Problems with sleep disorders/loss of self?

Question by Ryan J: Problems with sleep disorders/loss of self? A few years ago I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, Insomnia, and that I snore. I use Melatonin for my DSPS, and try every night to use my C-PAP for sleep apnea. It just doesn’t seem to work and if I am able to fall asleep with it on I wake up during the night and its off. Ever since I started getting really tired going into high school, I lost a lot of my charm and happiness and started taking life more seriously (too seriously). I still have charm and can still be funny, but I feel like I can’t be myself but in my head now. I cant think up all the jokes or clever things or even just smart things to say anymore. I don’t know what it is, but I think it might be because of my sleeping problems. I’d just like to be more like myself again, and show the world who I am. I know who I am and I can write it on paper just fine, yet somehow I’m having a very hard time expressing it in words or in general. If its not because of my sleeping problems lemme know. Thanks! Best answer: Answer by Dominie Sleep disorders are caused by something going wrong in our brain or brain chemistry. I’m not surprised that you don’t feel quite like yourself, or at least be able to express it. My sleep disorder began when I was 16. My story is at http://www.fms-help.com/insomnia.htm I am now 56. A list of things I’ve tried for sleep is at http://www.fms-help.com/sleep.htm Of course, depending on your age, it could be changes in hormones also causing you to not feel like yourself. But truthfully, having a sleep disorder confuses a lot of things in the body. Sleep is controlled by the hypothalamus, an area of the brain. Hope things get better. What do you think? Answer below!
