I have been like this for as long as I can remember. I cannot wake up in the morning. Not like I hit snooze a couple times but I have to set 2 alarms hours before I actually have to get out of bed. In high school my mom had to come in and physically get me up because I would sleep through the alarm.
Now as an adult, it's really starting to bother me. If I have to be up at 7, I am continously waking up later and later. It'll creep to 7:15, 7:30; etc. I am consistently running late and frantically getting ready for work in the morning because I just can't seem to get up.
It's not DSPS because I don't really have a hard time falling asleep. And the amount of sleep I get really isn't a factor either. It could be 6, 8, 10 or 12 hours! I still can't get up. I could easily sleep for 12 hours a night if I didn't have to get up.
I really don't think it's because I'm just a heavy sleeper or not a morning person. Does anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions? And no offense to anyone who wants to help but it's NOT that I need to go to bed earlier, get more exercise, etc. Any feedback is appreciated!
