struggle with staying awake (or vice versa)
Posted 4/6/16
I do. In the most inopportune moments. I've almost nodded off behind the wheel once.*.* But in the middle of the day, before eating, or after a big meal. Haha. >.<

Caffeine gets me through, although sometimes it makes me feel jumpy and worse.

What are your experiences with fatigue, and/or going/staying asleep? Thanks.:)

I had to get checked by a doctor. I'd pass out in the middle of the day from a random bout of fatigue. Turns out it has something to do with my blood, and coffee makes it worse.

It takes me forever to fall asleep at night though, possibly up to 2 hours after laying down (no I didn't drink any caffeine). And I'm not a morning person. However, when I'm overseas/other side of the world, my sleep cycle is awesome.

Basically, I have to fix my blood and move to the other side of the world to get better sleep.

It must be wonderful to both have a sleep cycle and a lead-in to making references to Strike the Blood.

I'm planning to have my doctor do a sleep study on me. I'm tired all the time.

My ex got a sleep study and was told he had apnea, they put him on a CPAP for it. But a month later he was still nodding off at inappropriate times and complaining of tiredness. The did a second sleep study and discovered that he had a type of narcolepsy in addition to the apnea. A prescription took care of that and. He was a whole different person once he was properly sleeping through the night with his CPAP and taking the prescription.

get a sleep study test done to see if you have obstructive sleep apnoea or in the worst case scenario, narcolepsy.

I go to sleep with ease, the only times I feel tired during the day is when either I don't get out in the sun or I get lazy and don't move around much for days on end.

Well, the longest I've stayed awake was 42 hours. Not a great experience!! The most
scary part experiencing that was being behind the wheel, on a busy highway....

I don't have problems sleeping. I just close my eyes and doze off.

Yeah I don't know how people can do all nighters and stuff my body just calls for the bed and I surrender helplessly in the comfort of my blankets.

I struggle staying awake after eating a lot, but I struggle sleeping after drinking a lot. Funnily enough, if I do both, they generally cancel out.
