im having a problem that ive had for a long time but it is coming back worse now. i use to be able to go without sleeping a night and be fine then sleep the next night like i was ok. meaning 1 night sleep 1 night done 1 night sleep 1 night dont. i dont party or drink. i just stay up. i would take melatonin, ambien,ghb,warm milk,ect.(not all at the same time! lol ) and some would work but i would have to stay on it for me to sleep everynight. well it went away for a couple years but now its back. like tonight. its 4:55am and i dont think ill be going to bed tonight. last night i slept 5 hours. so its getting worse. im tired but i just cant fall asleep. i stay up all night watching tv or thinking or writing.
there is one thing that i thought of that might be the reason. before when i had this problem i was younger and didnt have a job or went to school and i would sleep for 12 sometimes 14 hours a night then wouldnt sleep for 48 hours and then sleep for 10-12 hours ect.. now i do have a fulltime job and fulltime school but i have had the month off from school so i have been sleeping in. could this be my problem? has anyone had this happen to them? maybe i should only get 7-8 hours of sleep a night so that this doesnt happen. because it hasnt happen to me for about 5 years.
any input would be great.
