What kind of sleeping patterns do you have?

I'm always curious how many hours of sleep do you need a night? I wish I could go to sleep early, but no matter how early I have to get up, I always go to sleep between 12:00 and 1:00 AM and wake up tired.

I wish I could go to sleep earlier but it never happens. Oh and another thing I often wake up and watch CNN or the news at 4:00 A.M.

Are there any other insomniacs around here? If you have a great night's sleep everynight what are your secrets?

unfortunately I'm an owl and can stay up all night even if I'm super tired. I have to be to work at 8 AM everyday and it's very tough to get up!

I usually go to bed between 11-midnight and wake up at 7 but I don't get up right away. I only live 10 minutes from work and thankfully no one cares if we're a few minutes late. I do sleep the whole night once I actually fall asleep but I never get more than 6-7 hours.

i don't have any sleeping patterns.

i'm usually up for about 3 or 4 days on 3 or 4 hours (total) of sleep, and then every once in a while i crash for 12 hours at a time.

i can develop normal sleeping patterns if i don't have school or work to deal with, but unfortuantly i end up sleeping from around 10am-5pm when that happens.

I'm an owl too. The worst thing is my college only has classes in the afternoon so when I wake up I'm waiting to go to college and when I come home I'm waiting to go to sleep. For some reason, I don't feel comfortable with my schedule. I hate it. I'm so complicated.

I have been a true insomniac for about 14 years and before that, a very light sleeper.

Initially, it was a side diagnosis of PTSD, which I don't really discuss often, and over time I am not really sure anymore. It may be a psychological thing or it may be completely disrupted sleep rhythms for way too many years.

I have a tendency to not be able to sleep at night very well or at all, and then crashing terribly when I have a day off - sleeping for many, many hours, in the middle of the day, standing up, wherever.

Then it's back to the same old, same old.

It's irritating, and although I'm used to it now and know how to function with it, I have good days and bad days.

Another evening person here. I usually go to sleep around 1 AM (earlier really isn't possible or I have to be sick or having skipped a night to camp out for U2 tickets. ). Unfortunately, my alarm clock wakes me at 6:30 AM again as I have to go to work.

I really wish I had a normal sleeping pattern. I would love to be able to go to bed no later than 11:30 and to wake up at 7AM with ease. But I can't, I never have. Instead I have an awful sleeping pattern. I get it from my father. I am night owl and I have terrible bouts of insomnia. As a matter of fact, I have been dealing with it for weeks. Right now it is bad because I am not working so I just stay up and watch tv and surf the net. Fun stuff.

I am up right now after only having a few hours of sleep. I had 2.5 beers Sunday night at the various Super Bowl parties I attended and since I am not drinking as much these days it is enough to really screw my sleep up.

So it is 5:25AM and I am wide eyed.

I need at least 7 hours. And during the weekends I sleep about 10 hours a night.
