Default Sleeping

One of the problems with snow removal is messing up the time you sleep and wake up.

Usually it takes me about 3 days to get back on track;

Day 1
This is the day you finish work. It's most likely a time where you are exhausted and going to sleep, yet everyone else is just waking up.

Day 2
This is the day you will wake up when everyone has gone to sleep. You are stuck staying up all night with absolutely nothing to do, and no one to talk with.

Day 3
This is the day that is a part of Day 2, and you haven't gone to bed yet. You are actually planning to stay awake until late in the evening so you can fall asleep at a good time like a normal person. Today SUCKS because you are already tired around 7am-12am but must stay awake until at least 5pm.


Day 3 takes a lot of will power. Unfortunately I ran out of it and end up sleeping all day now LOL. It's going to be 7PM and my 'day' is just starting.

Man Scott I think the reason you can't sleep is your to busy obsessing about sleep.
I know the harder I find it to get to sleep the more frustrated I get and the harder it is to go to sleep.





I want to sleep I love to sleep I just can't seem to go to sleep.I can work an 18 to 20 hour day barely be able to walk to the bedroom but once I lay down and my head hits the pillow I'm wide a wake thinking about what I just did or what I need to do tomorrow or what I could have done better. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR .
I hate it.
Thanks Scott Now I can't sleep again Thanks a frigging lot.

LOL!

It's because as soon as I get home, I have to check my email. Make sure I didn't get any complaints etc, and see if anything interesting is happening on the forum.

Once the above happens, I end up on the computer for hours doing absolutely nothing. In a way, it's my reward for working so much. I can't sleep if I feel as though I didn't have that 'fun' part of my day so I try to make it happen.

SUCKS!

I'll be up till 8AM tomorrow... I can either sleep or force myself to stay up. Considering I have absolutely nothing to do, I will most likely go to sleep and continue the cycle of doom.

I know how you feel man. When I was in the military I worked 3rd shift. My last day of work would be Thursday at 11pm until Friday morning at 7am. I would then stay awake all day until 9/10pm and then attempt a regular sleep routine. Then Sunday night comes around 11pm and that starts my work week. Problem was I woke up Sunday morning around 7 or 8 am and stayed up until I was off of work Monday morning until 7 am...so yeah, I didn't sleep much. LOL

How much of this do you feel falls under the concept of Circadian rhythm?

Impact of light–dark cycle

The rhythm is linked to the light–dark cycle. Animals, including humans, kept in total darkness for extended periods eventually function with a freerunning rhythm. Their sleep cycle is pushed back or forward each "day", depending on whether their "day", their endogenous period, is shorter or longer than 24 hours. The environmental cues that reset the rhythms each day are called zeitgebers (from the German, "time-givers").[16]


I find this to be fascinating stuff and it could explain problems people have in falling to sleep or not being tired or even trying to force a sleep schedule upon themselves.

What's your view on it?

It's so friggen interesting.

I do know that I have/had pretty awful insomnia, and taking medicine for it didn't help. It would actually have reverse effects on me for some reason.

My body would feel tired, but my brain wouldn't allow me to sleep. I have stayed up for an entire month, and I'm not lying. This was when I was I believe 18 years old.

After the first week without being able to sleep, I decided to give up and just work more hours/double shifts. It really took it's toll on me.

When you don't sleep, wounds don't heal, they just get worse. Your body will try shutting down on you, and you will not have control over it.

The day I did fall asleep is the day I collapsed in front of my house coming home from jogging (I spend every night jogging trying to tire myself out, and to waste the time the world was asleep). I had 2.5% bodyfat.

ANYWAY, those days are over. Though, I still cannot sleep like most people. Even after a lot of work, I find I need to be awake for at least 36 hours to really be able to rest.

-

I'm not sure why I have this problem, but I do know my mind is very active, but I assume a lot of peoples minds are active but I have never met someone with a similar issue.

Maybe it's because I'm also a paranoid person, I know if I go to sleep I might miss something. If I wake up, I'll have 'problems'? to deal with.

Can't win... LMAO

You got a lot of things to think about and you are in a building stage, constantly looking to see what you can do to make things better. I am sure there are others on here that have a lot of excitement for what they do that their mind races thinking of it all.

My Doctor says it all part of my Anxiety Disorder.
This is what keeps me doing what I do I have to keep my mine going doing something creative or I seem to zone out and my mine races in all direction,
cause more harm then good. This is why the winter down time is driving me crazy. way to much time on my hands and not enough outlets for my mind.
