Is there something special about 3am. I had my first chemo on Monday and just starting to realise why I am on sick leave. Nothing serious just not me but I notice that 3am is becoming my friend, I sleep well, wake have a cuppa and something to eat and then read a bit and then back to bed for another couple of hours. A bit of constipation but am dealing with that.

    Ah, who knows what starts it off but I have been waking at 3.30 for years. I don’t really get up, but have some milk, do some sudoku and actually quite enjoy the deep quiet (well, if my husband isn’t snoring!) and then go back to sleep. Occasionally I am awake till 5 or later which isn’t quite as good but mostly it’s a little night ritual.

    Remember the matchbox 20 song? It's about the same 3 am. 

    And she says baby
    It's three a.m. I must be lonely
    Oh, when she says baby
    Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
    And the rain's gonna wash away I believe this

    For me it was more about 4am when I was having chemo. But then I've always been a night owl! You might like to check out the thread called Night Howls. You might find some company there in the middle of the night. K xox

    As always thank you for your advice. Now that I am up and around feeling a bit better but gosh, this is interesting.  Regards
