Thanks for your comment and advise. Although I know I shouldn't have taken a nap, I was out of energy (only 3 hrs sleep). Actually I was re-engerized after the nap. The next day, I did not nap although limited amount of sleep.

As far as not getting out of the bed when I wake up, sometimes I'm out of the bed when I wake up. I wake up on the average of 3 times a night hallucinating and sometimes in a state of fright. I 've been told by my doctor that I might have sleep apathy and to get tested.

I thought I'd keep this sleep journal to determine if eating properly and working out as much as possible will eliminate the frequent wake up and hallucinating. If not, I'm going in to take the test.

Thanks again for taking the time to read and reply to me.

My brother had a lot of sleep problems from medicine he took. I looked up things about sleep and they said to never take a Nap during the day even if you didn't sleep any the night before. Then use a sleep mask and keep the room dark. Use ear plugs if you must to keep noise down. Never get up out of bed during the night if you can keep from it, so don't drink fluid before bed. Stay in bed even if you lie awake all night as if you do fall asleep you will be in the bed. Don't play the radio or TV. Take a warm bath before bedtime and use your best perfume if you love the smell. Sleep alone if the other person bothers you with rolling around in the bed.
