I am having trouble making it through the day without an afternoon nap. I have found that when I am able to nap on my days off, I can stay up past 7:00 p.m. It also may help me to not get sleepy on the 30 mile trip back home from work. Since I teach straight through the school day with no breaks, I have my free period at the end of the day. I am thinking about locking my door and trying to sleep on a pad on the floor. I am not sure though how my coworkers will react when they figure out that I am doing this. The other day, I mentioned that I needed a nap to a coworker and his response was that we all needed one. I can not remember the last time that I slept through the night as I am up and down all night long. The other problem is that by the afternoon, my pain level is pretty high. My morning also starts at 5:00 a.m. Does anyone have any suggestions?
