I suffer from sleeping problems. I don't have any problems falling asleep, I fall asleep quickly and go into a deep sleep for a couple of hours. Then I'm aware that I am dreaming or thinking about totally irrelevant things which ultimately cause me to either, wake up gasping for breath or, kicking the mattress violently. Sometimes this reoccurs every single time I fall asleep that particular night. Eventually, exhausted, I finally fall asleep for another few hours and wake again about 1 or two hours before I am due to get up. I can then fall into a deep sleep again until I get up. Sometimes the first time I wake up can EXACTLY 1:30am and this can be repeated night after night. Obviously there is something subconsciously affecting my sleep and causing me to wake at the same time. This is drastically affecting my quality of life as I'm not getting enough sleep and sometimes I don't know if I can hack this much longer.
