    Waking Up Is Hard To Do. That's A Song Right ?

    One of my biggest problems has always been waking up. ( that's so funny a friend of mine sent me a wake up gesture today LOL) Waking up has never been easy for me, but since I have been taking meds for the past 12 years, it's worse. I wake up and immediately have to pop pills or...

    I hate waking up in the mornings.

    As soon as I wake up and get out of bed, I go into this mid-deep trance like state where I just stare at whatever is directly in front of me without taking my eyes off it. When I'm like this it takes a lot of physical Will power to start moving again. It's almost like my...

    "Good Morning" is a contradiction of terms.

    So is "Bright and Early" for that matter. My brain works on low power in mornings so if it's early I'm not very bright. I was so tired one time I was about to put the milk away after eating cerial and suddenly nature called, so I went to the bathroom. Guess where I left the milk...

    Slow To Start

    slow to start, in fact stunned would be a good word after I get up.  I often bump into things, don't like to talk to anybody and need quiet time, me time and space ... given a few hours and a good start, my day usually goes well and I am happy.  If anyone screws this up...

    I don't do mornings very well - In fact you

    have to kick me out of bed to get me up. Also the fact that I have to get outta bed at 6:00am doesn't help.

    I hate mornings. Every morning I wake up to my

    alarm clock but it is such a struggle trying to actually get up. Even when I go to bed earlier I still wake up feeling incredibly tired.

    Definitely Not A Morning Person

    I used to stay up late chatting with people until 3am or later years ago.  I can't cope with being up that late now, but I'm still happier being up late at night than having to get up early in the morning.
