    What's a sleep schedule.

    No matter what time I fall asleep,

    I ALWAYS wake up at 1:30 AM and can't sleep anymore. I went to sleep at midnight last night and woke up at 1:30. I nap during the days so much because I'm so tired all the time, I can't even focus on eating without almost falling asleep.

    American Dreams...

     I find it funny how we all view our sleep schedules as being messed up.  We've been conditioned into thinking that because of some societal norm.  A norm that dictates a normal sleeping pattern consists of approximately 8 solid hours of sleep, beginning around 9 o...

    Anyone else stay up all night

    and sleep all day. At night I'm always thinking about pointless things and my mind is running a mile a minute. I wish I didn't think so much.

    I work the overnight shift on weekends

    which means that I have to work 17 hours in a row without sleep, nap for a few hours, then do another 16 hours before my work week is over. By the time I readjust to normal hours, it's time to go back to work.

    Today I just found out that

    if you sleep less than 8 hours a day than you're more likely to acquire heart problems and die prematurely from a heart attack but if you sleep any more than 8 hours a day you're more likely to die prematurely from depression. WTF?!

    I faked sick to stay home from school yesterday

    to sleep in. I ended up doing so and didn't wake up until 1 pm. I didn't sleep at all when nighttime came along, and now I'm sitting here at 6:43 AM contemplating whether or not to fake again so I can sleep or just go to school. But then again it's raining and I don't like rain...

    I just want to get on a damn normal sleep

    schedule...that's all I want. Staying up for 27+ hours at a time and then sleeping for 9 hours or so is driving me crazy. If I take any kind of sleep aid I sleep 15+ hours. Nothing's working

    Anytime my schedule changes my sleep suffers.

    It's difficult recalibrating once the changes have been made. And to know my schedule will change,as it frequently does, doesn't give me much assurance that'll I'll find a balance. Any insight on this matter? What methods have you tried to get a restorative, well balanced sleep...

    Sometimes I sleep early

    as 10 pm, sometimes I sleep as late as 1 am. You could say I'm a night owl, sometimes I can stay up the whole night and not sleep for the whole day in daylight and night time.

    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.
