Hello to another night owl.
I have been this way all my life.
I hated to get up in morning for anything, and still do.
I think it relates to sleep patterns
I have taken sleeping pills and gone to bed and I lay awake.
If I took them and watched TV, I would fall asleep.
I feel that our minds run from anxiety and we think about everything and can't shut down our thinking. I am on anxity pills and I'm a Christian also.
The Christian part has to do with, I pray at night. I pray for forgiveness and I start praying for all the things and people, Government and the country and this relaxes me and I fall asleep praying.
It's has something to do with a calming down effect and there is no drama in it.
It's just thinking of forgiving and for peace for others.
I can fall asleep in front of the TV because, my world is blanked out.
Hope this makes some kind of sense to you.
God luck and God's peace

Preaches, Same here, I am awake now and I might fall asleep for a hour and be back up at midnight, at two a.m. I will be walking my dog, even if I have to wake her up to go out. I hate being up when everyone's alseep,even worse I hate feeling sleepy in the day when everyone's wide awake. Like Bucky I pray, sometimes just to sleep, sometimes for the world. I already have anxiety issuses, but now I am getting worse worrying if I will be able to sleep! Nothing helps, I am on enough medications to put an elephant down, but not me. Tonight I have heartburn on top of it, does anyone know how to hypnotize me on line? LOL! Fall Queen

I can't believe I'm still up! Sometimes when I have a "good" day, accomplish a few things, it gets my adrenaline flowing. It's hard to shut it down. Like Bucky and Fall Queen and you too PREACHES, I believe in the power of prayer. I also pray at bed time and it does clear the mind and calm the spirit. However, I still need a little backround noise to sooth me too. I've always been a little on the odd side, but I feel a sense of warmth when I ask for forgiveness for things I did wrong. That warmth I feel in my heart is God forgiving me, I just can't explain it. But you are never alone in your prayers PREACHES. Billions of people worldwide are doing the exact same thing. I'm going to sign off now. have a peacful good night everyone

First a little back ground on me... I've had sleep apnea for years and didn't even know it. I always wondered why I was having the same type of problems you are experiencing. Finally a got new doctor who recommended that I have a sleep study done. I was diagnosis 15+ years ago with sleep apnea and placed on a BI-PAP machine ever since. I have had to repeat the study every few years (requirement of Medicare when getting a new machine) and adjustments were always need to my sleep settings on the machine. So I can speak fom1st hand experience...
It sounds like you need to see a sleep specialist to be tested for your sleep problems. It's possible that you have sleep apnea and don't know it. Only a sleep study will be able to determine this. Make sure the doctor knows your whole story so he/she can order the right test(s). Sometimes tests are done during the night hours while others are done during the daytime hours. I would recommend you think about getting a 24 hour sleep monitoring test done in a certified sleep lab. By doing a 24 hour test the sleep specialist will be able to get a better picture of your problems(s).
