How do you feel when you get up of the mornings?

Well, I feel like "death warmed over" as my daddy used to say. I feel worse than I did before I went to bed. I guess I inherited that from my daddy. My husband after 32 years has learned you don't talk to me when I get up. I will growl like an "ole bear". I don't want to talk I barely can grunt at you. LOL It takes me an hour or more to get awake and ready to face the day. If I have to get up before I wake up, and I usually wake up around 6 am. I feel so bad through the day because I have had to wake up before my body wanted to. I have a tee shirt that my daughter bought me that says, "Just because I'm up and dressed doesn't mean I am awake." Then she bought me another one with a puppy and a cup of coffe that say , "I am not a morning person." Both fit me to a tee. LOL How are you when you get up of the morning?

Sounds like you are not getting restorative sleep. Maybe you should have a sleep study by a sleep lab to see if you are getting enough oxygen to your brain when you sleep. I discovered that I was not getting oxygenated while sleeping and therefore not feeling rested when I awoke. Using a CPAP, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, machine helped a lot. Ask you doctor about it.

My kids knew by the time they were two that you don't ask Mommy anything before breakfast! So I know what you mean.

I have wondered if I was not getting the recuperative sleep. That I was not reaching that stage of sleep. I don't go to doctors but very seldom so that will be a last resort. Thanks for posting.

If I go to bed early I will wake up fresh adn feel good. If I go to bed late...over my bedtime which is like 11.30pm and have to wake up early the next day I would definitely not feel fresh. But most of the time I wake up okay because I work from home so I will sleep until I wake up naturally which in most cases it's 7.30am. My body is sort of tuned up and can't sleep late.

I can't sleep late either. Sometimes I wish I could so I would get my sleep out but I wake up around 6 am every morning, well, no, I wake up around 5 and doze off and on until around six. Thanks for the post.

I love wearing the shirt. I get so many comments on it. I get quite a few laughs too. Thanks for the post.
