This seemed like the best thread to ask this in. Anyone here have incidents of sleep apnea?
Because something odd happened a couple of nights ago. I don't know if I would characterize it as sleep apnea, but it was rather odd and startling.
Or maybe I just imaged it all.
I woke up partway. I was at this weird state of waking where I'm not sure who I am, where I am, which way is up, down, left, right, and what's that big furry thing next to my head. Well this time, I also felt that my respirations were slooooow and shaaallloooww. I was under the impression that I was about to die. When I finally woke up completely, I did a fair bit of coughing.
I don't know if I imagined it, or if it was really a problem. So I'm asking you all if you've experienced something similar.

It's 3:37am. Do you know where your AP is? Sitting in her office not working. Listening to music, which really isn't helping, she wants to go dancing.

I've been having trouble sleeping lately, probably due to stress, and I tend to wake up in the early morning and have trouble getting back to sleep. I always wake up between 5 and 7, which makes going back to sleep almost useless because I barely have time to get back to sleep before I have to be up again, but those last few hours are some of the most important, and these false starts really fuck up my day. I don't usually have a problem getting to sleep - a few pages of a really dense or boring book and I'm out like a light - but when it's already light outside it really doesn't work so well. I work at a fantastic health food store where they sell natural sleep aids in every form you could think of - teas, loose herbs, tinctures, pills, aromatherapy sprays, etc. I found these two teas that are supposed to treat insomnia with herbs like chamomile, skullcap, hops and passion flower. Does anyone have any experience with these teas or the herbs in them? I noticed Aural recommended chamomile, so I'll have to give that a try.

Fellow bad slepper here as well. I never used to have trobule sleeping I used to be able to crash and sleep the whole way through but I wake up lots and toss and turn and stress. Normally now I get up around 2 for a couple of hours and go back to bed. I have trobule also shutting down my brain. I always seem to be stressing about work, money, flat etc. I get up and make a hot drink and normally watch some trash on the horror channel and I can fall back to sleep quite easily.

Things I have noticed that help me--keep in mind these don't work all the time.

1. No coffee, caffienated sodas, or tea after 2pm.
2. Regular exercise, but not within 2 hours of your sleep time.
3. No TV, computer, loud music, movies, or riveting reading 1 hour before bedtime
4. this is the most important one--REGULAR BEDTIMES!!! Get in bed before 11pm every night without fail. Even one night off can set off days upon days of circadian rhythms.
5. NO SMOKING or secondhand smoke. Nicotine is a powerful stimulant, and even being in a smoky space and not smoking yourself you can ingest enough to keep you awake.
6. This one is obvious, but NO ENERGY DRINKS OR DIET PILLS! Besides being bad for your heart due to being massive amounts of amphetamines, they will rob you of sleep even faster than coffee or Mountain Dew.
7. earplugs and sleep masks are your friend.
8. alcohol is actually not a good idea, because while it may help you go to sleep, it will make your sleep lest restful. Ditto for over the counter sleep aids and things like Nyquil.

Even with all these aids, if you are prone to insomnia you may still have it once in a while. Turn the clock around so you can't obsess over how late it is, and take a boring book to bed if you wake up. Stressing out about not being able to sleep will make it worse. As counter-productive as it seems, it's better to relax with a book at 3 in the morning than toss and turn and get angry and upset.

Insomnia is epidemic in this country, and it sucks big donkey ass.

Freaking hot flash...

It's 3 a.m., and woke up drenched. It also doesn't help that I'm thinking about the dog being sick either. Plus, I found out the real estate agent who had an appointment with tomorrow basically canceled on me. Asshat.

My problem lately isn't falling asleep but waking up in the middle of the night. I don't think I've ever fallen asleep so well as I have been lately. I just tell myself I'm not allowed to think about anything real (work, family, friends, upcoming plans, etc) but just let my mind wander and I'm out in probably 15 minutes. I can't ever remember falling asleep so quickly. But often some time between 5-7 I wake up and stay that way. My heart starts to race and my mind won't shut off and I'll sort of fade in and out of restless periods. I'm hoping this passes once winter is finally out of sight.

Another useless post. I blame the computer screen (and coffee in the 4:00pm hour). And cramps. Damn it all. I want to fall in a deep, restful sleep, the kind where I wake up 9 hours later not thinking I moved from the position I fell asleep in and feel 1000% better than the day before.
