    I'll have to check that article out. Because I always Always ALWAYS have trouble falling asleep. Although I'm up now because I work nights and I've been organizing and cleaning up a bit. I think I'm tired enough now to fall asleep rather than sit in bed and wait for it to happen. Usually my mind races with thought and that prevents me from sleep. icon_mad.gificon_sad.gif

    I have never heard of DSPD...but I've always had problems sleeping since I was a baby. Is there anything you can do for it? Like gene therapy?

    Cuz srsly. Benedryl only works for so long. And Ambien makes me hallucinate.

    ROFL, so what am I doing up so early? It's 5:28 am here. It seems as I wade through my fifties, 55 now) I sleep about 5 hours or so a night.
    ....now Bill on the other hand, bless his boots, is upstairs with all the little dogs getting his 8 hours.

    Nope, that can't be it. I ended up going to sleep very early. In fact, the sun was barely over the treetops.
    7am IS considered early, right? icon_razz.gif

    A few questions to ask yourself:

    1) Do you have trouble falling asleep at any time of day or only at night when you are supposed to?

    2) Do you find it easy or difficult to sleep in?

    3) If you get up at an early time, do you feel groggy all day and often compensate with afternoon naps?

    Sidenote: the condition is very common in adolescents, but uncommon in adults or children

    Hmmm, its normal for people to need less sleep as we grow older... Like its normal for babies to need much more sleep as they are younger (like close to 20 hours a day)

    Now that I actually take a moment to READ the wiki on DSPD...

    Holy fuck, that's the exact symptoms I have - going to bed "regularly" just before sunrise, and sleeping a normal amount of time. In fact, it took me a while to adjust to the hours at The Y because I'm used to working out around midnight at home.

    The funny part is I really don't want it "cured." It comes in handy when clubbing all night long. icon_lol.gif
