I think I have insomnia?

Asked: I think I have insomnia?

I have really bad trouble sleeping. I go to sleep around 6 or 7 AM everyday. Yup, I'm up all night… And I wake up around 12 to 4 pm.
I honestly don't know why. Like, I guess it could be my stress.. Or the fact I've been seeing things and maybe I can only fall asleep when my dads awake to make sure I'm safe. << I doubt that is it, but I find it weird that I'm always like.. Gotta fall asleep before dad leaves.. when he wakes up.
I have been having the worst migraines ever and I'm about to go back to public school. I need to get back on sleeping schedule. I have tried to sleep. I can't! I told my dad that I am scared and I can't sleep and all he says is "what do you want me to do about it? There's no one here. You've been watching way to many scary movies." When, in reality, I watched 3 minutes of one 3 weeks ago.
I'm truly scared. Because I'm getting really sick. This is also causing me to not eat regular. Because I wake up so late, I eat one in a half meal a day. My body Won't take more. It'll throw it up.
Help me? I don't think I can go to the doctors anytime soon.. So what do I do? And what is this?

Anxiety fear of not being able to sleep..someone help me please?

Asked: Anxiety fear of not being able to sleep..someone help me please?

I've had trouble with my sleep the past couple of days. Like when I'm falling asleep I have this fear of not being able to fall asleep, and it keeps me from sleeping. My mind will drift off but at the same time my mind starts racing and it frightens me and keeps me awake. And if its not that the I feel my heart pounding in my chest and that keepsake awake. Last night, however, I was more fortunate and just dozed off without a problem, I did wake up frequently throughout the night(like 3 or 4 times) but when I woke up this morning I woke up in intense fear for no reason at all..then when I bought about sleep I got that same fear sensation come over me, even though the night before I fell asleep with no problem. I do have generalized anxiety disorder and panick disorder. Could this all be from the anxiety? If I were to take medicine to treat the anxiety would that let me fall asleep normally again? I did have a temporary prescription of lorazepam(anti anxiety medication) and it worked like a charm for my anxiety, but I have ran out. So if I were to get more lorazepam, and it take it, and it helps my anxiety, then will I be able to sleep well again tonight? I'm in a bit of panick and can't enjoy my life with this fear inside me…someone please help me..idk what to do right now…

Do I have anxiety?! Please answer!?

Asked: Do I have anxiety?! Please answer!?

I have been having intrusive thoughts since late January because of a video I saw on youtube and recently I have been nervous, paranoid, and my heart start racing. This mostly happens when it's night time and when I am laying in bed about to sleep. It barely happens outside and if it does then I only get a bit paranoid. I pull my hair, pray, or tell myself to calm down when this happens. I believe it's anxiety I have. I haven't been sleeping well (insomnia); sleeping really late between 2 AM and 3 AM. Do I have anxiety? I am going to the doctor tomorrow for nausea and for not sleeping well, should I tell my doctor that I might have anxiety?

Do I have bipolar disorder?

Asked: Do I have bipolar disorder?

I have not beensleeping well for the last year or two. not getting to sleep until 3 or 4 AM every day if at all. So i looked up what type of disorders have those symptoms, and it was either Bipolar or Insomnia. I looked at the Mania and Depression symptoms, and I experience almost all of the mania symptoms and several of the depression ones at different times. The more that i think about it, the more it makes sense that that is what i have. Can anyone tell me if that might be what I have or how to prove it? Oh, by the way I am 15 so…

How to catch up on sleep?

Asked: How to catch up on sleep?

I haven't been able to sleep. The first week I just had a little trouble falling asleep, so I would just sleep in an hour or so in the morning to make up for it. Then break was over so I had to get up early for class. My insomnia got worse and I was waking up at 6 each morning. I averaged about 4 hours sleep a night for about a week and a half. The past couple nighs I've been so exhausted that I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, usually around 11pm. If I try to go to bed earlier though I can't sleep and will end up tossing and turning for hours and hours.

So I am way behind on sleep and am so tired. I don't dare to take naps, as i'm afraid that will make it harder to get to sleepat night. I'm desperate, can't even concentrate on anything, headaches, weakness. It's a task to lift my arm or to be typing this. I know it takes about 3 weeks to set a habit, but how do I get back into my old sleep habits? How tdo I get caught up on sleep??

Thanks!

I didn’t sleep at all last night and I have 2 exams today?

Asked: I didn’t sleep at all last night and I have 2 exams today?

I'm in college and I Have a 2 hour exam this morning and then a 2 hours written production to write (essay).

I knew I didn't study enough so I wanted to study a lot yesterday but I kept procrastinating, I ended up starting at 9PM (I had studied a little through the day too).
I had the absolutely retarded idea to take my ADHD meds (meant for the morning), so it would help me concentrate. Insomnia is a very common side effect of this medication. I took 2 instead of one also (I know….I will never do that again for sure). So 80mg of Biphentin (similar to ritalin).

I studied till about 2 AM then I was really tired but when I got to bed, I couldn't sleep at all.

Now I'm super tired and I feel horrible and I don't remember anything I studied.
What should I do?
