Does anyone have any tricks to deal with this type of thing?

Is there anything that you could do to get yourself back to sleep?
Getting up and going to the bathroom and getting a drink sometimes does this for me.
Sometimes I check my emails and read a few and then I shut it off and lay quiet.
I figure either way it's rest and sometimes I feel myself going into a half asleep-half awake state that does feel nourishing to my body.

I do the exact same thing. I'm up between 5-5:30 almost every morning. If I'm awake before 5, I make myself stay in bed until at least 5:15 or so. What time do you go to bed at night? Any new meds?
I'm usually asleep by 11pm or so. I was doing really well until a couple of weeks ago - would wake up at 6 or 6:30 which was AWESOME. I'm not on any meds (but do take magnesium). My housemate just got back from o/s so I'm thinking it might be my body getting used to someone else being in the house again?? Either that or the cold weather....

For me I always wake at 5am. The key is to cut down the adrenal overstimulation for me. If i have a big day the next day and need to be at my best, I take a beta blocker, not during the day but just before sleep the night before, lye in bed feeling relaxed like im usually not with pots and then (just me maybe) a shot of port to make me sleep as betas effect my sleep. I wake up much better the next day when i do this. But do it too often and it stops working.
