I still nap on the weekend, but do not sleep nearly as much then either.
It is the waking up at 4:30am that bothers me, as I have always slept like a rock until at least 6:00am.
I used to average 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night, and now I am lucky if I sleep for 5 hours.
The plus is not feeling tired and fatigued all the time, but I wonder if this will have a negative effect if it continues.
I miss bread! But I love Kinnikinnick gluten free pizza crust.

Even before going gluten-free Nyquil used to hurt me. I'd break out in hives and feel like I was ready to crawl walls (forget about sleeping). That could just be me.
Well, it's just me, too!! The main ingredient is a decongestant which hypes you up. Then they put the other stuff in to calm you down. Most people it calms way down to sleep. I don't take much hyping up, but a take a LOT of calming down. No sleep for me with Nyquil.
I am in the wake up at 4:30 a.m. group, stil!!!! But at least I do usually get back to sleep some time later and often sleep till 8 or 9.
