    Meds

    By nature I tend to sleep early-ish; I'm nodding by 10PM.  Add in some medications that make me sleepy and I'm out by 8!That's a good thing, though.  'Cause if I try to push it any beyond that I won't be able to haul my buns out of bed in the morning.

    I Go To Sleep Early

    I go to sleep early every night!  I've tried coffee and it is very frustrating.  I've done this for years.  I get up at 6am each morning and no matter what I do all day, work hard or lay around, I'm asleep by 8 or 8:30pm every night. Why do i do this?
