    Is is between the hours of 2am & 6am? Tell us what's keeping you awake.

    My excuse tonight- I've been out to a nightclub, and don't feel like being alone at the moment, so I've turned to MSN messenger for companionship.

    This is the third of these threads. I thought i was the only one who made these?

    At anyrate, i have plain insomnia. I just can't sleep. So i'm awake. You get used to it after a while.

    I've already slept. Now I have to go to work.

    5 o'clock, still awake.

    Am i at the point where this classifies as a medical problem yet?

    NO coffee, no caffeine. Nothing. Still awake.

    If you also cut out the alcohol and this sleeping pattern persists, then it might count as a medical problem.

    I need to take a week off and let myself phase shift back to a normal waking time. Unfortunately, the last time off was over Christmas and I was staying at my sister's house with a toddler (they are all morning people :grumpy:) so didn't get to let myself shift around the clock. That's the only way I can get myself onto a "normal" routine.

    I just finished a bowl of homemade chili with sour cream on top. And lurking around here, plus I'm off from work the entire week and getting paid for it
