    I have sleep apnoea. 

    Before being diagnosed I was exhausted all the time, don't think I'd had a good nights sleep for years. A friend encouraged me to go for tests, at the sleep clinic, after I fell asleep whilst talking to her:) I was constantly falling asleep and you can't stop yourself. 

    Couldn't go to the cinema, l once fell asleep and snored right through a film. I can laugh about it now but it was ever so embarrassing at the time.
               
    The treatment has been life changing. I hadn't realised the impact sleep deprivation was having on my life until I started on CPAP.

    My alarm is due to go off in about 3 hours for an early meeting. Hopefully I'll get some sleep in before then but it's not looking promising so far.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    I always wake up early when I have to be up to go out. Today its painting club so was awake at 6.45am. Must have slept very still as painful shoulder blade this morning didn't hurt until I moved, so painkillers with tea this morning.

    I was wide awake half an hour before my alarm was due to go off so got up anyway. My meeting has now been delayed :|

    Normally no caffeine after midday then  I meditate  before bedtime,  followed by reading a chapter or two and have solid 8 hours. However  occasionally have bad night  no point tossing and turning,get up,cup of decaf an hour reading propped up in bed and I usually  go back over. I agree with comments about neighbours security  lights and full moons even with  blinds and curtains!

    I don't have any problems getting to sleep, they say watching tv is bad for you and it can keep you awake. I fall asleep watching it and  reading.

    They say that people who can't sleep haven't got enough good bacteria in the gut.

     "They say" a lot of things that are nonsense.  it is a very individual thing, sleep pattern. Bacteria indeed!

    Yes we were awake at 4.45 as usual, hubby walked the boys while i made breakfast.

    I kept hubby from not being able to get sleep because I was in the middle of the bed or sometimes  i have all the  quilt.
