    Sorry If I am remaking a topic, but I wanted to know if anyone else has serious problems with sleeping. (I'm sure there are a lot of people)

    I personally cant get to sleep. Normal bedtimes are 4-5. However, when I do I am often times impossible to wake. Today I slept through an alarm for an hour and a half, which caused me to be late for work. I'm not sure if this is an issue or just me being stupid. I just want to sleep.

    Does anyone else have a sleeping issue or information about the disorders associated with sleep?

    Sounds like Hypersomnia, where you sleep too long. My advice is to go the the GP, bring a pen and paper, write down everything he can think of, try everything for at least a month, then come back.

    Otherwise, wikipedia has a general outline on these disorders, but you'd be best off on a health website. Try google.

    And good luck. ^__^

    it sounds like you might have some kind of insomnia, a lot of ppl think that just means you cant get to sleep but it can be one or a combination of not being able to get to sleep, waking in the night or waking too early, i get a mix of all three quite a lot, it also has to last for over a certain amount of time but i forget how long (sorry) the best thing i can suggest is either talking to your doctor to find a good way to get to sleep, whether that means meads or a natural remidy or looking up relaxation techniques online

    i hope thats some help :hug:

    I'm the same. It takes me forever to get to sleep but once I am nothing short of a nuclear war will wake me up.

    I used to have a major prob with it, but nowadays I can sleep if I want to (though I often stay up on purpose) I just need to take mirtazapine in the evening and I can usually drift off though. Exercise helps as well.
