Background: Male, 17 yrs old, 6'4", 155 lbs.
I run 25-30 miles a week. I do not drink any soda or caffeinated beverages. I am drug and medication free.
I do not eat breakfast and have adapted to the point where I do not feel any need to eat breakfast. I eat lunch and dinner only (with some snacks).
I generally go to bed somewhere from 1 to 3 a.m. with minimal trouble falling asleep. If I go to bed at 12 I usually don't fall asleep for half an hour or more. I am not excessively tired when I go to sleep - only slightly tired.
I set my alarm for 9 hours of sleep (a compromise). I usually get up and turn it off and go back to bed. Later I will not have any recollection of turning it off, but I know I am not sleep walking. I will naturally sleep for 11-12 hours or so. I am comfortable falling asleep after having only been awake for 13 hours.
If I sleep for 8 hours, I am usually very tired in the morning - but I will get over it in a few hours and still go to bed around the same time. If I sleep for much less than 8 hours, I have some trouble thinking during the day. If I sleep for 9 hours, I have trouble getting up but I am okay for the rest of the day when I do get up.
I work from home (summer job programming), so I have no obligation to get up usually. If I do have an obligation, I set 3 or 4 alarms 5 minutes apart and usually I am conscious enough to realize that I actually need to get up by the 3rd or 4th alarm.
Any diagnoses? Thanks!
