It's 2.50am should I get up?!

Mar 08, 2016 8:49 PM

I can't sleep at all and I'm scared to use my hypnosis app incase I don't get up for work if I fall asleep. I'm so tired but thinking should I just get up now incase I don't wake when I need too. One of those nights!! 😞

I say anything that helps u sleep you.should. set an alarm to wak u when u need to get up. But right now yu need to sleep.

I'm just so worried I won't wake up. Sometimes I'm so tired that when I finally get over to sleep I sleep through the alarm or roll over and switch it off without knowing I'm doing it as I'm still half asleep. I feel like when I explain this to people they think it's just laziness but they don't understand how little I do sleep so when I do get over its so so hard to get me up.

I understand is it possible to just call into work sounds like u need to rest anyway

Spiritualgirl, I hear you. I am the same way. My sleep is horrible. I end up setting several alarms...at least one across the room so I must get up. You have to get some rest.

Hey guys I managed to get an hour and a half sleep and on my way into work. Will see if I can make it through the day if not I will ask my boss can I go home. She also suffers Fibro so hopefully she will be understanding. Thank u guys for chatting to me and ur advice. It helps to talk to people when ur feeling so desperate and don't know what to do xxx

Yep, I've been awake all night as well. Pain and that stupid 3 hour nap did me in.

I moved my alarm out of arms reach. If I have to get up to turn it off, I may as well keep going that direction and get a shower!
It's so weird, I woke at about 3am here with pain in a very different area than normal. I blame these new pt exercises, I have so much more pain after I do them!

I got up, had a shower made it to work and then got the worst headache and asked my boss could I go home. Been in bed most of the day x
