Why is my sleep pattern so variable??

I woke up after going to bed at 05:00am, normalish time for me. It helps having my partner in Florida. I normally get up around 10:00am of 11:000am. 4-5 Hours sleep!

But if I go to bed say 11:00pm, I will be asleep until 2:00am. Why can I not Have to fight for sleep? Perhaps if I was in the States with Barry, I might be ok? xx

  • HI suzy,

    Do you take anything to help you sleep hun?

    I had horrible sleep patterns two years ago, i used to be awake constantly in bed then day came and all i wanted to do was sleep, but still couldnt manage anymore than half an hour.

    I begged my gp to do something as i had kids and i was no use to them. She tried me on amitriplyn and it helps me so much.

    Its not alright for everybody and somepeople i have heard it doesnt work atall.

    I hope you find something that helps as its horrible not sleeping, you can join diddles club, as she never sleeps. :(

    hugs, kel xxxx

  • Hi Jazher. Yes I do ! I have Amitriptyline 50mg . I will join her club, as I seem to survive on just a few hors here and there. ( I am waiting for Diddles to Ask me to join) Lol!! having little ones is stressfull enough. but no sleep too?...for get that! (Did you ever try the whisky bottle?) Haha!

  • Hi suzy,

    I am on 75mg of amitriplyn, it must be hard work taking it and it not working. :(

    I like vodka lol. Yes i do have few weekends where vodka is needed too and i wake up every morning with a hangover anyway so a proper hangover doesnt affect me any worse lol.
