Cheers Balletomaine! Good gracious you Os with vivid dreams
. The stories my DH and DD tell of their dreams (sometimes I get weird graphic ones too). Glad that you're having nice ones Possum.
You're right to be worried about weight eating lots of food before sleep, I've put a little on lately cos I started having supper too late but that's another thing. Sometimes the next day I feel like I don't need as much breakfast and need some extra exercise to work it off. A wholemeal snack before bed for me or I get acid reflux. Everyone has to listen to their bodies and we are all different! Makes life interesting!
Four hours sleep is no good at all for your adrenals and the rest of you.
Is there a way to fix that? Like could you get your fibroids removed? or change your shifts to daytime. Something? Just worried that lack of sleep can really build up and cause other health problems down the line.
