I Have a Messed Up Sleep Schedule

    Insomnia is both my friend

    and foe, It gives me the option to fill up idle hours with my every whim and joy but the debilitating exhaustion and want to just close my eyes and let my mind rest without a million little ideas/fears/emotions buzzing through it. I'm up for days on end and even when i do get...

    I'm always up late ( I mean really late like 5

    AM US Eastern Standard Time) I'd like to meet some other people to talk. You can be in a different time zone or a night owl. It doesn't matter to me. I'd just like some late night company.

    Last night I went to bed at 1:30 AM.

    It was a school night and I wanted to stay up longer. We watched a movie in geography the last 25 minutes of class so i slept. I can only hope I passed my algebra test

    It's almost 4am where I am.

    I still can't sleep, all these things running through my mind, while everyone else is peacefully dreaming around me...When will the anxious feeling leave and give me a break.

    Is it a crime to fall asleep?

    -.- had a rough night and I get blocked because I didn't respond because I fell asleep at 1am....thank you. Didn't realise it was illegal to live in a different time zone.

    I need sleep so badly.

    I'm so tired during the day I can barely keep my eyes open. Every free moment I get I stop breast and close my eyes. I can't keep this up forever

    My body just feels better at night

    and I'm never tired! During the day it's the opposite! And if I go to bed an hour earlier and wake up an hour earlier (than my norm) I feel horrible all day... Until night time comes around again! Ugh! Why can't I change my sleep cycle?!?

    Thanx to my hypothyroidism,

    I have a real bad sleeping schedule. Tried several (herbal/natural) remedies, breathing excersises, meditation and"fixed schedules". Some days I am so tired, but just can't sleep and I'm awake well past midnight. Very annoying on worknights, because I don't function well when I...

    I spend my nights thinking.

    I can't stop thinking and it's very annoying because I would go to sleep around 7 am and wake in an hour or two. I get very little sleep, and it's all because I'm an overthinker :')

    I search YouTube for sleep videos.

    There is music for insomnia and meditations. meditation and music for stress and pretty much everything. when I have them playing at night they sometimes help me sleep...often they do. its only once in awhile they don't and sometimes that is because I don't like the meditation...

    When boredom strikes me,

    I either talk to chat or sleep. However, most of my friends were "unavailable" so I decided to sleep. So, I slept yesterday 4 hours only from 4 - 8:30 AM for some reason and then I slept from 7:30- 11:15 PM because I was so tired and I don't know how will I sleep later. PS it's...

    So 70% of nights I have to sneak out to work

    then I have to go to school during the day so there's no time to sleep. It sucks and I hate the taste of coffee so my grades dropped pretty badly. So that's my problem.

    Nearly every day, I sleep all day.

    Except for days I have work (Twice a week). I have always had this fear of going to sleep just for being scared to deal with the next day. Night time at about midnight is the only time where it feels like it's just me & the world. It's where I finally get to breathe, & relax...

    My body basically would much

    rather sleep than be up with the sun. The sun actually overwhelms my eyes now but-- oh well. I'll fret about it when I actually have a life and real responsibilities to take care of. Right now my life is ****.
