    Kids, it's now 4:30AM here in CST, and I just got off IM with a friend of my son's; we were chatting for 2 1/2 hrs. I'm trying to go to bed after a horrid night (I DON"T WANT TO GO TO WORK TOMORROW!!!), but I just couldn't go to bed without checking in here! Now church is in about 6 hours; dang! I better get to bed!

    I am guilty I admit it. I suffer from a condition known as EMA/ Early Morning Awakening. People with various medical conditions like depression, respiratory and urinary tract problems suffer with it. People who have it have no trouble getting to sleep but frequently wake between 1am and 4am and then have hard time falling back to sleep. In my case I am fortunate because I usually fall back to sleep in 2 to 3 hours. Some people just can't fall asleep until the next night when they start they cycle all over again. I spend sometime on the computer or watch something I recorded on tv the previous evening. In my case this happens about 3 to 5 nights a week. I go to sleep at about 11pm, wake up 2 to 5 hours later, am up for 2 to 3 hours and then fall asleep for a couple more. I actually get my 8 hours but broken up. I have to say that the days that follow the nights where I go to bed and sleep straight though are my most productive. That happens 2 or 3 times a week. My lung specialist keeps bugging me to have sleep studies. I keep putting him off because I can't stand sleeping anywhere but in my own bed.

    Cheeze...I thought I was the only one who does this...except I usually fall out aroung 8:30-9:00 and wake up around 1 am...and can't get back to sleep until 4 or 5. My "alternate" sleep cycle is to sleep 2 hours, up for 1, sleep 2 hours.

    The ONLY thing that has ever helped with it is Estrogen...but being the great patient that I am I missed my annual GYN apointment 6 months ago and my wonderful doctor is holding my script for ransom until I come see him for a Pap.

    well, geez, now I don't feel so all alone. I usually sleep four then i'm up for a few, then I go back for 3 or 4 (and get at least 2).
    Been doing it for years...
    Haven't done the sleep study yet, I'm working up the nerve, thanks to JennyP.
