I'm starting to work with Glycine and will be taking 1 tsp in distilled water two times per day...I sleep pretty good with my sleep combo that I've posted here, but glycine has been brought to my attention for arthritis help too. Turns out many can be glycine deficient as it's most in meats and organ meats. So, more info to try to help us.

There is a lot of info about it...for sleep, arthritis and well being in general.

Heart

When I get upset and can't sleep I find listening to The Donald calms me down so I just drift off.

After I get up again, I have some breakfast and some coffee and stay awake, in misery for the next 3 to 4 hours. I fall back to sleep again around noon after a little lunch then awake again around 1:30. I usually feel ok by then so I stay up until suppertime. After supper I usually fall back to sleep pretty easily for a while. Then I stay awake until I fall asleep for the night, about 3 or 4 hours, then it starts all over again. I don't sleep a full 8 hours ever, it accumulates over a day. But I feel it's not enough.
Maybe the daytime sleeping is confusing your body clock, I'd try and last the whole day without sleeping. You could also try missing a complete night to see if that resets your sleep rhythm. I can identify with the cereal snacks in the night, I used to do the same and it worked when I went through a bad time in my teens. Not sure about the tea as it has caffeine, milk would be better.

I get up between 1 and 2 AM and am generally up at least 1 sometimes 2 hours. I really try NOT to eat anything and only have a sip of water while I'm up. I sleep my longest between 3 -6 AM.

I'm just not going to sleep all night. Ever. It's just not in my biological clock. That would be as unnatural for me as never going to sleep at all. I've stopped obsessing about it and just enjoy my quiet hour or two in the middle of the night to either watch a movie or read.

I truly believe more people lose sleep over worrying why they aren't sleeping instead of just making the most of the sleep they do manage to get.

Everyone is different. Whether it's through naps during the day or sleeping long stretches at night we all seem to sleep either at night, during the day or a combination of both.
