Every week or two I have a ” no sleep” night. I get out of bed,as suggested,many times during the night- to no avail! These nights are not preceded by anything particularly stressful or in anyway different than other days.My insomnia is a bit all over the place– some weeks are worse than other weeks. I generally get about 4hours of sleep a night.
Thank you for your support, Martin I normally go to bed at 11pm and get out of bed at 6am. Too much time in bed,right? I really find it hard to keep myself busy at night- I’m not in the mood to do anything other than watching the television, which makes me nod off! I have decided to do a series of insomnia paintings to while away the time. I did my first one during my last no sleep night earlier this week. I generally feel fine after 4 hours of sleep,but I do think that an extra hour would be beneficial.
