Remember that you don't always get a true representation from reading forums (fora? LOL) - most people are posting on there because they have a problem, those who have great sleep probably don't frequent this forum as much... I can honestly say I haven't been too sleep deprived - I think it would be a lot worse if I had to get up with him (he doesn't STTN but I don't think he wakes because of being in bed with me)
