I find with me I will be able to fall a sleep after laying down for a few hours but can't stay asleep. I will wake up at 1am, 2am, 3am and sometimes stay awake for the rest of the night, and sometimes fall a sleep after a few hours to have to get up for work in a hour or two. I've been so tired lately, but I just can't seem to make my body stay asleep. I always had this problem when I was a kid too. I would go to sleep around 10pm, wake up at 1am or 2am and be up until about 5 or 6am to fall back asleep and get up for school at 7am. And in the last little bit I've fallen back into the same pattern. Sleep for a couple of hours, up for a few hours, sleep for one or two hours and then up for work.

I didn't know what it was like to fall asleep on my own - hadn't slept normally since I was a little kid, and even then it was touch and go. I was on sleep meds that would tranquilize a horse. I never touched caffeine, slept with a mask and ear plugs.
Oddly enough when I started meds for my temporal lobe stuff I now fall asleep. I even fall asleep watching tv sometimes. I fall asleep...drum roll...relaxed. Weirdest thing ever. The meds I take aren't sleep related at all, just I guess getting my brain back on track I now can sleep (most of the time - not when I get too keyed up...).
