To sleep between 9 and 9:30 (and I go to sleep fast - bugs my wife)

Awake at 5:00 am for workout or reading.

Late to sleep, early to rise.

Ideally, I would like to be in bed asleep by 9:30 or 10:00 but I have a terrible TVLand addiction that causes me to fight sleep until 11:00 or 11:30.

I wake up without my alarm by 6:30 but I could really use an extra hour or two of sleep.

I have been an insomniac for the last 5 years. I am also generally extremely stressed out and worry about things. I have always been a light sleeper and my mind plays tricks on me in the dark. Oh yeah - that too - I'm afraid of the dark.

me and insomnia, we go waaaayyy back.

i suspect my erratic sleep patterns became ingrained by my years and years of post secondary education. i got used to classes in the morning, napping all afternoon, and staying up until the wee hours of the morning studying/reading/goofing off. i go through regular bouts of not being able to sleep at all (fight club insomnia ) followed by two or three days of sleeping 12 hours a day... a week or two of semi-normal sleeping (if i'm lucky)...then the cycle repeats.

kinda tough adjusting to a 9-5 work schedule now that i finally have a job with responsibilities and am expected to be coherent.

I'm another goes-to-sleep late, gets-up-early person. I have to get up at 5:30am, yet I go to bed around midnight, which is less than 6 hours of sleep for me, and I need more than that. But I'm nocturnal, so getting up early doesn't work for me. But I have to get used to it...

I need 8 hrs. Sleep is honestly my #1 priority. It doesn't matter how much I exercise or how healthy I eat if I'm not getting enough sleep. If I have a test the next day, I will do WAY better if I quit studying when I'm tired and get a good rest than if I force myself to stay awake all night cramming. I usually go to bed around midnight and watch 1/2 hr to an hr of TV before drifting off. My earliest classes start at 10:30am so I can sleep from 1am-9am. I take a lot of night classes and still manage to work 20-32 hrs a week while being a full time student so I like this schedule a lot.

I'm more of an evening person and tend to stay up late.

Then again, I love to sleep, especially when you can share it with someone else...

I've been an insomniac for nearly 9 years... have tried all the traditional remedies, medicine, you name it... no use. The most annoying thing of all is that my best friend is narcoleptic - so technically, our sleeping problems should cancel each other out! Unfortunately, they don't.

HelloAngel - you're not alone in your dislike of the dark. I've never liked it either.

I'm completely nightblind too and get really pissed off with bloody stupid morons and imbeciles who say "well, duh, no-one can see in the dark!" Yeah, that's true, but most people's eyes adjust slightly - mine don't at all.

What is this sleep that you speak of?
Honestly, I'm a university student, we don't know sleep...
Really, I'm an owl, I *can't* go to bed early (unless I'm dead tired) b/c I won't sleep, I'll watch tv or something. And really, it doesn't matter what time I go to bed/ how many hours of sleep I get I will still be tired in the morning cause I'm *not* a morning person. Usually I get somewhere b/w 5 to 9 hours sleep..depending. And on weekends I stay up, but I sleep til noon (I weekends).
And to anyone who can't sleep well, that sux.

I don't have a regular work schedule - some days I work a regular day shift, some days I work an evening shift, so my sleep schedule is a little wacky. I'm almost never in bed before 2am, and usually make do with 4 hours of sleep if I have to work in the morning. If I work an evening shift I usually sleep in and get at least a full 8 hours, though.
