NMHR - total fluff post
« on: January 20, 2017, 12:18:31 AM »

Ok, so this crossed my feed on FB, how does it fit you.
I'm a Leo, and it's pretty right on; but sometimes I can get by with a bit less.
Hubby's a Sagittarius, and that pretty much fits him.

Well, I'm a Gemini, and I generally get about 3 hours a night.  Guess I should have been born in a different month!  LOL

Funny Diane!! I'm a Gemini too. I've ALWAYS needed 8. Just 8. To the point that when I was young, I had no curfew. In Southern Minnesota in the early '80's there was a Public Service commercial. "It's 10 o'clock. Do you know where YOUR teenager is?" We always laughed, 'cause I was just headed to bed.

The only exception to this, for me, is when I do my annual "bump" to reset my internal clock. Then I have to stay up 24 hours to get myself back in sync with circadian rhythms. Been this way as long as I can remember. :-)

Even if we take our average (8+3=112=6.5) it's still wrong.

Lol I am a Libra, and have insomnia, so I never get enough. Hubby is a Gemini he sleeps fine most of the time.
Sense were talking sleep, anyone else have insomnia?

My 87 year old mother would tell you, I WAS BORN WITH IT!!  Poor mom, she never had a break with me.  I NEVER, EVER took a nap (but then I didn't crawl either and didn't walk until 12 months) so I was up screaming for toys!  I know I COUNTED on my kids taking naps during the day just to get things done.  I don't know how she managed (I was a tough kid) but she did.

So, yes, I even tried Ambien for a while, just to get a solid 6 hours of sleep.  Since it has a "half-life" of 6 hours, it never got me past that 6, and I finally figured out, my body would get the sleep it required without me trying to get it to sleep more, so I quit the Ambien.

So, yes, you have a friend here with multiple decades-long insomnia!

I had mild insomnia in college, for me, it was caffeine induced.  It'll still sometimes occur, if I drink too much caffeinated drinks.

I love naps. It's the time I get the best sleep, even if it's only for an hour or two.
I've been this way sense birth too. I was on restoril, for a little bit, it did help me fall asleep but not stay asleep. I can count on one hand the number of times I've woke up feeling I got a good night's sleep.
But it's ok I just carry on and not stress about it.
