Varies: Sleep needs can vary per person and per season. However, for a 42 year old it seems that 10 hours and still feeling tired is too much.

I would rule these issues out with your MD. ...Read more

That's fine if...: If a person works the 3 - 11 p.m. shift, and then does other things until about 5 a.m., it's fine to sleep 5 a.m. to noon. Otherwise, there may be a problem... one that a trip to the primary care doctor can help figure out. It is hard to make a person fall asleep.

Let her choose the story you read her. Put her in bed when she's drowsy, but awake. If you completely & consistently ignore her protests as they get longer & louder in an attempt to get your attention, they will stop. ...Read more

You should have someone monitor you. Please at least make someone aware of what you have taken and how you feel, if not actually seeking medical attention. ...Read more
