Are you lunar sensitive?

Does your body react to lunar phases? I seem to retain water in the days preceding and during full moon and expel it as soon as full moon is over. It was worse when I had periods but still lingers.

Also, last night I heard every dog bark and rooster crow for miles around all night . I got up about 3:30AM figuring it was so light it must be morning already. (No sleep mask last night.)

I wonder if we are supposed to go hunt for food then according to Grok? I notice the same thing.

No, because I know what that feels like (I was that way yesterday, staying up late Tuesday night to watch a show, then sleeping like crap). The full moon thing is pretty predictable, it's been going on for at least 10 + years.

Any chance it's hypoglycemia brought on by poor sleep? I remember reading that a lack of sleep can cause temporary blood sugar issues...

LOL! Well, last night with a sleep mask I slept until 6 AM. Moon was still crazy bright down here.

Interestingly enough on days after a full moon, I always remember dreaming violent dreams and wake up with the taste of grass-fed beef in my mouth and my clothes torn off.... joking of course. Interesting concept though I'll have to pay attention to that from now on.

I have never slept well at the time of a full moon - has been the case since I was a teenager (I'm 45 now) - many, many, many times without knowing it was a full moon after tossing and turning I get up and - what do you know it's a bright night - my bedroom has 100% block out blinds - it has nothing to do with light in the room - I don't sleep worth a #[email protected]% during a full moon - 100% fact.

I also have sleep issues coinciding with lunar phases. Interestingly, in looking over my weight loss over the last six months I notice that I lose the pounds faster on the waning side of the moon.

If I'm going to have sleep problems they show up during the full moon phases. Last couple of nights I've only gotten about 6.5 hrs instead of 8.

I haven't noticed any changes in my sleep patterns, but on a full moon I get incredibly bitchy and just hate everything and everyone. It's like PMS, minus the cramps and bloating.

Can't sleep with bright moonlight through the window---other than that, I've never noticed a problem.
