I got a question: when you sleep at night, do you sleep all the way through

    or do you wake up for a bit, like maybe an hour or two and then fall back asleep?

    I just read this article that before we started having gaslighted streets, people regularly slept in two phases: they would go to sleep for about 3 hours, wake up and read,pray, fuck etc., and then go back to sleep for another 6 or so hours. they slept twice over a 12 hour night.

    http://slumberwise.com/science/your-ancestors-didnt-sleep-like-you/

    this interests me because for a long time I sleep for about 3 hours, then wake up, do whatever (check the web, read) for an hour and then fall back asleep for another 4 hours. the second 4 hours is always the most restful sleep. i always thought it was just another weird thing about me (there are so many, what's one more?) but after reading the article i'm wondering if this is just normal?

    If I go to bed drunk, I sleep until my alarms go off.

    If I wake up during the night, I can usually fall back to sleep within 10 minutes......but I can't remember the last time I slept straight through the night without waking up at least once

    No. I drink water all day long. I probably drink 2-3 gallons a day. I always fill up my 32oz Gatorade bottle with ice and water and put it on my nightstand every night when I go to sleep, diabetic hospital bed ham hock.

    Sometimes I get up to piss like a racehorse, but then I fall right back to sleep.

    I like that.

    yeah i wasn't counting the piss breaks. i've gotten used to them, and i don't fully wake up for them so i fall back asleep instantly. btw, multiple piss breaks are normal as we age because its easier to move the blood around through the kidneys while lying down cause you're not fighting gravity.

    I also sleep with my oreck air purifier on high and I also have an alarm clock that produces white noise(on high also) so outside noises don't disturb me. I'm like Niles from "Frasier."
