    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?

    It's 9:30 Now And I'm Exhausted...

    but I usually go to bed around 8:30 or 9:00. I'm up at 5:30 and my son is up at 6:30 with his alarm. Mornings are definitely my best time. I do the dishes, get lunches packed, fold some laundry, shower, spend time with my son. Evenings are a write off. All I can do is...

    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.

    It's A Habit

    I got to sleep at around 8pm. By 6pm i feel exhausted and 7 i feel drowzy. But it's a habit, a habit that started out as a way of hiding from a world i could bare no longer living in. My parents used to fight and argue a lot when i was younger. My mom and dad both worked all day...

    Zzzzzzzzzzz.........

    I am definitely a morning, even afternoon person. I love going to bed early, sometimes as early as 8 pm, and sleep 8-9 hours. I feel very refreshed in the morning and ready to take the world. Late at night my brain is frazzled and I cannot really concentrate on any mental...
