1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I usually get 7. I could sleep 9 hours every night if I had the time. I've operated for months on 5-6 and, honestly, it was hard on me. I need me some sleeeeeeep.

    For the last 5 years or so I wake up multipe times through the night, so I really dont get any consistent sleep. I feel like shit most of the time, which is no doubt a symptom. I estimate I sleep maybe 4-5 hours per night in total, although I'm in bed for 8-9 hours. Thinking of trying melatonin.

    since starting this thread ive made some changes to my diet

    i was eating a paleo type diet (no grains, no dairy) and logged my food in fitday for a while. it becaume pretty evident that i was missing out on a few vitamins including vit D (its winter here) and zinc. It seems both are used in sleep regulation.

    ive been taking a Zinc/Magnesium/Vit A and a Mutlivitamin daily before bed and have been having great sleep - waking up feeling really good.

    i thought my diet was pretty tight (big salads for lunch, fruit, range of meats, big plates of vege) so it was pretty eye opening how deficient i was in some nutrients..
