Most nights I am up late either watching a movie or playing on the computer. One or two am is not late for me, I have a hard time sleeping so it is nothing for me to stay up till dawn sometimes, when I feel tired during the day I can lay down and take a nap. I know this isn't possible for most that have to get up for work, but how many are out there that can stay up as late as they want.

About a month ago I had a horrible cold the doctor prescribed some cough medicine with codeine in it. One teaspoon full and you was out. I would take it around 11 and with in a few minutes, I was heading for the bed, I would not get up till 8 or 9 and I said hey this is what sleeping is all about getting more than 2 or 3 hours a night. I felt a lot better in the morning cause I wasn't exhausted, but then the medicine ran out and I was back to 2 or 3 hours a night. Now my daughter has a broken ankle and she can not drive, so I am the one that has to take her to school and to her appointments. Plus she has 2 daughters in everything I believe the school has and I am constantly on the road, so by the time I get back home and everyone's day is over, if I sit down in the chair I'm out. I am 62 and not like it was when I was younger, the energy. Too bad it takes wearing us out before we can finally lay down and go to sleep.

I have a problem sleeping.I usually stay up real late ,sometimes into the morning hours..When i was younger i could go to bed around ten and sleep like a baby all night long..My husband could not understand how i could just lay my head on a pillow & go to sleep almost instantly..These days it is not that way,I am never ready to go to bed..I went to bed around 2:30 this morning & tossed & turned & finally just got up..Then around 3:30 I layed back down and slept about an hour & i am up again..I have felt like i need to go to the doc & get something to help me sleep but i hate to take a pill to sleep..I really do not know what my problem is...I still remember the good ole days when i could sleep...

I don't generally like to stay up too late during the day because it makes me quite sluggish the next day even if I wake up late to try and compensate for going to bed really late. I like to get into bed by midnight most days. I can't sleep that well either but I try to read before bed a little which does usually help me get into the mood to sleep.

Hi bdugas, I am not a very late sleeper though i rise early most of time. Usually if i am home 11 pm and i cant move a muscle. as soon as clock turns eleven i feel all my energy has sapped and i start yawning and go to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow but i usually get up at about 3 am and study for atleast 3 hours before i start my day. This help me in being able to cope up with the heavy demands of my subjects which i have taken and can go to college more confidently.

We are creatures of habit. We can work night shift. We can sail boats single handed where we sleep only 20 minutes at a time 24/7. We can make do with 3 hours sleep at night and yet others are still exhausted after 10 hours sleep! The thing that really breaks me is being deprived of sleep. I just can't take it. And with the Olympics coming up in two days I can see that happening to me! It was the same when the Olympics were in Australia - the time zone meant that all the action took place in my night time. So my regular time of sleep between midnight/1am to 7am (less getting up for wees at all hours - haha) will be shattered over the next two weeks!

I usually go to bed at 9pm. If I don't, I'm tired the next day and can't get anything done, but on the night before I have a day off, I usually stay up late. Take care

I am trying to find a job that works with me. I never have been a morning person. I simply cannot manage to go to sleep by 1 or 2 am and get up at 9 or 10. If I try I am always exhausted the next day. If I stay up till 5 or 6 am, and sleep till 1 or 2, I am perfectly rested, and ready to go all day till the next morning. Right now I'm between jobs, so this isn't an issue. But finding a job where I can work that way is proving to be a pain.

I stay up quite a bit too. Its 1 in the morning here and I have to be at work at 9:45 tomorrow, but I went to bed as soon as I got home from work at 6 and slept until 11 and now I'm up again. I stay up too many nights and then am so tired that I hit the couch as soon as I get in. Not a very good or healthy regimen to be in, I guess.
