1. I've been having the same issue

But then i heard a story about a study where they had people in darkened rooms, trying to determine over the longterm how their sleeping habits would eventually work out. If left to their own internal clocks, when would they sleep?

It turns out that most of them slept 3-4 hours at a stretch, woke for 6-8 hours, then slept again for a few hours. Rather than one long sleep period, they woke and slept in cycles.

Made me feel better!

I've been painting and writing a lot into the wee hours, and I really like the feeling of being awake when everyone else is sleeping. The world is quiet and I can better compose my thoughts. That's hard to do with little kiddos that have to be sent to school every morning, though. Mine are all grown up and out of the house. ( One of my oldest just passed the bar exam! )

Here's hoping the melatonin will work for you
