Sleepless Nights

Sleep eludes me these days.

And it is getting more frequent.

Lately, I can only sleep for 3-4 hours a day.

And every disturbing noise can easily wake me up.

I remembered 10 years ago I could sleep 8 hours in one stretch with loud music and noises around.

And 5 years ago it was 12 p.m. to 6 a.m.

And now 12 p.m. to 3.30 a.m.

Is it because of the age?

But I do have very nice sleep.

And I feel really refreshed after that.

But the duration of my sleep sometimes make me worry.

Does it happen to everyone?

Do you wake up very early frequently wondering what to do next?

I just hope it is alright.

I did ask some of my friends and colleagues.

Many of them enjoy 6-8 hours sleep a day.

Quite a few have 1-2 hours sleep a day.

Is it normal?

I try to make up for it by taking a 20-minutes sleep every afternoon.

I think it should be okay.

I hope I wouldn't have 24 hours no sleep

..... or 72 hours no sleep.

It will be horrible.

Ho...sleepless nights worry me...

You may be having sleep apnea. You should check it out. My husband wakes up a lot every night too. That's why I thought maybe that's what you are having.

I agree with the first comment - this sounds a lot like sleep apnea. Can you find a sleep specialist to meet with to discuss this?

Think less and you will have less worry. Less worry help you to have more sleep.
