Sunday night insomnia

Recommended Posts

I cannot relate to insomnia at all. I have the total opposite problem, I can't stay awake. If I sit still for more than 20 minutes, I will fall asleep. I am asleep in less than 2 minutes when I go to bed. This feeling is just as bad. I used to fall asleep in meetings at work, movies anything that required me to sit still.

I took one (1/2 dose) of a generic brand PM aspirin pill a little before 9 pm last night. And my alarm goes off at about 6:15ish. So that's a little over 9 hours. I thought that would be plenty of time to feel fine. I think that next time I will take it even earlier and probably only half a pill (1/4 dose).


I do have to say though that I slept GREAT. Matt went to the Eagles game last night and I didn't even wake up when he came to bed or if he got up to pee at all. The bad part was waking up this morning. I kept snoozing the alarm, cuz I was so tired. Like my body felt heavy kinda tired. And with each snooze I was knocked back out. So it was really hard to wake up. Then I get on the train for 1 hour 15 minutes, and I fell right back asleep. I think I might've even been snoring on the train. I got to work at 10 (since I overslept so much!), and I would say that I felt better by 10:30-11. My head felt foggy for a bit, but I am fine now.

Meanwhile DH was sound asleep all night!!!!


My mother has been telling me to take Tylenol PM or Advil PM but I've been trying to avoid that. But since it's not getting any better I think I'm gonna try to take 1 Advil PM tonight & see how that works.


Carly, I'm just wondering what time did you take it last night? Maybe it wasn't early enough to keep you from being groggy this morning?

I can kinda relate in a way to that as well. I take the train to and from work every day, and I am on it for at least an hour each way, sometimes more. Ever since I got into the habit of sleeping on my train rides, whenever I get into a car/truck/something that moves, I get all drowsy. It's so hard for me to stay awake in a car!

At CVS you can get the melatonin in a 3MG, try and split that in half, you may just need that. If that doesn't have you sleeping in an hour or so, take the other half. You have to play around to get the right MG dose for your body.


I've tried using it, but my problem is actually STAYING asleep. Ever since labor day weekend 07, the end unit townhouse (which is 5 doors from me) caught fire and I sat and watched it from my car. I've been so scared of fire. Thank god we had a hurricane that weekend so the wind was blowing the opposite direction, we had no damage at all just a little smoke smell occasionally when we had the windows open. So I think that and working nights had a big impact on my sleep.


Now with my prescription sedative I'm gtg!!

I used to always get that. I HATED sundays because that meant that I had to go to work and my weekend was over. I hate/hated my job. I'm on mat leave now so I don't get it anymore but I'm sure when I go back it will come back too. I hope it gets better for you.

I have the same problem. I think for me it's a combination of not wanting to go to work the next day, trying to get ready for the week and sleeping a little late on Saturdays and Sundays. I've been trying to get up earlier but even that doesn't help. This past Sunday I was up at 7, which is about 1/2 hour later than normal and I still didn't get to sleep until 2 or 3 a.m. I have tried the PM drugs but I still have a problem. It's almost like I'm wired when I take them, even if I take them at 7:00 p.m. I still can't sleep. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm not going to sleep on Sundays.


What happens to me is I think I doze during the night and I feel like I never slept but I know I did. Crazy, I hate it!!!

    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
