How are you sleeping?

It is 04:52 am in Britain, and I am up. I woke up at 12:30 pm. Which is almost entirely different to the last three days.

My sleep cycle is now 100% chaotic. There are no specific timings, no predictable logic, and I often only know I'm going to sleep about ten minutes before I settle down and do so, giving in to my randomised timings.

Part of it's to do with hayfever, I'm sure. Stuff some tissue up your nose and try to sleep. Go on, I dare ya. While you're at it, spray some disinfectant in your eyes and try to close them for an extended period of time. It would seem I sleep only when my great enemy, the summer, says I can. There is more to it, I'm sure of it, I'm just not sure when it began. Maybe that night when my asthma re-emerged and there wasn't anywhere I could get an inhaler until morning, so stayed awake all night to make sure I wouldn't stop breathing in my sleep...

Woah. The words just warped a little. Trying to soldier through to at least 10 PM so I'm in a somewhat decent state for a needs assessment tomorrow is going to be...interesting, to say the least. Expect some strange, strange posts.

So, how's your sleep doing? This is the internet, so I suspect quite a few of us aren't incredibly good with the whole "sleep" thing.

I finally got a schedule of going to bed at 3am and waking up at 11am. However I just gotten over one of my insomnia spells where I'm never sleepy but always tired so having any kind of sleep schedule is welcoming.

Bed at about 6am, up between 2 and 4pm.

Ah, ain't being unemployed great?

Eh. I sleep soundly enough, but I don't get enough. Weekends I sleep in a lot, but that always leads to being unable to sleep at the right time Sunday night, so I don't get enough sleep for work the next morning and that just drags me down the whole week. It's an endless cycle. I could take naps, but every time I've tried it just leaves me unable to sleep later that night.

It's not especially bad, it just leaves me more tired than I'd like to be. I could go to bed earlier on weekdays, but I like staying up to watch the Daily Show and Colbert Report.

Sleep....comes and goes with me.

I have insomnia and I'm very surprised if I get a decent night of sleep without waking up for no reason other than my brain going, "Hey! It's 3:32, I want you to be awake for about an hour! No reason, just for funsies!"

I try to go to bed at a normal time but I'll be damned if that doesn't work out some days.

Sleep and I stopped being on good terms years ago, I usually fall asleep around 1 AM and wake up around 5 AM. As far as I can tell it's a stress thing but I don't have the luxury to slow things down or go seek help, as is I function decently enough without it. I do sometimes miss longer bits of sleep but it's what I manage.

1 am EST probably be asleep around 4 unresolved sexual tension gives me insomnia.

I don't really have any problems with sleep at the moment. As of now, I usually go to bed at 1 or 1:30 A.M. and wake up at 9 or 10 o'clock. My sleeping schedule during college was a bit unruly I must say, so I'm glad I have some consistency in my sleep patterns again.

I have been having 48 hour days for 2 weeks now

Not very well. Take this tonight/this morning for example, I said to myself "Right. After the guys have went off Minecraft, I'll get a drink of juice, maybe read a couple of threads then go to bed. Two attempts at sleep and six hours later, and here we are!"

A mere mortal such as yourself could never hope to understand my techniques!

You just have 3.5 day weeks. Mouesday, Wethday, Friturday, Sunday.

Pretty crappy. My sleeping schedule is WAY out of whack with me being unable to sleep at night, more often than not I find myself waking up pretty late. With the latest being 2 o'clock in the afternoon today. I've been fighting to get it back on track so I don't have to worry about it when school starts up in August. No such luck so far...

a week for me is

mouesday, wethday, friturday, somday, tuednessday, thriday, satunday

and it lasts 336 hours.

I view sleep as either necessary or not. If am unable to sleep at the time, it is because I do not want or do not need sleep because I wish to focus on things. When I sleep...I sleep soundly, comfortably, and with only a light snore if that.

Considering my shifts are not consistent and I find myself pulling the morning, afternoon and graveyard shifts all within the timespan of a week, I don't even have a sleeping pattern anymore.

It's not doing me any favors.

If you call your GP when it isn't open you should be put through to an out of hours service. Usually its in a central place to where you live and they could have gotten you an inhailer.

I go to bed around 6am-ish and wake up around 2:30pm. I lucked out and my boss said they would schedule me for late afternoons. I rarely have to be to work before 4pm.

it is 4:04am right now. I woke up at 11:45-ish after falling asleep at 3am. My sleeping has been all over the place recently. Considering the heat, the fact that I'm awake late at night is a bit of a blessing...

Horrid. I can't sleep when I go to bed at all. I went to bed at 5something AM, woke up at 10 today. Its 3:09 AM, and I'm not tired at all.

2:13 here in Idaho... Unlike Vegas... there isn't shit to do at 2:13.

Depends whether I'm working or not. If I'm at work the next day I try to get to sleep at around ten, to get up at six the following morning. And because I work either two or three days in a row before my next block of days off (shift work) I will try to get an early night that night too. To be honest, that's not hard, since I work twelve hour shifts and I'm pretty damn tired when I get home.

If I'm not working the next day, I usually get to sleep anywhere between ten at night and one in the morning, and will probably wake up somewhere between six and eight. I've never been able to lie in. Even during school holidays and stuff, I'd always be up horribly early in the morning, when everyone else I knew was able to use the holidays for mega-lie-ins. The only real advantage is that it allows me to maintain a fairly regular sleep cycle.

Whats sleep? I'm not sure I understand what this word means.
Oh, is it that moment when sitting at the computer, where I close my eyes and suddenly the sun appears outside? that's always confused me...

Well, on weekdays I go to sleep at like 9pm and wake up at sixish (just so I can get a good nights rest for school (also, my roomate has to get up earlier than that so he goes to bed at 9 as well, aint I just considerate)). But on weekends I stay up to like 11ish but still force myself to get up at like 6 because I have a whole new day that I can spend being free and bored.

Sleep at around 9 AM and get woken up at around 2 PM.

2am-2pm is my sleep pattern right now. It works pretty well, actually.

let's see how my sleep schedule is. I'll start with this past Sunday, considering I can barely remember the past few days (I've pulled 5 all nighters in the past week and a half).

I fell asleep on Sunday at noon, woke up at 6 pm (still Sunday), and fell back asleep at ten pm. I woke up Monday morning at 4:30, I haven't slept yet and it's Tuesday at 5 am.

Well usually go to bed about 23:00-1:00 british time and im up an hour before my shift for work so anywhere from 07:00-09:00. I like to have a good 8 hours sleep before work, i used to function barely off 6.

The trick to me sleeping at the moment is having a toke about 30 minutes before i want to sleep, then i sleep like a rock.

I'm at the point now where i hate my alarm waking me up, so my body wakes up 2 minutes before it goes off so i don't have to hear it.

Most of the time I don't. It's not fun. I make an effort to go to bed before midnight in the hope that I might drop off quickly and get some decent rest. Instead I lie there for an hour or so, doze off, wake up, doze off, wake up, sleep for a little while, wake up. Pattern repeats until I get fed up and get out of bed.

It's been going on for almost a decade now. The doctors have run out of ideas and started suggesting sleeping pills back when I turned eighteen. I don't want to go there though, so I deal with what sleep I get and hope it fixes itself.

Pretty much as always below average. I mean sure I can still get to sleep but at long I still living with my parent I can never get a good night sleep (as in waking up and feeling fully rested).
These days I go to bed at 11.30 but I only fall alseep sometime after 12.30 and at the moment I keep waking up and trying to go back to sleep. I normally way up neat 9.30 but due to morning shift at work I some time wake up before 8 am.

It's near 6am across the pond from the UK. East Coast USA... I need to work in the afternoon but I just can't sleep right now. No clue why.

My schedule is chaotic at the best of times. My average time to go to sleep is four or five-ish. Not healthy, especially counting how much I work these days.

My girlfriend's habits are near the same, so we don't really have a good system of keeping each other in check. :(

I'm sleeping just like you, but because I like it that way, I enjoy having odd sleeping patterns and sleeping for however long or short my body feels like, I end up sleeping much better like that frankly.

Depends how much work I have to do to be honest.

Agreed.

If you are used to sleeping in a pattern, staying in that pattern will be fine for you. But after years and years of sleeping basically only when I had the opportunity (primarily so that I could keep up a grueling schedule of excess), I find that keeping a regular schedule is near impossible. Sleep when you're tired, get up when you're not. Oh but don't use it as an excuse to miss important shit.

If you have somewhere to be, be there. Maybe that means only sleeping a few hours, or just staying up all night, and thats fine. You're a grown up and you can do whatever works for you. Just take ownership of it.

I have on many occasions found it to be really useful to give people the impression that I don't actually ever sleep, it makes them think you are working harder than you are.
