    Wondering what it's like to wake up feeling refreshed from a solid night's sleep.

    I wanna be that person that doesn't need 3 alarms, doesn't hit snooze 5 times, doesn't need a big cup of slap me in the *kitten* face when I roll outta bed.

    Is that too much to ask?!
    I get up right away & then take an hour to get moving. The only time I feel refreshed is when I can sleep as long as I want without guilt & without interruption. That has happened approximately three times in the past 25 years. I am so *kitten* exhausted most of the time & it’s pure will & stress that keep me moving. Most days I fantasize about a nice dark hobbit hole where there are no obligations & I can just lie still & quiet. TMI?
    I think I need to take a lot of this back because it’s not completely true. I think I’m having some depression right now which is darkening my perspective. Honestly, when I guard my boundaries around sleep and I’m careful about caffeine I do feel quite refreshed after a good nights sleep. It requires work though and I’m not very good about being consistent with it.

    I need to find balance. My ability to get too attached to my dying patients is really weighing heavy on me.

    I know no other way, it's who I am as a person and would want the same care for anyone that I loved.

    It's hard not to take my work home with me at the end of the day.

    Hugs ♥️

    I’ve been trying to prioritize sleep about the last year - year and a half now - try to keep a consistent bed time between 8:30-9 up but 4ish most days - and it seems I feel better those days than if I sleep in - and now if I get up after 4 or 5 ish even in the weekends - I get bummed cause I feel like I didn’t attack the day 🤷‍♂️

    What on earth does one do at 5 a.m. to attack the day? Do you exercise 7 days a week?

    They say that getting up the same time every day is key, but when I'm not working I like to roll around in bed for a few extra hours bc it feels like a treat. However, I've noticed that when I do this I feel like crap for the rest of the day.

    @TwitchyMagee Caffeine may also play a roll in my sleep issues. I run on caffeine all day long!
    Me thinks we all know what to do to take better care of ourselves, the problem is doing it and staying consistent.

    Take care of you the way you'd take care of someone you love. ♥️ PSA

    Yup. I feel so much better when I roll outta bed and leave the house. That's why I struggle with Sunday, and it's too cold to wake up and walk the dogs. So I lay around and feel like crap the rest of the day. Yes, I get things accomplished but I'm more productive when I'm bounced outta the house at 6:30 a.m.

    There are so many lurkers up in here. I'm forever getting friend requests from people I've never even seen around here.

    My friends don't even want to be my friend on here 😂

    One more class tomorrow then an exam. Then a other course that's just read and learn yourself then another 4 days of zoom. I'm hoping to be completely done in early January
