    Default How many hours sleep do you get?

    ... and how many do you think you actually need?

    I'm shattered and I've only been up for just under two hours. I need at least seven hours or I feel like crap, but I'm not getting it at the moment. At best I'm probably getting five at night, but waking once in the middle for an hour so it's not a restful sleep. I'm having to sleep in the afternoon for an hour or so to catch up a bit.

    This is a difficult question for me. I get between four and seven hours most nights, with the odd eight to ten hours maybe once every weekend. It would be nice to have more regular sleeping hours but it just doesn't happen, especially at this time of year, as the heat is not helpful for getting a decent sleep. For a while recently I was getting a similar situation as you, getting off to sleep for an hour or two, then waking and being awake for two to three hours sometimes, then an hour or two late morning and feeling crap when I have to get up. When this happens it is usually due to stress from work, which is why I need to retire as soon as possible.

    Yeah stress does mess with your sleep. Do you sleep better when you're not at work?

    With me at the moment I think it's to do with my sleeping position. I only have two, laying on my back with my knees up and laying on my back with my knees down. I've tried to give it some variety by putting one arm up above my head, but there's not much else I can do at the moment. So before I'd naturally roll over when one position got uncomfortable and then just go back to sleep, but now I can't roll over so I end up getting up and sitting up for a while.

    I never sleep through

    I probably get about 5 or 6, it's definitely not enough for me

    If I'm watching tv at weekend I'll often fall asleep for 10 or 15 mins and not even remember feeling sleepy

    Yes, I sleep easily when I'm not working. I still get the odd night of insomnia but not 10 nights out of a fortnight like I had recently. That was 100% caused by work.

    I can't sleep on my back, I have to sleep on one side or the other.

    I usually lay half on my front and half on my side, so that's why I'm not sleeping too well with the change of position. I seem to be healing well now, so hopefully in another weeks time I can change back to my normal position, so I should get a more restful sleep.

    Ah yes, I was forgetting that you have to sleep that way at the moment because of the operation.

    I think I managed about seven hours last night, waking three times, but I still feel crap. Just one night of undisturbed sleep would be heaven!

    My sleep has doubled from about 2-3 hours on average to 5.

    2-3 hours, is that all? I'd not be able to function on as little as that.
