That's the very reason I finally quite reading in bed. What I want to know, is why I can drop off sitting here upright at the computer, but lay awake forever.

You are scaring me!! The only difference is that I usually sleep in the recliner due to a damaged foot that needs to be elevated and back and joint pains that make lying flat painful and pinch the sciatic (SP) nerve.

Oh, now we're really getting creepy; or perhaps an insomniac is an insomniac, wherever they may be. I often sleep in my lazy-boy, and I broke my foot last spring, so it really worked better. Tonight hubby has a cold, so I'm not even thinking of going up to bed. The recliner will work better. But I often get up at 3 a.m. and come downstairs and sit with a book in the wee hours, then sleep for an hour or two just as the sun rises.

I often fall asleep in my recliner with my laptop in my lap on a tray and a cool mat and I wake up with my mouse in my hand!!
