For as long as I can remember, sleeping at nights has been a battle for me. I sleep past 2am most nights and wake up before 7am. In between, I toss and turn, then I take a stroll around my house, then sleep on the couch, then come back to bed. I don’t know what it is. My Mattress and Pillows are so comfortable and my blanket is so cozy and lovely, but I do not get why I keep waking up at nights. Maybe I am thinking too much, maybe a lot is on my mind, maybe I am thinking about so many people in my life. During the day I feel energetic, then I take a sudden power nap during the early afternoon for 15 minutes. I sometimes have a hard time falling asleep in my bed.
I went to the doctor about my sleep habits, he said that you are probably going through insomnia or you are probably thinking too much at night. Those can be the factors. I need to just sleep for a good 8 hours straight without waking up, but that is not possible. I am thinking of setting up an appointment at the sleep clinic to determine what is going on with me. My parents tell me I never snore or anything which is a good sign, but I need to get checked out. I am starting to freak out. I keep having these scenarios in my head that I want to happen, and I keep focusing on happy things, and that helps me fall asleep for a little while, then I am up again after 1-2 hours. I am going crazy. I don’t know what is happening to me.
This has been happening in the past 1-2 years, but now it’s become more serious and I feel like its getting a lot worse. I don’t know how I just get out of bed and walk around my house, and end up on the couch. I think it maybe sleep walking too mixed with it. Like I said, I have a super comfortable mattress, pillows, blanket, and I keep the blinds in my room closed at nights so I don’t see light, but I need to sleep with a bit of light. I sometimes fall asleep in front of the computer too for 10 minutes there, 5 minutes there, then wake up again. What are your opinions on what I should do? I know doctor and sleep clinic, but what do you think the factor maybe?
I keep searching the internet on sleeping disorders, and there is so much to absorb and I don’t want to get immune to sleeping pills or any pills for that matter. I need natural remedies that won’t effect my health….
I am out of clues on what it can be. Getting an appointment with my doctor this week. I need to get some more answers.
