Sleeping at night

It's not helping.

My sleep pattern is all fubar. I find myself waking up at 4:30 AM and most times just laying there in bed till the alarm at 6:00 AM. This is after I have fallen asleep sometime after 1:00 AM.

Last week during work I got this annoying buzzing headache that made my eyes water trying to look at anything akin to writing. I ended up going home sick and sleeping most of the day.

That night I hit the sack around 9:00 and slept to the alarm only to awaken to a nauseous head pounding sensation when I sat up. I attributed it to a lack of sleep. By Friday evening I was much better, thanks to a dark room and ear plugs.

There are a lot of unknowns coming down the road. My job being primary. Tina's job has some stability issues as well. We are not in a terrible situation. Just an uncertain one.

Sorry you have to deal with that. I am lucky my headaches USUALLY only occur in the daytime. Although there are some mornings that I wake up with one around 6am and those days don't end up being very good days. The headache tends to fade and return all throughout the day...ick. So, I feel for you with the head pounders. Have you tried a more reasonable bedtime? I try to get to bed between 10 and 10:30 if I have to get up in the morning. I do the late nights only when I can sleep in. I also have tried some Kava Kava and Valerian to help myself relax for sleep. Even if you don't have trouble falling asleep the supplement can actually help you stay asleep. Good sleep is definitely a must!
