Question: I started high school 3 years ago in September, and the first winter I was there, my sleeping patterns changed drastically. I started lying awake in bed until 5:30am (the time I get up to do my hair & makeup & wash & get dressed before the bust at 7:55am). This has been more and more regular lately, and I’m nearly always late for school, which causes me problems. Mum accuses me of laziness. It isn’t though, I can’t help sleeping through my alarm.
