I don't know what it is with me and sleeping, we don't get on together
No it's like, for the past four nights it has took me ages to sleep and then I end up getting up at 2:00 O'Clock in the afternoon. I just want some good sleep, I mean, staying up until 3:00 O'Clock doesn't help much , but if I go at an earlier time, I can't get to sleep, it takes me ages

I am by nature a night hawk, I love being up late when everyone else is tucked up and in bed. But, as I work I also have to get up at 8.00am (ish) or often earlier.
If your body can handle late nights, then do it, if it can not then do not do it.... When I am tired, I sleep, and that may be at 5 in the afternoon, or 3 in the morning... The main thing is to sleep, and get quality sleep when you can.

But I'll have to fix it soon, before I go back to school......because I might not get any sleep at all

If you can't sleep, it's probably best to get off the PC - that will keep your brain awake for sure, IMO. Try reading a book quietly for a while. If you feel hungry, have a crust of bread and a glass of water or milk (avoid coffee) that can often do the trick.

Another thing that helps is to have a routine. Get into your 'school' routine now, before school starts, and it will be easier in time.


If you don't like something, change it -

I tend to agree with omj about less time on the computer, and add less telly,  but would add that it's hard to sleep if you are mentally tired but not pysically tired. You mention in other posts, Stephanie, that you sometimes don't get out of the house much. Any excercise that you do for longer than 20 mins could maybe help a little? Like, walking fast, cycling, swimming, dance, yoga - whatever you would enjoy?
Professionals advice getting up early in the morning even if you slept badly and then don't nap during the day. They reckon it's more important than going to bed early (but don't tell the kids!  ).
Having said all that, I am simply not a morning person, never have been, and never will be. Like Neil I get up early when I have to, but unlike Neil I rarely nap these days as I have to care for my daughter. I've become conditioned to manage on less sleep than my body needs... In the old days, I used to catch up at weekends

I used to wake up at 3am...come downstairs cos I could`nt get back to sleep....I went on this forum quite a few times,and stayed on for a couple of hours.(not good for helping you get tired),...I`m not being funny when I say that all of that was when I was married. Since separating...I can sleep like a baby..

Yes, I went to sleep at midnight and woke up at 12 noon, tonight I'm going to see if I can get to sleep at 11:00 tonight, I'm going to do it in stages. I felt great when I got up this afternoon
