When normal folks get tired, they crawl into bed and go to sleep. Why am I not normal? I'm both tired and sleepy this morning.

I didn't get to bed until very late last night. I fell asleep immediately. I was out like a light. And then I woke up. I'd only slept for about 3 hours. I was still tired, but the Sandman had moved on. No more sleep for me. And of course, my husband was snoring soundly. He never has problems sleeping.

I'm not any more stressed than usual. I didn't have caffeine late yesterday. What is going on? Is a good night's sleep too much to ask??

Has this ever happened to you? How do you get yourself back to sleep? Please help.

Your comments--priceless!!

    I am not currently feeling your pain, but I HAVE felt it. Often. I have no answers on how to get back to sleep, but I DO have an idea as to why you were so inconveniently awakened: Jah may be trying to get your attention. So, when that happens, try mediating on some Word or praying. Interesting things are revealed at the most inopportune--to us--times.

    Have a Tony the Tiger kind of day!

    I am not a good person without the proper amount of sleep...lol.
    However, I am blessed to be able to fall asleep very shortly after laying my head on a pillow (or so, I'm told). I do, however, tend to talk and laugh in my sleep (sometimes, I can even remember the funny situation I was laughing about in my sleep).
    I do sleep lighly,(unless I am very tired)and loud talking, movement on the floor, or bed will awaken me (and I don't do well sleeping with a TV on). Other than that........I sleep like a log. I am "not" a morning person, so, I stay up late and I sleep late mornings (unless, there is somethimg serious on and cracking....like a money deal).
    My Morning Poem:
    This Morning I Was Sleeping
    So Soundly In My Bed
    The Blue Bird Started Singing
    Outside On My Window Ledge
    I opened up the Window And
    Shut it on His *&%**#@ Head

  3. What I have done is get out of the bed and watched TV, generally something that I DVR'd. But that doesn't work. Instead of falling asleep, I watch one show after another! What actually works for me is praying. Sounds crazy, but... One I start by praying for sleep. My Pastor says why praying works is the devil will do anything to keep you from praying, even help you go to sleep!

    I just had this conversation with my sister this morning. I battle with insomnia more often than not. Sometimes reading myself bleary eyed works, sometimes not. I have a lot on my mind right now so i suppose that does not help. Sometimes i will go soak in the tub, or give myself a pedicure and hope it relaxes me enough.....sometimes it does.

  5. I've had this happen and it's so frustrating!

    it happens to me a lot and gets frustrating when I'm xtra tired. There are so many things I have tried but no definitive sure fire cure. I just keeping praying one day I will sleep a solid 5-6 hrs.
