How much do you sleep?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes very broken sleep from nightmares. But often 12 or more hours when I'm feeling low. I just feel like I can't get up and waste so many days sleeping until the afternoon.

Same thing with me ... but with a nap sometime in the day.  I wish though I could sleep the entire night though.

 

 

I've totally been known to take a 30-minute cat nap during my lunch break at work. It's awful, I need something that will keep me up. Even my Adderall doesn't do it these days!

Ha! I took a nap today at work. I leaned back on my chair and fell asleep. Unfortunately my coworker woke me up when she knocked on my door.

There have been times when I don't sleep at night so instead I show up early and sleep for a few hours in the late morning.

The shit we do to get some damn rest. I am at the point where I can easily fall asleep anywhere, any weird position. It's crazy.

My naps usually are about an hour long, like almost to the minute.  That amount of time helps me get through the day.  Sometimes I've needed up to 3 of those naps/day.  Not much, but sometimes I just can't make it through the day with only one nap, like when I am in a severe depression or physically exhausted or something.

I feel like I didn't properly nap if I don't sleep at least 2 1/2 hours. Ideally, I'd prefer 3-4 hours.

Same here! I worked from home today (thank god for -5 degree weather - no one showed up) and I took a 3 hour nap after the phone meeting we had.

Euthymic I need 9-10 hours with Modafinil... huge improvement from 12-13 hours before starting it. When manic it's more like 4-6 hours, and when depressed it can get up to 20 hours.

On meds I get about 10 hours on average, without meds it can range from no sleep at all to 3 hours.

About 9-12hours seems like what our body 'wants'. When we give it less than that we usually do awfully. But often we'll stay up all night, either due to nerves/adrenaline/stress or to simply 'cycle it back round' to 9pm-10pm ish, but that usually only lasts a day or two before it does whatever it wants.

Without Trazadone, or something equally as sedating, I can not sleep at all. There was nights that I let my meds lapse, and didn't have anything to take; and I literally laid in my bed with my eyes closed THE ENTIRE NIGHT and never fell asleep. I guess I have to have my brain shut down with meds to be able to sleep or I'll just lay there all night with my mind going 100 miles an hours.

I get 6-7 hours depending on what drug combo I'm taking. When I luck out and sleep for 8 hours, I feel great. Less than that, and I'm sluggish if functional. My real problem now is that I just got an APAP machine, and the mask tends to keep me awake. Still working on that.
