Some mornings I am almost impossible to wake up. My parents have tried everything, including blasting music, ice cubes, water, taking away my blankets, bribing me, and even physically moving me out of bed. None of them work. I continue to sleep, with whatever means necessary. I will occasionally say things like "fine" or "okay", but when my parents tell me this later, I have no memory of it. I have even gotten up to move somewhere else to sleep, again having no memory of it later. When I finally wake up, its usually 12-18 hours after I went to bed. I did go see a sleep doctor, but after the study, they only found very mild sleep apnea. While this doesn't occur every day, it has been happening enough to cause me to fail courses at school, and I am in serious danger of failing. When it does happen, i begin to experience a lot of anxiety, because going back to school, I have no real explanation for teachers, as to why I was out. This only makes matters worse. If anyone has any insights into it, please let me know. I don't want it controlling my life anymore!!View Thread
