    Clonazapam works like a charm in helping you

    fall asleep and stay asleep, especially if you have a lot on your mind. I only use it about twice a week because it is highly addictive. Regular sleeping pills have been unsuccessful for me.

    Thinking too much , depression

    and stress affect my sleep schedule . I don't feel comfortable enough to fall asleep. There's always something on my mind that is annoying me. I wish I could feel comfortable enough to sleep right .

    When I dismiss my sleep

    when it comes too early, sleep dismisses me when I finally decide to shut down.

    I can be ready to pass out all day,

    but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake. The reverse is true as well, with being unable to fall asleep at night but then suddenly getting really sleepy when the sun comes up. Is it the same for anyone else?
