I have a severe sleeping problem. I can't seem to fall asleep! Once I'm asleep i can sleep for 14 hours if I want, bit falling asleep is a major problem. Most nights i only get tired at 2-3am. I've seen my doctor about this and he prescribed sleeping pills, but for some reason i have a very high tolerance against all pills. They just don't make me sleepy. I've tried everything! Meditating, cutting out certain foods and drinks but I still can't sleep! I study half day and work half day so i need atleast 6 hours but most night i only end up getting about 4 hours. I'm only 21 and hate to think that i have so many years left without sleep. I really don't know what to do anymore, my pharmacist suggested Rohypnol but I don't feel comfortable taking a drug known as a "date-rape drug". Please help, I'm at the end of my rope!
