I have to say that it really crimps my style to be advised to be in bed by 11 p.m. every night... sheesh... I'm a nightowl B... how am I ever going to get all this info read if I can't stay up and read when it's quiet and everyone ELSE has gotten out of my face!!!     Even the cats have stopped demanding something... brush me mommy... my brekkies are all gone mommy... could I have some fresh water mommy... NO, they're sound asleep... They sleep all day AND night... well, I'm not sure about all night because I do eventually get to bed...

ANYWHO... 11 p.m. SHEESH... I have three minutes...

I think it is a B thing.  I don't ever want to go to sleep. If I could, I'd be awake all the time. I'm an artisan and my shop is adjoining my house.  I'd be in there all the time if I didn't have to eat and rest.  

I force myself to go to bed at 11 pm (if I'm lucky) and 11:30 pm if I wait until I'm actually starting to feel sleepy.  Sapphi, we would really be better off if we got in bed by 10 pm, but don't look to me as a role model. I'd be happiest going to bed at midnight and getting up at 8:30 am, but it starts to catch up with me.  I feel healthier if I do get in bed by 11 pm and up at 7:30 am.

of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Well then I am the odd B  Victoria   I loooooove to sleep.

I go to bed by 22 at the latest
( In winter I often starts going to bed around 21 and reads for a while in bed
- but then again I have to be up by 6  most days.

IF I could choose
I would sleep from 22.30/23 to 8   That is my natural sleep cyclus.
so 8 hours sleep in summer and aroun 8,5-9 in winter.

I could be a night owl. I love the quietness of it. I do however feel my best if I am to bed before 11 and up early around 6 or 7. I still get some quiet time in the morning. My night owl son does however, quite often, disturb my sleep.

I have to set a sleep curfew on myself also.  I watch the 10 PM news, then get ready for bed & read until between 11 PM & 11:30.  I’d read later but I get up at 5:30 AM Monday – Thursday.  The weekends I’ll wake up anywhere between 5:30 AM & 8:00 AM.

Nope need to be in bed by 10pm( sometimes 9pm), cause no matter what time I go to bed I wake up at 5am.

I need lots of sleep.

I was going to post the other day that I was born a 2nd shift person. My mother said I never wanted to got to bed as a small child.  When I was in school, I frequently missed at least my first class. My natural sleeping hours are 1-1:30 to 9-9:30 now.  I do go to bed by 11, though, just to wind down and go to sleep by 1-ish.  I watch TV from 11-1-ish.  I know all of the books say you shouldn't and I never watch anything that I am very much interested in...no who-done-it's where I have to see the end of it.  If I didn't watch TV I would just lay there wide awake and that would drive me mad.  I'd think of too many interesting and fun things to get up and do if I had to lay there.

My husband (an A warrior) has always been able to go to sleep by about 10 and get up about 6:30-7.  My sister, (an A teacher) frequently stays up half the night and still functions.  I cannot function without my sleep.  

Most B's I know are super, super protective of their sleep.  Sleep, or the lack of it, is a central issue in their lives. Not that they get more or less than anyone necessarily, but they and their mate (if they have one) deal with the issue more than other people I know.  

I am always amazed with the ability of an A to sail along with little sleep and not even talk about it constantly.

I am fortunate that I have been able to adust my life to my sleep schedule.  College, I took later classes when possible, worked 2nd shift out of college, own my own business the last 27 yrs.  I wish everyone who struggles to get their sleep could work the schedule that their bodies want.

When I was a kid I did NOT want a nap... did not want to go to bed at 8 p.m....what's the sense of lying there awake, just makes me more awake and aggravated.

I've been struggling with some crying problems for the last three years since the economic collapse... I've needed to sleep in the afternoon so I just kicked back in a recliner and snoozed... but my natural rhythm is sleep around 1-2 a.m. and up at 8-9 a.m.  And since I've been on the B diet (no wheat, tomatoes, chicken, peanuts), I haven't been tired in the afternoon... but I still can't kick the crying problem... I've been wondering if my adrenals are depleted from all the worry and depression...

Victoria, I'm with you... I'm a quilter and I could stay up REALLY late working on my quilts... I know I'm tired when I start making mistakes... then it's off to LaLaLand for me... I'm also a gardener.  If it didn't get dark I'd still be out there when the milkman comes around (do they come around anymore?)... Remember the little box in the kitchen wall by the door that opened to the outside?  Milk would magically appear in that box if you left your empty bottles in it.

  We didn't have a magic door in the wall, but we had a magic box on the porch that would change empty bottles into full milk bottles!

bwahahahahahahahaha Victoria, you crack me up!!  After I posted that, I went to bed and totally crashed... the cats started nudging me at 7 a.m. this morning... jump up, give them food, go back to bed... but my brain started thinking about coffee... GOOD MORNING!!!!   Oh yeah, it's afternoon already.  I have my first art class at 6 p.m. so don't let me forget.  Going to learn how to draw, paint, whatever...

Could I be getting manic-depressive?  Two days ago I was crying my heart out and now I'm joking around... what's that all about...

BTW, the clock on your post says you were here at 5:22 a.m.  What in the heck are you doing on the computer at that hour??????  You do need a LITTLE sleep...

I think it is a B thing too.... I procrastinate when it is bed time and stall as much as I can.  I fight going to bed, but I love to sleep in.  I think I was born a second shift person too, I'm not tired until after midnight.  UGH!!!!  I have to force myslef to go to bed after the news at 10:30pm  Since I have been going to bed earlier, I am not sleeping as well.   It is so frustrating.

Recently, because of all of the topical magnesium talk on the forums, I started soaking my feet in one cup epsom salt to one gallon water at night.  I went from falling to sleep at about 2 am (after daylight savings time change) to falling asleep very easily at about 12:15.  The nights I skip the soaking (because I am not sure if I should do it every night), I lay awake until 1:30 or so...still watching something minimally interesting so I don't get into it too much.
