I often wake up after 4 hours of sleep and can’t fall back asleep for another 3 or 4 hours.

I sleep 12 hours exactly.
I sleep early and wake up early.
If i have psychotic thoughts, a nap cures them

I love sleep. Between ambien and Loxapine I sleep like a baby most nights but I go to bed late due to working late so I get up late but that’s just my schedule. Go to bed at 1am and get up at 11am.

i cant get to sleep until 6 am then i sleep till 4 pm it sucks i dont even get to see the sun

I take my pills before bed because they make me drowsy, but if I take them too early I fall asleep for like a short while wake up and its like, what come on you made me tired, just keep sleeping!

I almost am averaging 7 hours a night this month. My dad passed away in December and although I miss him, it’s at least a good thing that he isn’t calling me at 4am anymore with a crisis. My sz symptoms are much better on a good night’s sleep but I try to not panic and take it easy the next day if I have a bad night. Totally abstaining from caffeine, doing Yoga, hot compresses, sex and deep breathing help a lot with inflammation which otherwise interfere with my sleep.

I’m getting back on a somewhat normal schedule. My sleep got all messed up for a while, but now I’m going to bed at night and sleeping through until morning.

But I have to have my naps
