Here it is, the middle of the afternoon for me, and I am drained. I keep walking around this house thinking of all the things I should be accomplishing. Instead this record is on repeat saying, I am so tired, I just can't do it right now.
Insomnia has been my constant companion for years now. Sometimes it hits by not being able to go to sleep, other times I wake in the middle of the night WIDE awake. Wide awake as in I feel like I could jump out of bed and run a marathon. I hate those nights.....
It comes in waves. For months I'll sleep like a baby, then it hits. My first night I just doze never going deep under, then comes weeks of hell.
My recent bout has me waking at 3am with marathon running energy. (If I wouldn't wake the whole house I would put it to good use.) Problem is, I can't sleep during the day to make up for what I lost. I have children that need attended to. I have meals to cook, laundry to do, and errands that need ran.
I remember reading on ATS a couple years ago about the body needing some sort of nutrients if you wake up at specific times of the night. I did a search on ATS, and most of the results were about paranormal 3am experiences. (I won't go into my paranormal world right now. I don't think this is the cause at this time.)
Anybody remember where the chart of needed nutrients went? I am willing to try anything at this point! I have tried all sorts of remedies recommended by dr.s, friends, and family. Nothing helps....
Thanks in advance for any info.

the Power of Sleep
When specific times are involved this has to do with the acupuncture meridian system and its relationship to certain organs at those times. ...Between 1am and 3am is liver. This is the most common time a person wakes up and is due to many reasons.
