Hi moneymommy...It happens to me more and more often. Then I'm a zombie at work. I have read newspapers, gone on the computer, watched movies, watched tv , read magazines. As long as I don't wake anyone up, I'll do whatever it takes to put myself back to sleep.

If I cannot sleep at night I normally just lay there and suffer. I always have that hope that somehow magically I will fall asleep and I am afraid if I get up I will never fall asleep. It does not happen to me very often though.

Lets see what do i do when I can't sleep. I sometimes log back on my laptop finish some of my school work (that usually will help me get sleepy fast LOL) or I'll turn my TV on watch some HGTV and/or finish some of my craft projects. Oh I can't forget sometime I'll even clean the heck out of my house.

I often go to sleep without too much trouble, its staying asleep I have problems with. My doctor recommended Benedryl to help going and staying asleep. Having said that, I will get up and play games or mylot when I wake up in the middle of the night.

I read. Or if it's my legs keeping me up then a hot bath or shower will help. I love to get up (they say you shouldn't stay in bed) get a cup of tea and curl up in our chair to read in the quiet of the night. Our days are always active and our nights tend to be that way too but sometimes I get a treat.

Well it has happened with me few times Well at a specific time in night if we will not sleep then after that time we might not feel sleepy for even an hour and then we might sleep again. As far as waking up early is concerned it happen if you have specific hours to sleep and you avoid that on weekends. So you might experience this thing on Sunday's and Monday's.

What I usually do when I can't sleep is watch tv. Once in awhile I will get up and work on a craft project. I was up this morning before 5:00 for no reason. So, I got up and stayed up. Can hit the sack earlier tonight since we have nothing happening. My husband is off work for a few days so we are free to do whatever we want. Nice for a change.
