What keeps you up at night?

Ali de Bold

What are the things that you think about, discuss with your friends and worry about at night?

For me, it's all over the place from H1N1 to what am I going to wear to this event, to is sleeping on the sides of my face what's causing that wrinkle that's forming between my eyes?

Much of it is superficial but I also have a lot of concern about the environment, the products I use and if I'm doing enough to help others less fortunate. I want to make sure that my life isn't just about me.

What topics keep you up at night and what is it that is important to you now?

heavy sleeper

I usually hit the pillow so hard I'm dead to the world. When I do lie awake tossing and turning, it's mostly about "darnit, I need my sleep!" I worry about many things quite a lot, but strangely not at night.

with me I normally can't tell what it is that keeps me up at night, sometimes I can sleep like a log and other times I am up and wired for no good reason!

For the past few weeks... possibly longer... it's been boy trouble!! I am constantly second guessing his motives, feelings and our "relationship". It's a long story! Probably a great topic for another discussion and I know I could use some "chick advice" on this one.... but I'm so confused I don't even know where to start!

But, yes.... boy trouble keeps me awake at night.... *sigh*.... I'm so tired!!!

What keeps me up at night?

Trying to buy a house and continually getting blocked by one thing or another w/ each attempt. (grumble, grumble)

Worry about losing my job. Then worried about offering a job I don't want but can't say no to. Worry about stuff I have to do at work. Work work work. It's always work.

Oh my gosh!

I think about the same thing with the pillow and the wrinkles! I always make sure my face is positioned perfectly so my skin isn't being squished in any-way-shape-or-form. Hilarious!

I also think about men, the exciting things I have to look forward to the next day (usually resulting in the worst nights sleep), my family, and conversations I've had that day. Oh, and it's when I sort out my weeks schedule.

great topic!!!

Wow this is a great topic!!! especially since my thoughts keep me up almost all nights so I end up getting 2 - 3 hrs of sleep tops.

Hmm....so what keeps me up? BOYS!!! LOL definately .... Patricia your response sounds somewhat like how i feel! I'm so confused, the guy i'm talking to is nothing but good to me and his niceness makes me question the poor boy.

Also, family's sort of putting pressure on me to *get married* (SIGH!!!! i know..very retarded ... don't ask...)

I also think I have a stress issue, I worry a lot about a lot of things and everything from work stuff, stressful situations my friends are going through, to my own life, etc ...everything, everyone and their uncles are in my head and keep me up all night.

The last time I went to a massage therapist, it actually took me the first 20mins to just clear my head and relax.... ever feel that a ton of people are screaming inside your head, each one vying for attention? When the world is silent, thats exactly how I feel.

I hate to be thread jacking but does anyone have any tips to reduce stress? I already walk at least 1hr a day (on top of the regular activities of work, and my work does keep me quite active).

MissChickie: LOL @ placing your face just so on the pillow so not to squish it .... i think i'm going to be thinking of that tonight too!!! hehe :)

all of the above...

I tend to stress about my job. Work is a big stress factor in my life and sometimes I can't shake off the negativity so when I come home it becomes a problem between my bf and I instead of being left at the office.

My relationship with my boyfriend. He is currently working really hard at jobs he loves but his working all the time means like time for us. And that is really hard as I just want to spend quality time with the man I love instead of sitting in another room while he works in his office.

My family. They are all going through rough patches in their lives and I don't live near any of them so it is hard to stay in contact and help them through their hardships.

I think about many things at night. Unfortunately, it's mostly my worries that keep me awake.
