I have never been able to get a restful nights sleep in my life. Not to say that I don’t sleep all night–in fact the longer I can sleep the better–but regardless I will wake up feeling tired and be so throughout the day.
If, however, I sleep during the day I only need to sleep for 5 hours or so and wake up fully rested and ready for another day.
I can stay awake through to dawn without feeling tired any night–in fact my feeling of tiredness generally goes away in the evening. Similarly I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat so long as the sun is up.
This is not a goth thing–goth didn’t exist when I was 3 feet tall.
Specifically, when left to myself the way my schedule ends up is that I will quickly get on a night (awake) schedule, but with a 25 hour day. It will start with me falling to sleep about 6am (waking up around noon and feeling rested), with this getting about an hour later every day until I would go to sleep about noon–then I end up staying awake through the day and night to again fall asleep starting at 6am.
I have never particularly researched this and don’t generally mind (traditionally, being awake at night has given me lots of time to think.) But I was just reminded in another thread of this fact of my existence–so thought I would ask.
Is this a something that people have? I’ve never heard of it.
