Does anyone else have fantastic sleep skills? I can sleep 7.30-6.30 quite easily at the moment, and I still sometimes manage a daytime nap. Maybe a longer daytime nap would allow me to stay out of bed for longer… I just feel like I spend a lot of time in bed.
I can’t promise that my reply will be any help but I know what you mean!
I have gone from sleeping from 11pm to 6am to get up for work…to with this relapse to 9pm to 10am with a short hour or two napping in the middle of the day. Needless to say I am not at work at the mo and yes… it does feel that I spend alot of time in bed. With that in mind I have made sure that the mattress has been replaced for a more supportive one (as I spend so much time in it) and also that the bedding is good quality! Well, if I am to spend ages in bed, I might as well have comfort. Also its saving me loads in new shoes and clothes too as I don’t get to wear them so much!
I guess with that sleep if your body needs it, sleep you must. I hope this relapse goes away for me soon as I do feel a bit out of the loop with the world and feel I am missing out on living. I guess that might strike a chord with you too

I have gone from before relapse 11pm- 6am to get up for work to now, mid relapse, 9pm- 10am with a nap for an hour or so in the midde of the day. I have made sure that my mattress has been replaced for a more supportive one and that the bedding is of good quality as because I spend so much time in bed, I may as well be there in comfort! Also it is saving me money on new shoes and clothes as I don’t get much time to wear them!
But as to sleep. If your body needs it then sleep you must.
I also feel that with the enormus amount of time I am sleeping through any 24 hour period that I am getting out of loop with the world as it carries on without me. Maybe this strikes a chord with you too?
Hello, I know this won’t help, but if think I would switch places with you. I can’t sleep, if I get 4 hours, I count myself lucky, it is effecting work, home basically life. This is not meant in any terms of placing my problem ahead of yours, I think between the two of us, we could be “normal” lol Hope you feel better soon. Greg
Greg, do you take anything to help you sleep? I take amitriptyline every night, it lets me settle when otherwise I’d be jolting myself awake!
Sorry Mrs Chicca, can’t help you but quite jealous as would love a nap daytime so that gets reserved for the weekends
Sonia, Was prescribed something but after researching it on line, found out it is very addictive, sorry don’t know the name, ended in Pam I think. Still debating to try or not, will have to talk with more doctors next week to get more opinions Greg
I understand. A bad nights sleep is horrendous, I’m never quite right after broken sleep.
All I can say is I wish I’d never read this post lol…I’m so jealous I never get a good nights sleep. One day though, I’ll be getting myself one of those fancy electric beds.
Strangely enough I can sleep on and off all day, and I do, but I don’t sleep well at night. I think it is due to neurological surges and pain at night. Not sure what I will do if I ever get back to work.
Hey Blossom and Puddinglover you are not alone. I have forgotten what it is like to have more than a couple of hours of uninterrupted sleep. The dog has given up following me around at night - he just raises an eyebrow and goes back to gently snoring away. Trouble is I am due at work at 7.45 am so I guess it is a case of a nap when I get home at lunchtime. Putting time to good use now as just going to tax the car on line.
