    I tend to go to sleep at 5am and wake up at 4pm. No matter what I do I can't seem to break this pattern. I hate going to bed early anyway, but I hate waking up so late. They tried changing my meds so that I take 600mg seroquel each night and 200mg in the day but it still makes no difference. Talk about antisocial :laugh:

    lol Are you sure you're not a vampire?

    My sleeping patterns go haywire quite easily, I've found myself in that position before, going to sleep at the time when I should be getting up. It is hard to get out of the routine.

    I'm not too bad at the moment, I leave my blinds open so it lights up the room in the morning which tends to wake me up. Drugs can tend to cause problems with sleeping habits.

    I hope you get back to a normal routine soon.

    I have honestly had the same sleeping patters as you Ruby, it's hell to get out of. My doctor recommended I:
    - only use my bed for sleeping - don't lye on it to watch TV, read, etc.
    - try to do something I find boring before bed.
    - try not to eat/drink caffine after 4:00p.m.

    there's a crap load of info on sleep hygiene on the web. if this becomes a big issue for you i really think you should look into it.

    I spend weeks doing the vampire routine
    I mean as much as I try hard and sleep at night and wake up the day
    magically I turn back to sleeping the day and waking up at night
    tho my normal sleeping days are way less than the vampire routine
