ANXIOUS FOR THE DAWN -- IS IT NORMAL?
October 31, 2017 11:55am CST
Do you like sleeping? I have come to the conclusion that maybe I don't - and I do wonder if there is a name for someone who doesn't like to sleep. I know sleep is necessary and I have no problem falling asleep, but when I check my phone and it says 4a.m. I am happy and relieved - because I know dawn is only two hours away , and I can start my day . After my morning rituals - by 7.30 a.m. I am sitting with my laptop and a cup of coffee or tea. What is your wake up time in the morning - during the week and weekends? Are you usually happy to see the dawn?

I am one of those people who love to sleep, I go to bed around midnight, read till my eyes are closing and then I wake around 9 am naturally, unless I am disturbed, When Tony was on Chemo I did not get to sleep, or not a restful sleep.

I am like that too, I am up early, as early as my body tells me to get up. Usually on my days off I'm up earlier then on some work days, just because I am ready to enjoy the day doing what I want to do. On working days I have to be up around 7 to be at work on time.

I also look forward to sleep time. After a busy day , I like getting in my comfortable bed, but I am even happier when morning comes. Whether its the weekend or a holiday I never remain in bed after 6 a.m. I was like that even when I held a 9 to 5 job.

Actually I can relate to what you're saying. I was never an early morning person but now when I get up during the early hours I check to see the time and I am happy to note that it is already early morning. Then is I fall asleep again and get up at say 10 I feel that I have slept too much. So I think for awhile I will always set my mobile phone to 9 AM and get up at that time and see how that works. Then with time I can adjust. Enjoy your day.

Yes, I am. I have very irregular sleep patterns. Some nights, I fall asleep and stay asleep for several hours. Others, I lie awake half the night, and then I'm exhausted by 5 a.m. Like you, I go to sleep quickly most nights, but it's STAYING asleep that's the problem. I had to laugh here, too, for when I check MY phone, it's almost always 4 a.m. or thereabouts. And then I can't wait for the sun to come up!

@Kandae11 I don't have a TV in my room, so I usually just lie there tossing and turning. I play this little game in which I try to guess what time it is, as I don't have a clock near my bed anymore. Sometimes it feels like I've been sleeping for hours, I check my phone, and it's just 2 a.m. (Not good.) Then other times, I feel like I slept very little and it's 5 a.m. (GOOD!)
