Wasn't sure where to put this. Anyone else awake putting the world to rights in their head?

BeingACuntItsABingThing Thu 13-Apr-17 23:51:42

Nope just me then blush

Getabloominmoveon Thu 13-Apr-17 23:52:34

we haven't even gone to bed yet

avamiah Thu 13-Apr-17 23:53:03

I'm a late sleeper and up on MN .😀

BeingACuntItsABingThing Thu 13-Apr-17 23:54:08

I'm up now and I'm sure I'll be back at 2 am and 3 am and 4 am .😴

BeingACuntItsABingThing Thu 13-Apr-17 23:55:14

I tried to introduce a 10pm bedtime as I'm always up for the day at 6 but it isn't working angry

avamiah Thu 13-Apr-17 23:57:17

I'm in bed and to be honest this is when I respond to emails and do my food ordering and basically read the news and do my online shopping.
It's early by my standards and I've got 2 episodes of Master Chef to catch up on still.haha
It is Good Friday tomorrow so I'll probably watch them as no matter what time I fall asleep I'll still wake up at 7 am.

BeingACuntItsABingThing Fri 14-Apr-17 00:00:52

I was reading threads on here and my anxiety went a little crazy so I'm refraining from news blush

I'm searching for funny stuff to read blush

BeingA,
Have you got iPlayer and All4?
What about watching something , a film, box set .
I love All4, they have so many box sets to watch, you could easily fall asleep watching them.

sproutsmum Fri 14-Apr-17 00:10:50

Yup still up ,probably will be for a while yet ,Pinterest and Facebook and general mooching around mumsnet await

avamiah Fri 14-Apr-17 00:15:49

Sprouts,
Yes I have a quick look on FB and Pinterest but nothing more than 10 mins.

AvasMammy13 Fri 14-Apr-17 00:18:21

Same here. Sick of looking at the same things but trying not to get up and start things around the house. Exhausted!

avamiah Fri 14-Apr-17 00:23:07

AvasMammy13,

FB as a last resort.

I am working nights tonight, I look after children who rely on ventilation. This is the one time insomnia pays off.

avamiah Fri 14-Apr-17 01:13:27

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman,
It takes more than insomnia to care for children who are desperately ill.
I would call that dedication.
We never hear about nurses like yourself and the care that you provide to children so that they can remain at home with their mum and dad and brothers and sisters for as long as possible.
So Thank you .
❤️️

He,lo. Here at 4am awake and thirsty.
I had a bad accident a couple of weeks ago so Uncomfortable in bed.

Vstressedtenant Fri 14-Apr-17 04:33:25

Having a bad night with anxiety life falling apart.

So much admiration for those of you caring for others.

Vstressedtenant Fri 14-Apr-17 04:34:00

Travelledtheworld hope you feel better soon

user1491782574 Fri 14-Apr-17 04:38:43

Vatressedtenant - same here - not sure turning the light on and reading this helps, but it beats lying in the dark

Knittedfrog Fri 14-Apr-17 04:40:34

Another one whose problems are keeping them awake. It sucks, I love my sleep.

Feckerlino Fri 14-Apr-17 04:42:58

Awake here too. Been awake since 2.30am. Am now giving up on going back to sleep as i have to get up in an hour anyway 😴

user1491782574 Fri 14-Apr-17 04:43:22

Me too - just glad I've got a few days off to try and catch up. I've recently started anti depressants and I think they make things worse before they get better - just got to hope it's temporary

user1491782574 Fri 14-Apr-17 04:54:53

Sorry if I killed the chat with my comment - never posted on here before

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Fri 14-Apr-17 05:34:59

avamiah Thank you, I haven't had a chance to come back to this thread as little one has given me a good test of my skills tonight so I have only just read your comment.

user1491782574 I doubt you have killed it, it is just a quiet time of night even for the insomniacs amongst us. I hope your meds kick in soon.

Vstressedtenant Fri 14-Apr-17 08:37:24
