One-third of Americans are losing sleep over the state of the U.S. economy and other personal financial concerns, according to a new poll released by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF). The poll suggests that inadequate sleep is associated with unhealthy lifestyles and negatively impacts health and safety. NSF's Sleep in AmericaTM poll reveals striking disparities in the sleep patterns, health habits and quality of life between healthy and unhealthy Americans. Those in good health are two-times more likely than those in poor health to work efficiently, exercise or eat healthy because they are getting enough sleep. The number of people reporting sleep problems has increased 13 percent since 2001. In the past eight years, the number of Americans who sleep less than six hours a night jumped from 13 percent to 20 percent, and those who reported sleeping eight hours or more dropped from 38 percent to 28 percent. "It's easy to understand why so many people are concerned over the economy and jobs, but sacrificing sleep is the wrong solution," said David Cloud, CEO of the National Sleep Foundation. "Sleep is essential for productivity and alertness and is a vital sign for one's overall health."

Everyday i go to work there is almost nothing to do. It's dead slow. I've never seen anything like this before.
Losing sleep, hair is falling out, the stress is killing me, and on top of that I have a baby on the way.
And now the FDIC is saying they may go insolvent. Our money will no longer be guaranteed.
This sucks nixie.
I'm worn out. I try not to worry but i can't help it.
