im 14, for the past 2 years ive been having sleeping and anxiety problems (im posting about sleeping problem here)
i havent gone to school the past 2 years, the main reason is the anxiety but another reason is the sleeping problem, i am interested in disorders and came to the conclusion that i might have Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder (DSPD / DSPT / DSPS) currently, i go to bed at around 5-7am and wake up at 1-3pm, i feel most comfortable sleeping during the day time, and it is quite difficult to sleep during the night. i only manage to sleep during the night when i get sick, mainly migraines, but ill wake up a few hours later when the migraine is reduced to a headache, and i just rest til it goes away then just do whatever it is i do during the night. sleep deprivation proved to be successful, that is, in giving me a migraine... and unsuccessful in sleeping peacefully. when i went to school i would only go about 1-3 days a week. my mom would try to force me out of bed but i almost never got up, i would just ignore the alarm clocks, and eventualy my mom just gave up on waking me up. when school was over i would play on my computer, try to fall asleep at 9pm, give up at 10pm, play computer til 3am, and finaly i would be somewhere close to my preferred sleeping time and i would accualy manage to fall asleep. during 9-10pm i would constantly move around never able to get comfortable, then at 3am i would magically get all comfortable and fall asleep. i cant think of anything else to say... so please ask me questions if i was too vague, also if i mispelled or if somewhere i completely went off topic forgive me im bad with things like this. i posted on Jetlag because i read on en.wikipedia.org/wiki/delayed_sleep_phase_disorder "Attempting to force oneself onto daytime society's schedule with DSPS has been compared to constantly living with 6 hours of jet lag; the disorder has, in fact, been referred to as "social jet lag"."
