I don't know what it is, but my body has decided that between 9-11AM each day will be "naptime." I've bemonaed this in other threads before, but haven't really come up with any good solutions.
It started with just weekends. I'd go to bed around 1 AM, wake up at 7-8, and then fall back asleep around 9-10 and sleep till noon-1PM.
Then, a few weeks back, it started happening at work. Same story - sleep around midnight-1, wake up in pain due to a bad bed that I've since replaced, and then feel like I want to sleep around 9.
Even now, with a new apartment, new bed, and so on... it's still not better. And it doesn't seem to care what my previous night's sleep looks like. I still do this "Dozing" thing where my eyes are closed, my head bobs, and I jump at the slightest sound. All I can think about is how much I don't want to be sleeping, and how much trouble I'll get in if I'm caught.
In general, my sleep patterns involve trying to go to bed at 10-11, listening to youtube videos to fall asleep for about an hour, finally falling asleep between 11PM and 1 AM, and waking up between 6-7 AM depending on how I've set my alarm clock. When 9 AM rolls around, my usual way to counter it is to go and buy soda/caffeine/snacks at the local store, which lasts for about 30 minutes of energy, and likely a long restroom break. My diet is crap at the moment, something I'm hoping to change starting today.
I'm really getting worried that I'm going to get in trouble at work. After lunch I'm extremely wide-eyed and bushy tailed and very productive in the afternoon, but my mornings are usually filled with reading the most boring documentation for IT known to man, and if I force myself to do work it only ends up accounting for keeping me going for 10-15 minutes at a time. I really am getting sick of this, but nothing I'm trying is helping...
I don't want to make it seem like I'm hiding anything or leaving out any important information, like the last thread I started here. I'm still not healthy... that's my next goal now that I've got my apartment. But I just want to stop falling asleep...
Edit: Thinking about it, this started about a month or two ago, which was about a month or two after I started on 40mg of generic Prozac. Isn't drowsiness a side effect of anti-depressants? I know there are some people who take their meds in the evening to counteract that sleepiness...
Looking to get rid of some 2005-2010 era Star Wars vehicles/toys. If interested, please PM me.
