    Any one have trouble getting to sleep?
    What type of sleeping aids do you use and how effective are they.
    I also wanted something that didn't make one feel foggy when they wake up.

    And Legal.
    Don't care about the DOT or UPS since i am retired.

    I'm lucky in that I've never had trouble falling asleep. Stone cold sober or with a buzz on-it don't matter. I'm out within a couple minutes of my head hitting the pillow. I've had fishing buddies who told me they have never seen someone who was out in such a hurry. Lucky I guess. My wife can toss and turn all night. Since I've retired its even better.

  4. I usually only sleep 5-6 hours a night. My dad is the same way.

    Yeah ... I'm tired of getting to sleep at 6 am - 9 am and getting up 2 pm or 4 pm.

    Maybe that's just your natural sleep pattern. They say everyone has one. Mine is from 1 or 2 a.m. to 8 to 10 a.m. Even when I was working I was always up until at least 1 a.m. and as long as I got 6 or 7 hours sleep I was fine.

    I had to be up by 5 or 5:30 am when I worked ... then, I went to sleep around 11 or so.

    I think mine is my natural sleeping pattern but it does not fit in with society ... even when retired.
     
  14. Also lack of sleep is a sign of mania.

    Unfortunately my Grandkids inherited my sleep patterns. The little heathens seem to never fall asleep

    I don't remember having mania.

    ma·ni·a
    ˈmānēə/
    noun

    1. mental illness marked by periods of great excitement, euphoria, delusions, and overactivity.
    But then, I did work for UPS.

  20. If you can be faithful in a monogamous relationship it's doubtful, probably just a high sex drive.
