  1. Hello everyone, I have been soooo frustrated lately by my inability to get to sleep at a reasonable hour despite how tired I am! I've recently read about delayed sleep onset, which is where you get tired at a normal bedtime (around 10 p.m.) but can't sleep until well after midnight, and that describes me exactly! Once I fall asleep (usually between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.) I'm dead to the world until almost noon unless I have to get up before then. (Of course as everyone on this board knows, that's much easier said than done for us). It's just frustrating that I feel like total crap in the morning and afternoon when everyone else in the world is functioning, then I get my "energy" around midnight when everyone else is asleep! Maybe I should make friends with some people in India or China so that I have someone to hang out with, LOL. Like last night I was tired around 8-9 p.m. and almost wanted to go to bed that early, but then I went to bed at 10:30 and laid there with my heart and mind racing for more than four hours (though I got up on and off). Just to clarify, I have this problem no matter what time I wake up, not just when I sleep in late. Obviously that contributes to my difficulty working when I'm tired and dizzy all the time anyway and then can't even get to sleep. I searched the forum and found some really old threads that mentioned people with sleep difficulty taking melatonin and that helping. Has anyone here tried that or found other solutions to a problem like this? Also, have you done actual sleep studies or can a PCP just write a script for this? Sorry for the long post, but I know so many of us here have enormous difficulty in the morning, so I wondered if a lot of us also share the trouble of delayed sleep onset.
