Can't sleep

Any other old farts have trouble staying asleep?


I get up to pee, and go back to bed all jacked up.
What's up with that?

Who wants to go camping this Saturday night?
Meet us at Binns Hill OHV staging area near Hood River at 3pm this Saturday. Let's party.....I'll bring the tunes....

We're only as old as we feel.

Is that why I'm always up at this time of the day? I'm an old fart? Yep I can relate to that but there are advantages to being up this time of day. Everything is so quiet.

Early morning it the best part of the day.

“Morning brings back the heroic ages. There was something cosmical about it; a standing advertisement, till forbidden, of the everlasting vigor and fertility of the world. The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour. Then there is least somnolence in us; and for an hour, at least, some part of us awakes which slumbers all the rest of the day and night.”


― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Insomnia

A brief overview
There are actually three types
Type 1: those that can't get to sleep.
they tend to worry all the time; Have obsessive thoughts; disturbed sleep; they tend toward depression; easily irritated

type 2: Have muscle tension, feelings of being overwhelmed; they might have panic attacks; tend toward burn out

Type 3: Hyper vigilant; sensitive to any noise at night; startled or shocked sensation on sudden awakening.

Causes: hormone balance, blood sugar regulation, mineral deficiencies, poor adrenal function among others

Perhaps the above is more information than anyone wants to know about sleep problems but sleep is super important for brain health along with weight gain and overall vitality
There's always a reason. Find the reason. If a doc just wants to give you a pill and not find the cause, find someone who will.

I quit caffeine 10/1 and am amazed at how much better I sleep. As much as I love coffee it's not the best thing for you. Also, don't mess with the computer/Ipad or anything like that before bedtime.

I had that problem several years ago. Racing mind, keeping me from more than 2-3 hours per day. Doc gave me a way low dose of an anti-seizure med. The calming of the synapse firing let me reset the pattern, no sleeping med hangover or side effects.

When I used to drink my glass of red wine every evening I'd wake up to pee in the middle of the night and sometimes not get back to sleep. Once I quit the wine (replacing it with a single toke of Indica) I sleep great and no more getting up to pee. I'm 61.

A very receptive wife no doubt. To awake & pleasure you, just so you can get back to sleep. .
I had better be defending myself & anything I hold dearly...before awaking my wife...during sleeping mode!
