Sleeping...rather, NOT sleeping

Argh! This is going to drive me nuts! It's like I'm a baby with my days & nights mixed up. I did not sleep one wink last night! I was awake until a little after 5 a.m., so I figured I might as well get up and read the paper.
Finally, around 7 a.m., I was feeling "snoozy," so I climbed back into bed and slept until about 12:30. Now I'm all groggy and grumpy. Grr.
Any tips/suggestions? Home remedies? I'm going to try Tylenol PM tonight. I've tried Melatonin before, but it leaves me feeling very groggy the next morning.
I've tried watching tv/not watching tv; reading/not reading. The only things I haven't tried is some good hot lovin' from DH, lol. Can't do that for SEVERAL more weeks!

Sorry, Cindi! I had the same problem after my surgery. The pain meds seemed to have messed with my sleep pattern, as well as the fact that I sleep on my stomach...

I talked to my doctor and got some prescription meds (Ambien) and took them for a week. Now I'm back to normal - short nap in the afternoon, decent sleep at night.

Hot Lovin' from DH might work, but probably not worth the risk!

Good Luck!
