Here ya go...--

Here's a neat kitty pic, ( below) for ya, Alpha, (if you still come by and read this blog). It was fun viewing those cute cat pics that you had the other night, thank you. :-) You can find many of them at the site where I got the cat pic below. Isn't that a funny one? Velcro kitty! LOL

I stayed up too late again -- Ugh -- :-( I had/have a lot of things I need to do in RL today and now I feel like canceling them all, because I think it will be hard for me to get to sleep (if I do) at 9:30 am or so and have to wake up again 2.5 to 3 hours later. (Blah)

I suppose I COULD just try to stay up without sleeping at ALL but I don't think it would be safe to drive places with no sleep at all. :-(

Ah... no... Catty Sis would rapidly be Six-foot-under Sis if she went without sleep at _ALL_ >:-(... no fun there.

Hope you can find the right combination of factors to get you asleep regularly... we _all_ need to sleep, for a part of the 24-hr cycle, to "recharge the batteries" :). Denying it won't do you any good, nor will using artificial stimulants to keep yourself awake :(. Will make you more creative as well :).

Just fix the problems as they are identified, and we'll all have much more fun *huggles* (^_^)/

WHOOHOOOO!!!!! An actual comment from Alpha! (grin) :-) Did ya like the cat pic above? "Velcro Kat" LMAO --- So funny! (IMO)

Yeah -- I ended up calling and cancelling all my appointments today and stayed home and slept. Wheeee.... Now I will try to deal with guilt around staying home and sleeping. :-/

I did years of no sleeping, still need to medicate to this day. But I find having a really good routine and schedule that I stick to that helps.
~NO caffeine
~Take meds same time every night
~Go to bed at the same time every night
~Turn off TV by 10pm. (tv will keep you up, your brain needs time to stop working.)
~Sometimes a cup of sleeptime tea helps
~Hot bath before bedtime
~Make sure I have everything that makes me comfy like pillows and good bed linens
~Vaporizer on, so I don't dry out
~Burt's Bee's lip balm...I go nuts if my lips dry out.
~Glass of water by bed, so I don't have to get up.
~Taking calcium at night can also help with sleep
~Don't eat past 8 p.m.

I know this all sounds goofy, but they are all parts of my bed time routine that I have peiced together over the years in the desperate attempt to get a good nights rest. So whatever your recipe is, stick to it religiously every night so your body learns to fall into that routine.

OOooooo those sound like great suggestions, MI, and many of them you listed were ones I had never heard before! For instance -- I didn't know that taking calcium before bed would help with sleep! Cool! Thanks! And I sure know what you mean about not liking lips being dry -- We have so much in common in a way - I always have to have my aloe lip balm and water by the bed. :-)

A lot of those other suggestions I really need to work on ..... but they really would be good things for me to have as routine.

TY again. :-D

I know, none of it is really easy. I was told at a committee meeting last week by a co-committee friend that is takes 22 times for you to do something before it becomes a habbit that you don't think about.

Of course this means that some university somewhere spent probably an obscene amount of money doing a study to find this out. (Rolling eyes) However, now that we have this life changing information at our disposal, we should just run with it. lol ;)
