For most of my life I've had bad sleep problems. Sometimes they disapear for a day then they're back the next most of the time it's managable but it still limits me and sometimes I just can't do anything.
My symptoms are:

I sleep 9-12 hours and I'm still tired the next day
My body doesn't tell me it's tired and I lay awake for hours trying to get to sleep
when it's really bad I can't concentrate, I can't get my mind to process information
also when it's bad I get really sensitive to sound, touch, and temperature, making me get annoyed and angry easily
when it's under control I fall asleep around 7 and wake up at 5 and still feel a little tired but I can do more
I go through highs and lows so I can't keep a job or go to school, or do anything socially at night because I never feel awake enoughSome of my other problems are, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and asperger syndrome. I think it's possibly my pineal and adreanal glands aren't working right, but all the doctors I talk to say that that would be SAD's but I know it's not that.
