Need help? Sleep disorder...
Posted 31 January 2012 - 12:02 PM
I switched day and night sleep cycle. I sleep during the day and I am awake during night hours. It's kinda annoying since I wake up at nighttime and fall asleep during nighttime. I know one of the things to do when it comes to this is to stay awake for 24h, but it seems I couldn't do it properly. I always have some things to do, which require me to be fresh, so I just have to sleep.
I am currently awake for nearly 25h.. It's only 1.00 PM over here and that means no sleep for another 6-7h if I am lucky.
Dunno, should I go to sleep now and make alarm clock to wake me up for let's say 3-4h so I could get some sleep, but still be tired, so I could go to bed earlier? or should I just make my wake up time lower each day until I get back to normal?
This happen to me few times before, but it was never this long in continuity. Last time this happen it was last year I think (also in January) but I fix it quickly after staying awake for 24h straight.

you need to work your night shift, stay up all day and then work a second night shift.
then go to sleep when you get off work from the second shift after being awake for 1.5 days
worked for me when I did the reverse (went from night work to day work)
I've spent my entire life pretending I'm not one....

I went to sleep last night around 9 PM (I didn't even notice when I felt asleep) and wake up at 2AM... and it seems that it didn't matter that I haven't sleep for almost 30h before that.
I hate pills and all those things, I rare even take pills for headache (which do happen often, depending on a weather) and I won't to do it without chemistry.

ps. Coffee doesn't have any effect on me, since I usually drink lot of coffee per day (2-4 cups of a black coffee, not that filter crap) so my body is use to it. I rarely ever drink energy drinks like Red Bull since they are bad news for the heart.
tnx btw Skav.
