I am starting to believe that I have some type of sleeping disorder. I do not have a problem falling asleep when I get into bed. My problem is that I continously stay up until 2-3 am for no good reason. I wake up at 7am and feel tired all day, often fighting sleep at work. I am always extremely tired driving home (I have a long commute), and am exhausted when I get home. At this point everyday I tell myself that I am going to bed early tonight. But once I get my kids tucked in, I seem to get this second wind. I feel wide awake. Often I have to make myself go to bed at 3 am because I know that I have to be at work. After a couple weeks of really bad hours I will pass out after putting the kids to bed and get 12 hours of sleep. The next day I feel great and swear to that every night, but the cycle starts again. I have had this problem as long as I can remember. I am not sure that I fit the classic case of insomnia because I think that I can go to sleep if I could force myself to get into bed. I guess for years I have carried the shame of thinking that I simply lack discipline, but I am starting to think that it is something medical or physical. Does anyone else out there have this problem? I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks.
