I Fell Asleep

I don't know where to put this post actually, so I'll drop it here. (Mods, if you nee to move it, that's fine).

Tonight I fell asleep in my chair. Sound asleep. My back was hurting (badly), and I just fell asleep.

My wife woke me up, and she said I was snoring. She said I should go to bed, and I did. I laid down in the bed and fell fast asleep.

I woke up (this morning?) and commented to her about how much better my back and hip felt. Then I put on my boots and told her I was going out to feed the cows. She was shocked...said the cows had already been fed, she'd even brought hay down for them (tonight). I said I knew that, but it was morning, and the cows needed to be fed, and I was late. She asked me what the heck I was talking about (????). I looked at my watch and it said it was 7:30, I even showed it to her. "Yeah, So??", she said.

I woke up, thinking it was morning, but it was night. My back felt so much better I was ready to go out and feed the cows, albeit late (normally I feed them at 4am). I was so tired, so exhausted, I fell asleep in my chair and then slept in our bed for a couple hours...and I thought it was tomorrow. I actually had to ask my wonderful bride 4 times if it was night or day, and even then I had to check my computer to see if it was AM, or PM. I had cooked dinner for her just hours before. My Gawd...I can't even believe I'm typing this right now. I was so tired, and so sore, I just lost all track of time.

I can't even believe it. FIL passed away last night, and I was in serious pain and tired beyond description...I just lost track of day and time.

I don't even know what else to say.

Sounds like the typical ‘tired-ass’ grown up. I’ve done the same thing. We all have. Nothing strange here…. Grief is a blessing believe it or not. It helps you heal at YOUR pace. Sleep as much as you can. Cry your a—off as you feed the cows. You’ll get through this.

Was a good sleep seems like when that happens to me it's better than if I rested a full night.

I just can't even believe it. I fell completely asleep, and I thought it was morning. It was still kind of light out, so I thought the sun was coming up (but it was going down).

I've been running on empty for so long now, I just lost track of time.

I just lost complete track of time.

Strange how that works. Sometimes I will take a nap in the late afternoon and dream for it seems like twelve hours then get up and start getting ready to go out in the morning and it is only eight oclock at night. Four hours of sleep with what seems like ten hours of dreaming and refreshed like I had gotten nine hours of sleep.

The drawback, I cannot go to sleep till about three in the morning, laying awake with all kinds of things going through my head. I usually get up in the morning and plan my day out...but that long nap makes everything screwed up. And yes, if I am really tired I do snore, if not tired, when I snore once I am wide awake wondering what the hell is going on.

Hope you can sleep tonight.

I did something like that once. Was working a warehouse job, came in wasted and laid down. Woke up a couple of hours later and it was sunset but i thought it was eaely nothing. Clock said something like 6:45. Family was watching tv. I thought they'd failed to wake me up for work, went into the living room ranting about why they didn't get be up and now I was late.

That just looked at me like I was mad.

Sounds like it has been another rough time for you recently. If you need some sleep, take it.

As for your back, do you usually wake up with a sore back in the morning? If so then you might consider getting a firmer bed. Maybe try sleeping on a floor with some limited padding to see if it makes it better or worst before investing in it? If sleeping in your chair helped put things back in place, go with what works.

Yeah you could try a firmer / harder bed like kwakakev already wrote.

When I was a young adult, during my apprentice ship as a confectionery, my foster dad ran into my room saying like, different language though

"Name, get up, "Day of Work"! You're late!" and it was 3am in the morning, I was already late 15 minutes and jumped on my bicycle without breakfast, headed towards the town, it was slightly raining too.

When I hit the place, everything was dark. Doors were locked, no cars, no noises from the ventilation. Then it dawned on me! It's sunday for godsake and the first of May, that is, "Day of Work" here, a holiday. Man I was pissed at him! When I arrived back home my foster dad was laughing and asking me where I just went??

And then I recognized that the truck and trailer was outside. 1. May we traditionally went to a racetrack, we spoke about it a week before and I forgot about it completely. Of course since I was so alert and awake, I had to drive.

He expected me to know that he's talking about the holiday, not that this is a work-day in the middle of the week. Duh.

Maybe the back pain is caused from staying still throughout the whole night. Maybe if you start waking up a couple times throughout the night to walk around for a minute, then your back won't hurt as bad once you eventually get up in the morning. I know waking up a few times during the night doesn't sound like much fun, but neither is waking up with pain so bad you can't get out of bed.(not sure if yours is ever that bad)

I worked 3rd shift for several years. (11pm - 7am). There were a few times when I woke up around +/- 6:30 P.M., and thought I had slept through my entire shift. I would go outside and try to find the Sun, but at certain times where I lived, that wasn't always easy to do. (Low enough that you can't actually see the Sun, but still high enough that the entire sky is still the same shade of blue)

That actually did happen a couple times when it really was morning though, and I actually had missed work. It is a nice feeling though when you wake up thinking you're late, but then realize you still have a few more hours left to sleep.

It's kind of ironic, the night before last I had actually slept in our guest room so my wife could get a good nights sleep. The bed in the guest room is as firm as a slab of granite. I thought that might help the back also. And yesterday the pain in my back and left hip was the worst it's been in a while. Maybe I slept wrong, I dunno, but yesterday I was exhausted and sore.

When I zonked out in my office chair yesterday and my wife woke me up I never even bothered to look at the time (or even outside). I think I was pretty much on autopilot. When I woke up later, I already had my boots on and was headed out the door when my wife asked me what the heck I was doing.

I hate when it happens but then I realize that I can go to sleep instead of a slave job which feels good.
It reminds me Johny Scoville who eats 4 to 6 super hot peppers to get an endorphine rush which can erase the back pain for most of the day. Sometimes your body releases these opiates on its own when it hurts too much

one of the lines is "is it a Sunday or a Monday, am I supposed to be at work?

Happened once, and tequila was involved.
