Help! I sleep far too deep. I am a woman of 24 years, with a 4 year old daughter. Its coming to a point where its ruining my life, and no I am not a dramatic!

I have always slept very deeply even as a child, but Im not sure if its got worse, or I am just noticing it more as there are more important things I need to wake up for now that Im older. I am currently training to be a health professional, as you well know this involves hospital shift work- but 90% of the time I am late, which is having a bad effect on my name. I have 5 alarms set, of which, some are close to my head and others further away- sometimes its a case of me 'snoozing' them, sometimes they are still going off four hours later, and I never heard them at all.

Im afraid because if an emergency happened with my daughter, how could I wake up? Its my half term at the minute but not my daughters, I managed to get her in on Mon, but late! But woke at 11am yeserday and 10am today, both too late for her to go. This is now worrying me more than ever- as its starting to ruin her life too!

It really does not seem to matter if I go to bet at 10pm, or 1am, the result is always the same. Dont get me wrong, if I start something new, like a job or something, I will probably wake and get in on time for about 3 days, then it will be back to normal. I now pay my mum money to come to my house in the mornings, and physically kick me out of bed (which usually takes her about and hour, and apparently with some verbal abuse). What sort of life is this?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
