Why am I up at 6:50am?

I mean, technically I went to bed at 11:30pm, so I got seven hours and change, which is definitely enough, but... seriously, why the hell am I awake? It's seven am. I'm not even on passing familiarity with that time, at least not since I was in high school and insanely getting up at 2-3am to write.

Grr.

Damn it, body, don't you dare yawn. I got up five minutes ago and you were all "Yay! Awake!" I'm not going back to sleep now. And last night, you were crying about "I'm tired, you were mean to me today."

Bloody HELL.

Apologies if you have e-mail notification; I used the wrong icon the first time.

*comforts*

I've been having trouble sleeping through the night while being exhausted all day, too. I keep waking up at 5:45, no matter what time I go to bed. It woulnd't be a problem if I could make myself go to sleep at 10 like I'm supposed to, but I'm typically going to bed at midnight and taking half an hour to an hour to fall asleep.

So, yeah, I feel your pain. *comforts*

The thing is, though, as far as I can tell I'm sleeping fine. I wake up at 7-8 feeling wonderful. I slept between seven and eight hours. Then, within an hour, my energy leeches from me and I start yawning and considering going back to bed.

I decided to shortcut it this morning by falling back on my old standby: cleaning. God, at this rate the house is going to be spotless. Not that it couldn't use just such a cleanup.

That *is* strange. I really don't know what that could be. Talked to your therapist about it?

If I had a wish, it would be for my body to have a mental off switch. When I lie down, I want to be able to hit that switch and go to sleep.

If I had a second wish, it would be that my body would obey a reasonable standard with regards to its complaints. If I go to bed at 2 and my body doesn't go to sleep till 4, it's not MY fault if it's tired the next day. Similarly, it's not YOUR fault you wake up early and then get tired, why should YOU have to deal with it?
