AKA non 24 hour sleep wake syndrome. My sleep hours can be delayed every day so that within a few days my bedtime has gone completely around the clock! After awhile (couple months or so) it stabilizes and then repeats this cycle. But I may wind up sleeping during business hours for awhile, which makes it hard to get things done. I can also be awake for 1 to 2 days. I'm afraid to drive after being awake almost a day and have found myself falling asleep for a few seconds unexpectedly. On occasion, I will sleep for 17 to 18 hrs. within a 24 hr. period. It is impossible to work this way and I need to support myself. Any ideas of how to do this? Does anyone know what will resolve this sleep problem? Your help is greatly appreciated.
