Question: I’ve not been officially diagnosed with DSPS, however, I am most certain I have it.
I’ve tried very hard to remain on a normal sleeping schedule. But even when I have nothing to do at night, this quickly just turns back into staying up late. When I do manage to get to bed by midnight (and fall asleep) I can only maintain this schedule for a couple of days until, suddenly, one night I can’t sleep until 4am. I don’t really consider it all that bad since I feel I’ve pretty much always been this way. However, my poor body must feel horrible with the caffeine I bombard it with when having to work days. Because if I don’t bombard it with caffeine when I have to start work at say, 7/8am, I simply cannot focus. At all. But I have tried to fix it to no avail. I miss being a kid and waking up at 5am feeling refreshed and wondering why adults need to sleep so late. I’ve tried everything, but I’ve just come to the conclusion that I’ll just have to live with it :). I’m a survivor, and nothing can stop me. Even if I’m a complete zombie and comepletely unable to focus :D.
