Problems waking up.
I recently got married and my morning routine is driving my wife crazy. I am what my friends call "the atomic sleeper" - I have slept through fire alarms, frat parties, earthquakes, etc.
My work requires me to be up by 6am and at work by 7am. the problem is I can't seem to get up. Prior to marriage I would set about 5 different alarms at the loudest level and start them for about 2 hrs prior to when I have to get up. My current alarm clock is called the sonic boom - it vibrates the entire bed and the volume for the buzzer is significantly louder than any fire alarm i have ever heard. AND THIS BARELY WORKS! It tends to just annoy my wife enough to spend the time to wake me up.
To help myself wake up I sometimes have to take caffeine pills right before I go to sleep so that my body is "alert" around the time the alarm clocks start going off. I know this is not healthy and I would very much like to find a more homeopathic or healthy cure. Has anyone else dealt with such problems before? How did you fix them? Is there a test I could get that would help. Is this something that I can fix?
PLEASE HELP ME BEFORE MY WIFE KILLS ME!!!
