    I didn't vote as I'm neither!!

    I get up rather late - around 8am; and go to bed early - around 9pm!!!

    In contrast to many people I worry that I am sleeping a bit too much but my Doctor says this is good for me and that if I am sleeping this much regularly, then my body (and mind) obviously needs the rest...

    I cannot really say one or another as I can go to bed for example at 5pm and not get up again till the following afternoon.

    Not joking I have been known to sleep for 18 hours only to go back to bed within a 3 hour period thanks to fibromyalgia.

    My fatigue  is bad when I'm having a flare up.

    I'm definitely more of an early bird! I struggle to stay awake beyond 9.30-10pm, and usually get up anywhere between 7-9am, when working anyway  :D

    I stay up way too late and always tell myself i'm going to bed early but it never happens. I get up anytime from 7-8.30.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I'm definitely a night owl too :) 

    If 8am is 'late', I dread to think of what you'd think about what time I wake up when left to my own devices @66Mustang :D

    That was my lads Mustang, but think it was more due to play on their xbox etc or clubbing - i would wake them up with a wet flannel or pull the hairs on their legs ha ha - i suppose that would be abuse now  :p but they still love me xx

    Neither.  I was once a night owl, but over the last decade I have learned sleep hygeine and been put on mirtizipine. So I go to bed about ten-ish, read until the mirtizipine kicks in, and then sleep until mid morning.  I have always struggled with mornings, throughout school and then my whole working life it was a cause of stress and struggle for me.  My last job I eventually went part time and worked afternoons and my manager said that they got more work out of me than when I was working twice the hours!  People are supposed to be at their best at about 10.30am but for me I'm at my best about now.

    Naturally, a night owl but work turns me into an early bird! I am allergic to mornings though  :D
