    I can't sleep.
    It's strange 'cause I didn't drink coffee and I haven't eaten heavy.

    The fridge is noisy and I'm thinking that it's too big for my needs, I don't buy enough food to fill it and it's a waste of energy. It came with the studio, I wouldn't have bought it like this. It's probably small in American standards, actually. I was in an Airbnb 18 months ago, in White Plains. Puertorican host. Her fridge was even larger, with the water and ice distributors as well...

    You can only write between midnight and 6 am in this thread. Your time zone.
    But I wish you to be able to sleep instead.

    Or maybe TROS :p


    I may very well end up here in three hours or so.

    My sympathies to all of you [:D]

    I'm the wrong guy to ask about this. For several years, in addition to my full-time job, I worked part-time on weekends as an overnight radio announcer. As a result, my sleep patterns have been jumbled. And my work schedules have jumbled up my meal schedules. So, basically, I eat when I'm hungry, I drink when I'm thirsty, and I sleep when I'm tired. Maybe when I retire I can get back to something remotely resembling a normal routine. Now, the only time I can approach one is when I'm staying at my Mom's place in the country, away from distractions.

    @Kenneth Morgan
    What do you think about the concept of sleeping several times per day rather than just one?

    I’ve been waking up 2-3 times a night lately. I’m not sure why, but it leaves me very tired. :(

    As expected, here I am.

    I feel lonely a lot during the day, and so this place helps me feel companionship. Even then, sometimes I still feel isolated.

    How is everyone?

    I do. I grab a nap when I can.

    I'm OK in general. I'm watching a first season episode of "Mission: Impossible". Martin Landau is getting ready to cheat Nehemiah Persoff at cards.

    I think I successfully went ahead for 3 straight hours, then I must have dreamt something scary.
    I'll drink some water.

    I went to bed at 9:30 to recover for last night. I find myself awake at 4:20.

    Not sure whether I should just get up and do something or wait for the sleepiness to come back.

    I think it’s gotten a lot worse for me. Yesterday I couldn’t sleep until 6 this is probably just because there are a lot more things to be anxious about in my life. I am sure once my mom is recovered I’ll get back to normalish sleep pattern.

    One thing that helps me is limiting my exposure to blue light (screens) for at least an hour or so before bed. Once I go offline for the day I read (book - not Kindle or other device) and listen to the radio for awhile. I also don't check a device if I happen to wake up during the night.

    I get up and eat something, which is why I have a bagel in my mouth as I type (1.21am here).

    5:15 is a complicated time. Too early to get up, but if I try to restart sleeping it will be interrupted in the wrong moment.

    At last, I meet the specifications for posting in this thread!:p

    It's 3:07 a.m. here. Went to bed around 10:00, with plans to get up at 4:00 (have an extra-lot to accomplish today). Unfortunately I woke up sometime around 1:30, started thinking about everything I have to do this week (plus some serious issues some family members are going through right now) and couldn't get back to sleep. Stupidly ignored one of the main pieces of advice for dealing with insomnia: if you can't get back to sleep in 15 or 20 minutes, get up to read or some quiet non-screen activity). Instead, laid in bed for 1.5 hours just thinking. Now getting up to start my day with the stuff I had been planning to start at 4:00. *sigh* I will be a zombie by this afternoon...need to start an IV drip of espresso stat i guess:p

    anyway, I also just wanted to say hello to @3sm1r . ( I enjoy your posts in the Politics thread:D)

    Good luck to my fellow insomniacs everywhere! (lurking or otherwise:p)
