Sleep. [Nov. 19th, 2004|06:42 am]
[emotional state |awakeawake]
[song on the wind |Morning Edition]

I woke up at 6 am this morning. and by "wake up" i mean, finally gave up on trying to get back to sleep, rolling over, and looking at my phone to see what time it was. i groaned, and snuggled back in with Darxus. 10 minutes later, i realized i wasn't falling back asleep, and decided to go back home, so that Darxus could still get two more hours of sleep.

I give up.

A few weeks ago i started going to bed when Darxus wanted to, and then wakeing up around when he did. it felt good. then something weird happened; i cought up on my sleep. I started wakeing up at like, 8 (when his alarms normally go off) even on saturdays and sundays. and the past few mornings, i've been awake (slightly) before he's been supposed to get up.

This morning i woke up at 6. Eight hours after we had gone to bed. Well, nine hours after we had crawled into bed, eight hours after i think we actually fell asleep. this is rediculous. well, maybe it's rediculous that Darxus needs more than Eight hours of sleep, and i can't say that i don't feel a little tired this morning, and i woke up a few times last night, and i'm not getting as restful of sleep, but, well, i never thought i would catch up on all the sleep i missed in highschool. it appears that i have.

So now i'm gonna have to go back to crawling into bed about two hours after Darxus if i don't want to wake up at sunrise (i was hopeing to watch the sunrise, since i was up, but there was quite a bit of cloudcover.) I like getting more hours of daylight, good for my SAD, but Jesus, this is just crazy. Anyone have any suggestions? or should i just be thankful that i'm getting enough sleep when none of the rest of you are?

I think 8 hours of sleep is pretty normal. I have the same "problem"--if I am caught up on sleep, I cannot sleep more than 8 hours.

I have a Journal entry about my sleeping dissorders... Sounds like your a lucky woman...
I recommend staying off the cocain! It's a stimulant and can make one paranoid.

Life Cycles

8 hours minimum is what we humans require. Teenagers require 10 in order to function but don't usually get them. You're not a teenager anymore so your body is adjusting. It happens every few years - adjustments, I mean. You really don't think your body will be one way for 85 years do you? :-)

If you want to crawl into bed with him, just bring a book with you too. Stay up and read while you're snuggled and doze off when you're ready.

yea, i've done that. except he only has the overhead light in his bedroom. i'm gonna have to get a reading light for that room, and even that he might complain about.

try a coloured light bulb, in your reading lamp. sometimes those are easier to fall asleep with and still possible to read to. like blue, or some such. Two roommates I know use that so one can stay up and read if he wants.

Yes. "Wah, wah, I'm waking up naturally after getting enough sleep!" :P
