice, but then again you just asked if anyone else had sleeping problems.. of sorts.. er.. i don't know any good way to end this soo... END

well see i do feel remorse for the innocent lives lost.. but i really don't feel THAT strongly about it. not to offend anyone, i just think i would have had to live near there, or have known someone who died there or something to have really gotten the full effects. maybe i do feel some sort of extreme sorrow about it subconciously or something, but as far as i know now.. it's just some fuckin weird thing that happens like every other weird thing about me

you should use the melatonin. it is a pretty safe and non-addictive drug that your brain is low on and that is why you can not sleep.

melatonin is a natural chemical that your body manufactures. it is a hormone that creates you sleeping pattern.

Yeah I probably should take it, but i'm I big believer in finding another solution besides taking pills and drugs. I know it is natural but it still bugs me that i need pills to help me sleep. My big motto in life is that sleep is for the weak its a good way to dodge admitting that I can't sleep, but oh well. I guess I will try the meds and see if they work I guess i'll keep everyone updated. Thats guessing that you give a crap(which you probably don't since no one knows who i am) :confused: .

i keep falling asleep when i can't stay up any longer...which is about 1am or 2am
then i wake up 4 hours later and can't go back to sleep..seriously
i do this every single day




sometimes wut works is taking benadryl allergy capsules..clears my allergies, and puts u to sleep within like 7 min. for me....and in the 7 min. i'll crawl upstairs with last energy, bang head into wall a couple times to clear headaches
and then hopefully wake up more than 4 hours later...5 hours would be nice :thumbsup:
