I wish.  If I only had to get up once a night, it would be a good night.

I wake up at least twice per night to go to the bathroom.  I'm lucky in that I can always get back to sleep.

I wake up every 1 to 3 hours mostly because pain increases on the side of my body that is pressed against the mattress and I have to change positions to reduce it.

 

You are getting sleepy.

#6 is one of the Twelve Cell salts and it's made by Hylands, which is a Homepathic medicine.

Whenever it's hard to sleep, to quiet the mind, I take #6.  

It  usually means that your body is lacking that cell salt.  They are actually 12 cell salts.  The best one is Bioplama- it's all the 12 cells salts  combined.  I do take that one everyday.

Rarely sleep through the night. At least once I have to empty my bladder. 

I went to a “pot” doctor at a legal clinic here in Florida and started using CBD plus THC drops. I usually can bank on 6-7 hours. 

I also do breathing exercises to help drift off and that usually works.

If I still have trouble drifting off, I have some vapes also bought at a legal dispensary, and I smoke perhaps 3-4 puffs of Indica. That puts me out really fast.

the reason I don’t use it nightly is that it is a bit rough on my throat.

i am very glad I am able to afford legal pot.

Yes I do. Sometimes I don't sleep at all.   Between getting up to pee about 3 times and the dog wanting out a couple times. It drives me nuts. I have neuropathy in my feet and the pain, even with pain med, is excrutiating and keeps me awake. Found out I have a need for a CPAP machine to to me stopping breathing. Dr. gaveme some meds to sleep and new med for the neuropathy. I sleep a little better. except when thedog wants out.

Not as well as I used to. It bothered me enough that I went to the doctor. I was tested for sleep apnea, but I don't have it (thank goodness).  But, I've been using a sleep diary and following some simple rules. 1. Go to bed only when you are sleepy.  2. The bed is not for anything but sex and sleep--no reading, watching TV or eating in the bed. 3. Darken the bedroom (drapes, blinds, etc.) and get rid of/cover up electronic lights (all those bright digital clocks, green/red/blue status lights, etc., etc.).  4. No looking at any electronic screen at least 1 hour before bed (2 if you can swing it).  That means no TV or smartphone/cellphone screens!. 5. Use white noise if it helps (a ceiling fan can perform this function or get yourself a little white noise machine or use an app on your phone--just don't have the screen visible!). 6. Use meditation to relax. 7. For those of you like me whose brains/worries try to kick in when you lie down, you may want to try to establish a "worry time" during the day where concerns are addressed during that time and not at any other! 8. Exercise regularly. 9. If you've been sleeping on the same old bed for years, perhaps it is time to get another one that is more comfortable for your age!

 

I've been doing better although there is still room for improvement. 

 

I advise anyone with sleep issues to not put off seeing a doctor and/or trying something new. Your overall health is impacted greatly by lack of sleep!

I'm 63 years old and have slept less than 8 hours a night for several years since menopause.  I sometimes have trouble going to sleep even if I feel sleepy.  I've tried sleeping pills, but do not want to rely on pills. I've tried all the recommendations, keeping bedroom cool & dark, breathing techniques, counting backwards, lavender diffusers, chamomille tea, etc.  When I get to sleep, I only sleep a couple of hours & wake up either hot or needing to go to the bathroom,  I get up, go to the bathroom, go back to bed and then sometimes go back to sleep, but wake up again in another couple of hours. Then when I get sleepy again it is time to get up to get ready to go to work.  I get 4-6 hours on weekday nights and maybe 6-7 hours on the weekends.  Everything I read says it is bad for my overall health, but I haven't found anything that helps get more hours or deep sleep.
