I know exactly what you mean. I'm a natural worrier, actually I have serious anxiety issues; it doesn't matter if something is small or big, I'm going to worry about it, and once that starts, there is no stopping it; so I just get up.

I laid down and took a nice long nap this morning.

Have you tried OTC sleeping pills. I took them for years and they worked well. I could go to sleep and wake up just fine. No grogginess or anything. Unfortunately, they've stopped working. I've taken them for years though and had to fight the effects on many occasions when my elderly family members needed my immediate help. That might have contributed to my over tolerance of the pills.

Melantonin[sp?] gives me nightmares so it's a skip for me.

I am a light sleeper--aren't most women. We have to respond to the needs of our families, pets, and bosses at all hours. We're used to doing without sleep. Just how it is.

Before my children, I was a SUPER light sleeper. Every time my husband would get into bed, I'd wake up immediately. Now, I sleep more deeply (as in he can come to bed without waking me), but the instant the boys are up, Ill wake up suddenly and have this weird vibrating like feeling that alerts me they're awake. I've never had trouble sleeping. Going or staying sleep: I'm only up now because I was catching up with my sis who I haven't been able to talk to in a while, and the baby is kicking pretty fiercely lol.
