Is what The Boss said to me this morning. I smiled and lay back, preening myself. Then she said "You hardly move when you are asleep!" Oh, bubble burst! I thought that she meant... well you know what I thought... So do you sleep well at night?

Lol! I don't sleep too well. But yesterday I came across a lovely warm blanket that I forgot I had. Put that on the bed last night, and had the best sleep ever.

Is there a reason why you don't sleep? My SIL lives in Singapore and just sent p1kelet a beautiful green quilt from Cambodia. She's sleeping soundly under it right now.

Ah stress mainly. Family things and health things. Need to start doing tai chi again! :) The Cambodian quilt sounds lovely. I love blankets and quilts as I am cold a lot of the time. (That also contributes to my sleep patterns..) Hope you are feeling well.

Some nights, I do sleep well but there are more nights that I feel restless and I can't sleep so I spent my waking hours surfing the net.

I find that if I do that then I tend to stay up all night and feel awful the whole of the next day. I am quite disciplined now, but once upon a time I had to have a friend e mail me at 10.30pm and tell me to go! LOL.

hi pikey befor e I got stuck here in this tiresome retirement center I would not be able to sleep so would get onto the net and start mylotting then get sleepy go to bed and sleep til 8 or 9 am. here I have to go to bed at ten and get up at 6 for 7 am breakfast. sometimes I feel like I am in the army being got up at 6 am. all I think to make life easy for the kitchen crew lol lol. here I could not go back to my old life style as I have as roomie who thinks I am daft for not going to bed at 8pm so to compromise I set ten pm as my bedtime but should have said 11 pm . as thats always been my supposed bedtime. I have had times too when I surfed late in the morning and not been able to sleep too. not fun at all.

It all depends upon where I am sleeping, how tired I am, and with whom I am sleeping. Seriously, though, if the little one is sick, then I barely get any sleep, because I hear her every move, especially when she is congested, because she has a tendency to cough, get sick and gag when she is sick. Therefore, most nights I just stay on the couch with her to keep her head elevated and help her get as much rest as possible. After a couple nights of this, however (and once she is feeling better), I am out cold as soon as my head hits the pillow and a bomb could probably go off next to me and I wouldn't wake up.

Children cause us to find hidden abilities to stay awake and somehow still function. I am like you. Two nights with disturbed sleep equals one really good night.

HA! I don't sleep well. I wake up several times a night, sometimes for no reason I can figure out. But since I moved my deceased mother's "sleep number" bed into my room at least I no longer wake up in the night with aches and pains! I'm not a good sleeper and never have been since I was born. I've tried artificial means but I feel groggy in the morning so I've accepted that I'll never sleep through the night.

Last night I didn't sleep so well in fact. But generally I do OK nowadays. 6- 8 hours most nights.

Haha, I read 'The Boss' and read it as 'the boss' as in the one at work and it took me a bit to put 2 and 2 together without getting 5... I was wondering what in God's name your boss was doing speaking to you like that haha. I'm a sound sleeper, I'm very good at it, but according to my poor man I'm a restless, noisy sleeper! Go figure...

LOL. The Boss is of course the wonderful woman who has been my rock and support for the past 25 years.

I figured as much lol, it was the initial confusion I had that amused me. I have a boss too, the man of the house - the trousers are the other way around in our house!

I am pleased to hear that. I have had some experience of mental health issue as well. Sleep can help. I hope that you make a good recovery.

hi pikefish oh my she really did burst your bubble.I had a night for the books. I woke up at 2 am with cramps in both legs running up the inside into my groin total agonizing pain. I finally had the cramps subsiding so I limped to the bathroom. then coming back I tripped over something, think it was my shoe, and fell. As a large woman with two bad knees and a shoulder joint re placement that left my left arm pretty useless, when I was on the floor sitting on my butt the damned cramps in my legs came back. agony my roomie who is much smaller tried to pull me up but I cou ld not get on my feet because I was in searing, nerve sizzling pain in both legs. She got a fellow resident who is a big man to help me. But his shouldre gave out just as mine did.So they went down to get a care giver, meanwhile I had got on my knees and grabbing the edge of my bed I did get myself up. When they came back they asked me if I was in pain and yes the searingnerve twanging cramps had once more came up my legs both of them.They wanted me to go get checked out but other than the cramps I was fine so they left me hoping I would soon get rid of the cramping. so once the cramping was finally stopped I got back in bed. Got to sleep only to wake with my right ankle cramping but I managed to walk that off. then to my dismay we got our six am call to get up. I did get to go back to bed after breakfast and I did sleep from 8to 11 am . now I feel great. b ut I wish I knew what on earth had caused both of my legs to cramp into my groin. it has something to do with the nerves in the groin as it was searing pain not just the ache of cramps one gets in the calves of your legs. I think since I was horribly thirsty I cramped because I was really dehydrated.so have been really drinking water this afternoon. so last night I did not sleep well at all,hardly got over two hours sleep so tongight I hope I really can sleepl lol lol

Poor Patsie! You do suffer. But you always come bouncing back to us all cheerful. Keep drinking - shame that it's only water!

Wow p1key, can always rely on you for a good chuckle!!! With a 2 year old in the house my sleeping well at night varies depending on how he sleeps. Plus with my partner working evenings and coming home late, he sometimes disturbs me but I repay the favour by having to start work early in the mornings.
