Weird Sleeping Issues

Hi All,
Im a 22 year old college student who works a second shift job. I can't fall asleep without the television on, if i dont have the tv on i just lay there thinking about random stuff which is more distracting than the tv. I usually get to bed around 3 o'clock. When waking up i hit the snooze buttton without even realizing im doing it. This cause me to sleep for 9-10 hours a day and i end up missing all of my morning classes. I have been told by many people that i snore very loudly, so i think it might be sleep apnea. When i do wake up i feel awful for the rest of the day, which leads me to depression. All i know is i need to get back on track and any help would be very useful.

Thanks,
Tanner

Re: Weird Sleeping Issues

You stay up too late. You need to readjust your sleep schedule and get to bed by 12am if not earlier. Now that you are stay up so late it will not be easy, but can be done.

Loud snoring may or may not indicate apnea. To find out if you have apnea requires a sleep study, but that's expensive. Some sleep clinics offer a home apnea test kit called the Resmed ApneaLink. You take the kit home, put on a waist band, finger pulse oximeter, and nasal tube (very comfortable). You turn it on when going to bed. Turn if off in the morning. Take it back to the sleep clinic and they analyze the data. It can indicate, but not completely determine, if you have apnea and how severe, and if a sleep study is warranted.
