I regularly can't fall asleep.   I often can't fall asleep even when I feel tired.   Once asleep, I generally sleep through the night just fine.   It's nearly impossible for me to wake up early in the morning.   Pulling an all-nighter is surprisingly easy for me.   I generally direct my lifestyle to avoid morning commitments. I have delayed sleep phase syndrome, a common form of insomnia.  Sound familiar anyone?  Or as Wikipedia describes it:   Attempting to force oneself onto daytime society's schedule with DSPS has been compared to constantly living with 6 hours of jet lag; the disorder has, in fact, been referred to as "social jet lag".[7] Often, sufferers manage only a few hours sleep a night during the working week, then compensate by sleeping until the afternoon on weekends. Sleeping in on weekends, and/or taking long naps during the day, may give people with the disorder relief from daytime sleepiness but may also perpetuate the late sleep phase.
