…I slept like sh*t.
I texted him this morning and said when I’m not at the apt with him, I just flat out don’t sleep well. I drove 8 hours to Philly and I am POOPED at work today!
Does this happen to anyone else??

I always sleep better with SO around. When he relocated for work (i join him in a couple of weeks) I didn’t sleep much for weeks. I was always exhausted. And I’m still not getting a great nights sleep months later.

I always sleep great when I’m traveling or DH is away. I get a much better night’s sleep when I’m alone.

I’m the opposite! I sleep like a baby when he’s gone! I was up early bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning! My SO is on his Bachelor Party Trip. Ahhh…sleep for the next few days should be devine!

@jpalm13: It happens to me, I can’t sleep well at all without him there. The last time he went out of town I planned things to keep my mind occupied in bed until I could finally fall asleep (movies on Netflix, a book, and some wedding mags). Took two glasses of wine, too.
Maybe you can get a power nap during your lunch hour, I have been known to do that!

@Sunfire: I tossed and turned all night. I’ve done the booze thing, too!
I wish I could nap. I’m visiting one of our other offices and I’m being entertained for lunch. 5 more hours 5 more hours lol

@jpalm13: FI and I both have this problem. I work overnights so there’s times he’ll text me in the middle of the night asking me to come home because he can’t sleep without me.

@jpalm13: This happens to me too. I hate sleeping without my husband in the bed.
In an aside, I misread your post as, “I POOPED at work today!” and wondered what that had to do with your poor sleep. 🙂 Had to re-read it!

@Rouquine: He said he couldn’t sleep well without me there, either. (shameless awww)

I hate sleeping without him! Even when we are fighting I will cuddle him and sleep right next to him but then wake up in the morning grumpy again. He’s my big cuddley body pillow!

@baileyryan12: I am with you, even when we argue I want him next to me. If he is working late or out of town for work I mabye sleep a few hours here and there.
On the night before the wedding, I didnt sleep a wink because first he was not next to me and second I as so excited.
I hope that I never have to sleep wiithout him, he is my sleeping aid. 🙂

I need a little adjustment period. FI travels about once every other month for work, and is gone for 7-10 days at a time. The first couple days, I sleep like sh*t, but then I sleep like a rock. Then he comes back, and again, I can’t sleep. After a while, I get used to his heater-like body and muttering in his sleep

We’ve only been together a few months, but already I’m so used to having him there. The few nights we haven’t spent together have been miserable. Guess I’m just too used to having him for my pillow. But he says the same thing, when I’m not there he can’t sleep either.

I sleep terribly when we are apart. Hate it, hate it. Since his job sent him up to SLC, it’s been terrible (except this week, because I am here in SLC right now), hence why we are house hunting. He’s convinced me to go ahead and move to the land of butt-deep winter snow (egads!). Small trade if it means being next to him.

DH was gone for 2 nights on a business trip a couple of weeks ago. Neither of us got any sleep.
