I went to bed early last night, with the intention of getting up early...

...but woke up hours later and wasn't able to go back to sleep. I'm dead tired but can't get any deep sleep. I finally did fall back to sleep (about the same time that I usually do) and sleep well until my dog work me up.

Have you tried any medications?

@TheInvisibleMan ~I have tried many medications with no success. An enlarged prostate certainly doesn't help matters, either. I was going to bed about two or three a.m. I wanted to change to a regular day schedule last fall (to enjoy the limited daylight in Winter) but somehow ended up on a midnight shift schedule.

@flpoolbum I think you should look for a specialist.

@TheInvisibleMan ~The midnight shift sleeping is not so bad, I preferred the midnight shift whenever possible when I was working. I finallly got some medication to help with the headaches, which is a great relief. But I should ask about it AGAIN. I never really got a good answer before.

Lucky you lol. I have a sleep disorder. No matter what time I go to bed I am up at the same time every day. Hopefully some day they will be able to use all the blood they take from me for research to make a medication to help others.
