    I could go to bed at 4:00am

    and wake up at 12:30 easily I have the worst time trying to go to bed. And sometimes I'll randomly wake up at 3:00 am sweating like crazy and sick as dog. I don't know if that's a condition or what

    I wake up every hour in the night.

    Not exactly an hour (that would just be crazy lol) but around the hour mark. It drives me insane!!!! I can honestly say I haven't had a full nights rest since I was in 2nd grade and I'm 21 years old now lol

    Oh Sleep How I Love Thee, Why Do You Hurt Me So

    First of all, I am almost never tired. It's not just that I can't sleep, it's that I don't feel the need to. Other times, if I am tired, I just cannot sleep. I don't know why. I don't drink anything with caffiene in it, smoke, do drugs or anything like that, that would keep me up...

    "i Have Weird Sleep Patterns"

    It's true, I have weird sleeping habits - I sleep when I'm tired, and get up when I'm awake. It doesn't matter what time of day or night it is as long as I get everything done. None of that tired sluggish feeling for me no more. Life's great when you're full of energy.

    I have real trouble with my sleeping.

    Sometimes I will fall asleep at a reasonable time with ease. Other times sleep is as elusive as a garden fairy. I find that irregular sleep patterns are very disruptive and are no help when it comes to managing my mental health issues.

    Up All Night, Sleep All Day

    I am not proud of this, but I am basically up all night and sleep all day. I don't know how it got this bad, but it has and now I feel as if I'm stuck. I've tried to go to bed early, but I'm not tired, so I spend time online and write. Now there are these upstairs neighbors...

    Constantly Moving

    My sleep patterns move about all over the place. Sometimes I sleep in the day, sometimes the night, sometimes part of the day or part of the night. It never stays the same though. It used to be a bit disorientating changing my sleep patterns all the time, but my body seems to...

    Fell asleep at 1 am and then woke up at 6?

    Why exactly? There was no reason for me to wake up except to annoy me early in the morning.
