Hello fellow insomniacs!
It is nothing new to me to have difficulty sleeping. I have been used to having long cycles of sleeping little followed by shorter cycles of sleeping at least a regular amount sometimes sleeping a great deal.
What is new to me, and has been happening for around two months is a state of constant waking throughout the little hours i do sleep.
I tend to go to sleep around 2-3am and get up at 7am. The problem is i wake up between every 15 minutes to every half an hour (My so believes it actually much more frequent than this that i sit up and try to get out of bed befor he tells me it's not time to get up).
I usually think i'm late and struggle (half asleep) to get out of bed. I then go downstairs to put the kettle on or go to the lavatory or get a drink of water or prepare the childrens breakfast...only to find it's half an hour since i last got up. My partner is being woken up by me doing this and often tells me it's not time to get up so i come back to bed.
I seem to have no awareness of time and for some reason i do not look at the BIG bedroom wall clock!
I just wondered if this is a common thing?
Does anyone else have this?
Is it some kind of sleep disorder?
And finally should i go to the quacks about it?
My SO thinks i really should go but he's a bit of a hypercondriac and i don't want to make a big fuss if theres nothing they can do. I also do not want to keep waking up my so, it seems pretty unfair.
