OMG. I thought I was the only one who suffered with this. I’m a night owl & even if I fall asleep at 10pm (rare!), I’m awake by 3am. Since I’ve started treatment, I make myself get up, no matter what, by 8am. It doesn’t matter if I’m tired..I must stay up until bedtime. I’m a writer & struggled to do this as I felt I had nothing to do at 8! But since I started writing a task list of things I must do in the morning, ie 8am-write 2pages, 10am- go to gym, 1230- EAT! Etc… I’m filling my days and now get tired at night. It’s a difficult task changing these abnormal sleep patterns, but it’s working! Hang in there!❤️
