Right now it's 3am and I have to be at work in 5 hours. I've pretty much been like this for 10 years almost. It's gotten to the point were I'm so used to being awake at this hour I feel like this is day time and I am most alert and able to do things... Which makes it very hard to sleep even if I want to. Basically I sleep at 3am and get 4 hours sleep before work, come home from work and get 2 hours sleep. If I manage to skip the two hours after work I end up not going to bed till 3am again... Anyone else overcome insomnia before? What are my options here? I am thinking of: 1) Being a fucking normal person and go to bed at a reasonable hour awaking fresh and able to get through the day. (which would probably mean having to go to the doctor for pills) 2) Reverse the normal pattern and go to bed after work (5pm) and sleeping for 8 hours then have my normal functions (such as dinner etc) before going to work again 3) Just continue mixing option 1 and 2 together.
