I get these phases from time to time, where my sleep routine goes completely WHOOSH out of my control.
I suffer from social anxiety and mild manic depression, if it has anything to do with it. Even if all seems to be going steady, alright, for a while, suddenly I decide to stay up all night. And then, despite the fatigue and readiness to fall asleep whenever, I remain awake (besides maybe 2-4 hours a day)... I think that I have something going on with time. I mean, I don't have a real phobia of time running out or anything, but I still feel like sleep takes too much time from my life when I could be reading (though I'm too tired to take anything in), watching movies, drawing/painting. So I force myself to stay awake. At those times, the irrational thinking rules over the rest of the mind. But obviously I am here to seek help, while I feel awake enough, because I've hurt people with this extreme moodiness, and my grades have dropped down insanely and everything seems disconnected. At this stage, I haven't been able to force myself to sleep properly for four days.. Is that something that I should look into, or maybe just a whim of the mind during a stressful school year?
