No I don't! I've had irregular sleep hours for a year now since I started my shifting-schedule work. I can remember having only 2 hours of sleep then I'm going back to the office again..and 28 hours of not sleeping because we need to finish a task whew..but over the weekend I overly sleep for about 12 to 15 hours to cope up again haha=) I know that we need seven to eight to keep us healthy but it is really hard to maintain that!..=) Do you manage to get a complete sleep every day??? Share your stories..=)

Oh... I can always sleep very tight. Maybe you could take a cup of hot milk before you go to sleep. I think it works for lots of people. Since you started your shifting-schedule work, don't know whether you could, you'd better take a catnap in the noon, that will make you full of energy in the daytime.

Amjadnis my name and sleepig is my game, lol. I love sleeping, there is anything better than sleeping. It's the sweetest thing especially when your hellishly sleep and your dying to get a nice nap. Well, i have this thing in me that if i am sleepy then i sleep no matter that wok i have or task to complete, i just sleep. During my exams if i am sleep and my preparation of paper is zero, still i go to sleep. Because i cannot do anything if i am sleepy, when your mind is totally fresh than your totally a different person. Example: in sleep brain it will take more time to study and get your work done. If your mind is totally fresh than i can study and grab the concepts very fast.

I surely don't get the recommended 7 to 8 hours a sleep every night. I wish I did. I suffer because when I go to sleep I can't shut my brain off. Last night I got 8 hours of sleep but that was because I took a tylenol pm pill to help me sleep. I'm going to bed now and I hope to sleep good but I didn't take a pill tonight. I don't want to depend on anything to make me sleep.

Oh you must have an insomnia then..did you already seek a doctor's advice??..you are right it's no good to depend on any pills it will have negative effect on your body if you continue it..try to read or drink milk before going to sleep hopefully it will work..anyway good night =)

No I haven't gone to a doctor because they will just try to prescribe sleeping pills and I don't want anything like that. I will just continue to try to get to bed at a regular time each night and pray to God to let me sleeps. Thanks so much.

What I don't like about my work is the shifting schedules that would disrupt my sleeping pattern. I usually sleep at 2am and wake up at 10am. But because of my new work schedule, I go to sleep at 6am and then I wake up at 10am have much trouble getting back to sleep because the atmosphere is not really conducive of sleeping.

actually since i only stay at home and have nothing to do then yes i have a very long hour of sleep. i can sleep anytime as long as i want without minding other people coz i also live alone. and if i sleep more hours i normally become more sleepy than if i sleep for only few hours.

Hi, khaezi. Right now, my two-year-old daughter tends to get up in the wee mornings. And it keeps me from getting all of my sleep. I am so tired. On a seven day basis, I may get my eight hours about 4 times a week if I am lucky. I love getting all of my hours of rest, it makes me feel refreshed and ready to start the new day.

Hello cream97!..it's pretty normal for kids to get up and sleep at irregular interval..I understand that it is really hard to be a mom, it think you should take a nap whenever your daughter is asleep so you could gain your energy as well..=)

Very rarely do I get the designated number of hours of sleep I need a night. Even on the week-end, it's a miracle for me to sleep in any later than 8am. However, I've always been one of those lucky people who doesn't need a lot of sleep to function properly, and have even had times where I have gone without sleep and managed to remain perfectly normal

Wow you are lucky though..because you can still execute your tasks properly even without enough sleep. I usually get blank and really dizzy-poor me I still need to get my work done before I can sleep..haha
