Lousy everything from the waist down hurts when I lay down, so everything was on fire in my hips and knees last night.

i try not to explain it b/c it's difficult. i have to go for quantity over quality. i might be in bed for 12 hours. but 1-2 of that was trying to wind down. maybe an hour of yawning and getting comfortable. maybe bits of sleep here and there. then 7 hours of HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER COMING SOON CLIFFHANGERS CHASES FIRE DEATHS OH MY... then a bunch of tossing and turning b/c i'm not really asleep .. i'm running in my dreams ... then maybe come to enough to realize i'm angry or annoyed or maybe relaxed and warm and just snuggle or hide for another couple of hours.

i can't honestly answer how much sleep did you get last night... b/c well some nights none. more often than not it's none. and i get up more tired than when i laid down.

i can usually track how many hours i was in bed. but that's about it.

Wow! I am never asleep long enough to even have dreams! You guys are something else! I had 3 broken at best and not even sure of that. I am waking up in severe back pain that narcotics can't seem to control. i get no more than an hour in at any one time and not even that sometimes. Its being investigated, but tests take a very long time here because of the waiting lists for everything. There used to be some people posting on here reporting how much sleep their fitbit says they got -somehow it figures out the number of wakeups too.

When one door closes, I simply kick down another one!! Never Give up!

my dreams are far more entertaining than my awake hours. i purposefully stay in bed just to dream some more. but i'm not asleep the whole time. just this in-between relaxation state

I have dreams all night - they'd be other people's nightmares. My Service Dog wakes me up from nightmares. I was asked to keep a dream journal, but it took too many hours to write down the dreams!
I'm new to SparkPeople and keep seeing the ads for FitBit, which is supposed to keep up with how much you really do sleep. Somehow that's supposed to help you figure out how to sleep better. I know caffiene keeps me up all night or gives me really special dreams. I eat a snack a little before bed so I don't wake up in the night with the munchies. I have some other things I work at, like puzzles or reading in the living room at least for 1/2 hour before going to bed, no TV and straight to bed, etc.
Is anybody using the FitBit and how is it helping you identify solutions?

i was probably in bed for 12 hours ... part of it by choice

instead of the usual dreams about chases, killers, drama, etc... i had an interesting all night escapade

i forget the very beginning but i was out on a date of sorts and we ended up at my favorite band's concert - all kinds of fun melee. started mingling with celebs and supermodels that were there. ended up in limos and galavanting around with them. actually made personal connections, etc... then we ended up in some room with a basketball team and out of nowhere locked eyes with this guy and my heart melted.. it went on from there .. i could include so many details but i kinda don't want to b/c it just felt so special and mesmerizing .. and i don't want words to ruin it. ... is it possible to fall in love in a dream? =)

Ugh, no idea how long in actual hours, but I laid down at 2:30, I must have gotten up to pee about 6 times(it seems) and didn't get up until 5:30 (Mates let me sleep) still sleepy.

sorry ladies :( right there with you. My XRays for my back, hips and knees were okay, so my Dr. is going to rule out cancer as a possible source of the pain in my back that keeps waking me up. Have no idea how long i will wait for the bone tests, usually takes a very long time

Troubled sleep with nightmares, my friends little grandson is missing in the wilds of Az and he went missing from a cabin in the mountains is what I understand, he's only 7, so was up at night praying and worrying about this little boy, so it was a troubled sleep and nightmares.

a little over 6 hours broken! I got up and took extra narcotics to ease the pain so I could sleep longer, sort of worked, but then I didn't have to get up and go any where either

it was noticeably quieter here last night. stupid trazodone takes 2-3 hours to make me feel kind of sleepy though.. then maybe a couple hours of sleep. still dreaming actively though. reluctantly got up and hatefully drank a caffeinated Sunkist and had mom drive me to my doctor appointment. i think i am going to stop the traz b/c i cannot live with this level of zombie-daytime-groggy crap.

about 10 minutes after I laid down the upstairs neighbors plugged a guitar or something into an amp and played from about 11p to 6am. i tossed and turned every 10-20 minutes.

mom & I both filed a formal complaint with the office today. i hope the other neighbors did as well. normally i don't file complaints but it has been TOO MUCH! ... the stomping, tromping, slamming, banging, sliding, rearranging, building, pounding, guitar, parties, etc etc ... TOO MUCH!!!

I actually slept pretty good. I didn't get into bed until about 11:30 pm but once I got in there I slept about 5 hours before I woke up. That's a lot of continuous sleep for me, I usually only get about 2 or 3 hours before I wake up. I think I was extra tired last night.

I had about three or so very broken hours. I have had five joint replacements so far -they do give you a new lease on life. Problem is my body is falling apart faster then the Dr.'s can fix it :P

I only got 5 hours of sleep last night. Got home at 12:30, couldn't undwind until 2:30 and then had to get up to go to Church (Holy Day of Obligation). I am so tired. I don't think it helps that I had a few adult beverages and I have noticed that that really messes up my ability to sleep. I should be able to sleep like a baby tonight.

I woke up four or five times, and awoke at 6:30 unable to fall back asleep despite not falling asleep until around 1:30. I was able to nap for an hour and a half this morning though. Feeling much better.
