Why am I awake?

This is more of a vent than a question but I have to whine to SOMEONE! I have to get up for work at 0330. I finally got to sleep around 1045 last night. I woke up at 0145 to use the potty and can't go back to is now 0245 and I have given up (obviously) and am pouting on CafeMom.

  • First off, I am seriously laughing at your profile name! Its a good one:) I think I have the same allergy but apparently I tend to attract my allergy lol

    As for being up... it SUCKS, I know. I use to have the same problem, I would waking up to pee or to deal with a kid or something and then it would seem pointless to go back to sleep. The benefit was that I would have a GREAT nights sleep the next night

  • Sorry to hear that. I remember when I had that problem and I had to be at work by 5am. After a sleepless night, that day was mighty long and wasn't enough coffee in the world to compensate for the 10 hour workday. Needless to say, after work, I was beat tired. Have you considered taking sleeping pills? Good luck and God bless with your day. You can do this!

  • Lol thanks ladies...and to the cauliflower lady I say...YUMMY!

    Alas an allergy to stupidity has no cure or treatment..and there are days I wonder why I come into CM when stupid seems to run rampant in here sometimes lol.....

    Sleeping pills and I don't get along. Since I have to be up so early I have to take them too early the night before and end up all goofy. I can already taste the extra large tea I will be picking up on my way in to work lol. My shift is 12 hours and you bet your booty I am going to sleep well tonight...I hope...sigh. Insomnia should be illegal!

  • Agh pregnancy sleep troubles are THE WORST! Mostly because you can't DO anything to fix them! I had wicked bad sleep trouble at the end of my pregnancy (I was getting seriously uncomfortable with my twins in there) and I just couldn't sleep at night for the life of me. I was really good at falling asleep in my chair at work though I just took vacation time and stayed home!!!!
