No, unless I take a sleep aid. Right now, that isn't helping much either.

Sometimes. If I have a lot to think about, it may be hard. If that's the case, I try to meditate and that sometimes helps.

Lately I have been sleeping ok, but sometimes wake up to go bathroom sometimes 2 or 3 times, but if I drink tea in the evening it will keep me tripping to the bathroom.
I also have a Cpap but can't use it when I get bad sinus and allergy attacks. Lately have been not using it. Summer is ok for not but have to use it in winter.
I also read for about an hour before I sleep.
I get a lot of fatigue from FM and arthritis and the weather plays a factor on the aches and pains. Especially the cold and rain.

I wake up several times a night but get about 7 hrs anyway. I really appreciate the nights the dog does NOT want to go out during the night. Once in a while I have a bad night and then I give up, get up and read or go on the internet. I suspect my BP is not regulated enough because often I have to go to the bathroom. So, NO I don't sleep well, sometimes.

No, not really. I usually average 6 hours nightly. Sometimes, it will take an hour or more to fall asleep. Then, I wake up throughout the night; bathroom trip or to adjust my sleeping position due to arthritis pain.

I do not sleep well. Between my husband snoring, my mind racing on everything I didn't accomplish, and things that need to be done, and the dog wanting to get in bed. I sleep awful.

Once I get to sleep yes. I have a C-pap machine that drowns out a lot of noise (because its so noisy).

Recently, I have been sleeping between 7 to 9 hours. One night last week I slept 10.5 hours! I get up 1-2 times, either for bathroom visit, snoring partner, or to move the cat.

Falling asleep is an occasional problem,usually related to stress or something I ate. Usually sleep well with at least 1 bathroom trip. If DH is restless or snoring really bad, I go into the other room.

I sleep well from 6 to 7 hours but up 2 or 3 times for bathroom trips, then right back to sleep

Some nights I have a hard time falling asleep. I know I don't get all the sleep I should. I need to get to bed earlier and try to get more rest.

Some nights are better than others. Most nights I sleep about 6 to 6-1/2 hours but feel better on weekends when I get 7 to 7-1/2. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a couple years ago and started sleeping with oxygen. Now that I've lost 20 pounds I can sleep without it; ironically I slept better with it, even though it was noisy and restricted my movement. Now I wake up a couple times each night, even though I don't actually get up. I guess I'm still adjusting.

I do not sleep many hours but when I am asleep I sleep well. Sometimes I only sleep 4-5 hours though. I need to work on sleeping longer as I know that would be better for me health. I often get up and sit in my recliner and then sometimes fall back to sleep for a "nap".

How about you? Do you SLEEP well?
