I feel my sleeping depends on if Im alone, and my surroundings.
My insomnia comes from the way i was raised. I always literally slept with “one eye open” so it has caught up with me.
When I am at my moms, I cannot sleep to save my life, hence who i was around growing up! Sometimes my sleeping pills didnt even work.
Believe it or not, it would get so bad that I would literally have to drink myself to sleep at her house.
But when I was with my ex, the girl I just broke up with, I did not have to take my sleeping pills, I would pass right out.
I do think sometimes it is a psychological issue.March 8, 2010 at 7:02 am #9737

Sadly I sleep worse with hubby. He snores (even wearing nose strips) and if I'm not asleep before him then I cannot drop off as I tune into him. Even if he's not snoring I tune into his breathing. Some nights I have slept on the settee and some nights he has to let me sleep (bless him). Though most nights I either go to bed first to allow me to fall asleep or we go to bed together and he waits til I drop off before he stops reading. The light doesn't affect me.
My insomnia is a result of combo of things- but what is contributing to it also is my husbands snoring.
He wakes me up- then I can't get back to sleep.It's awfulMarch 12, 2010 at 5:39 pm #9738

Not sure if its ok to say but my answer is NO.If anything I am worse especially if i have had sex.
Then typical man falls asleep and i lay there getting annoyed not with him but the fact he passes straight out whereas i am more awake than ever!

I am an only child. For the most part, I have slept alone. Oh, yes, lovers have come and gone, but they certainly could not handle my insomnia. They either complain that i should be able to fall asleep with them, or they complain that I don't go to bed with them BECAUSE I HAVE CHRONIC INSOMNIA. What to do. What to do. The best companions to slumber with, in my opinion, are from the animal kingdom. My preference are felines. And I have six. They don't whine. They don't elbow you if your legs are restless, and they are very tolerant and calming. My soon to be X husband said to me once: If I were 8″ tall, furry, and walked on all fours, I'd get more attention!” He's right. He would have.
As far back as I can recall, the women and men in my family have always had separate bedrooms: My YiaYia and PaPou had slept separately, (and YiaYia had a LOCK on her door ;); my mom and dad had separate rooms; and my X and I had separate rooms. So, any comments? 😮
