    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

    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...

    "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 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 started getting trouble sleeping at university. I was a light sleeper so traffic noises and the like would keep me up. And then I would wake up really early (3-4 am) and be unable to fall back asleep.Last Friday I went out with my flatmate, I went to bed around 3. Then I slept...

    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.

    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...
