It is wonderful to read my story written by someone else. My doc's doesn't know what is wrong with me. I am doing my own research and getting there slowly. I am no longer 100% sure its a sleep disorder even though I sleep 12 - 14hrs per day and have a 24/36 awake period atleast once a month. It would be great to talk with you so if you want email me. Some one has to get an answer from some doc!.

: Well, I don't have a problem falling asleep. I can sleep anytime, I love to sleep. I work 8-5. Last Tues. & Wed. I went to sleep after I got home from work. I didn't wake up til I had to go to work the next day. I made it to work on time! But this is not the way I want to do it. My problem is waking up. I never seem to wake up unless I have to pee, have extreme hunger pains, or someone is knocking at the door. The phone doesn't wake me, my husband can't wake me, the alarm doens't work either. I really feel that it's because there's nothing that I want to do when I get up, making me think that it's because of depression. I don't sleep because I want to die or anything, I just want to sleep until I can't sleep anymore. I don't feel all that depressed. I thought maybe if I drank a lot of water before bed, I would have to pee in the morning and that always wakes me. Not going back to bed after using the bathroom will be another problem though. They say people need 8 hours of sleep a day. I think I need 9 or 10. But I want to stay awake for 24 hours in between. I have never been able to establish any regular bedtime or waketime. Anymore suggestions are welcome.
