Hi,
I'm a 19 year old student and I've experienced sleeping problems for the past 4 years or so, however this is the worst it has ever been. At the moment I usually manage to get to sleep at around 5/6am, and then if I dont have to get up for class I can easily sleep until 2pm. Even if I do have to get up for class, say at 9am, I still cant sleep until 5am that night. This abnormal sleeping pattern is really inconveniant as it means that for the rest of the day I feel really tired and find it extremely hard to concentrate, I find it hard to participate in conversation and find myself saying strange things that don't always make sense, I have trouble processing information (e.g. reading that I have to do for uni), and I have terrible memory loss (I can't remember what I have done the night before, whether I have eaten that day, I ALWAYS forget what I was about to say in a conversation, etc.). I feel like this problem is affecting my personality - I feel less confident and I find it much harder to socialise now. I have some ongoing problems with depression however at the moment I am not in a period of depression. Does anyone else experience these symptoms? Does anyone know of anything that can help? I would really, really appreciate your suggestions.
Thanks
