    It has always been a dream of mine. To be able to go to sleep at night and get seven hours good sleep.

    Reality is I'm lucky to get five maybe six hours. Last night it was probably down to 4 [​IMG] and if I get

    stressed at all it could be as low as one to three hours


    So how many hours do you sleep?

    Ha, I've either been cursed or blessed, I'm not sure. Being dirt poor one of my parents ideas of entertainment was to take us kids to the airport to watch the planes take off/land, now they did this when I was a tiny little baby and mom said I slept through it every time so that may have something to do with my ability to sleep 'at the drop of a hat' as E calls it. I used to disappear when I was a kid and my mom or sisters would find me curled up in a ball, asleep, it's always been my escape from reality. But there are times I have insomnia, not a lot but some. I shoot for a good nights sleep, last night was about 7 hours and that's great, I don't function well on 4 hours of less, I mean I really don't function well and add in no caffeinated coffee doesn't help, so a good night 6-8 a bad night 4-6.....or less I guess. Stress definitely effects my ability to sleep, I'll have wicked dreams, not necessarily nightmares but enough to wake and say 'WTF was that all about' and I have a had time getting comfortable, E says 'I fidget too much'.

    I was getting about 3-4 hours (on a good night) I was going to sleep at about midnight and would be wide awake at 2AM.
    I was badly effecting my life, I wasn't really able to do much apart from work. (Which is only part time) I have tried every across the counter remedies, well as a few prescription one too in the past.
    I when to the doctor at the beginning of the year, we tried several different but pills before the one I am on now, which is helping me greatly I am able to get 6 hour most nights. And I feel great!
    My entire adult life I have been a terrible sleeper.

    Normally 7 to 8 hours. If I'm stressed or worried about something I'm lucky to get 3.

    About 5, when I have a normal night.

    A few months ago I was only sleeping for about 2 hours.

    I average 5 to 6 during the week and might be able to stay in bed for another couple hours on the weekends. My back starts hurting if I stay any longer. My wife says it's not fair that I can go to sleep without any effort.

    As others have said, if I don't get 7 or 8 hours, I turn into a zombie and can't think straight.
    This thread reminds me of something I read that said that we're all just 7 days away from madness 'cause if you don't sleep for that long, you will go crazy. I'm only a couple of days away from madness at any given moment, so I'm glad I can sleep :D
