I have never had the problem of not being able to fall asleep. Instead, my sleep problem is different and is embarrassing at times.
There have been numerous incidents when I have found myself losing interest in the middle of a lecture, meeting, anything that requires me to just sit and listen. As a result, I find myself dosing off uncontrollably. It gets more embarrassing when the meeting is only a few people and it is clearly noticeable that I am struggling to stay awake. Even more, when I am confronted by the speaker and I have no explanation! This even happens when I know that it is important for me to grasp what I am going to listen to. I just lose control over it for some time.
Anyone else faces anything like this? Is this ADHD related? I have only seen people having trouble falling asleep, but not the other way around. Help!!
