    but not tired at all

    For the past few weeks I haven't got more than 5 hours a night sleep yet I'm not tired. I feel wide awake all the time, I can't remember the last time I yawned. I don't even sleep solidly, I keep waking up during the night.

    Someone suggested a manic phase of bipolar to me but I don't have any other symptoms I'm just super energetic.

    Anyone else have this?


    Seems like a good time of night to ask.

    I'm nearly 70 and only ever had between 4 and 5 hours a night. Some people need more sleep than others. I'm wide awake now working on assignments/dissertation. If the 4 or 5 hours you get are unbroken sleep, I don't see the problem and, as you say, you are energetic, I wouldn't worry.

    No, my sleep is broken up, I don't stay asleep for those 4-5 hours..

    This is a new thing for me, it used to be that I'd sleep until around noon.



    Btw, you're almost 70? :eek: Wow!
