I don’t wake up until 4-5pm so hitting snooze buttons in the morning while I’m still awake makes very little sense.

As many times as it is necessary for me to be ready to face the day. Technically I don't hit the snooze but that's because I have 3 alarms set in 5 minute intervals lol

I know I’m late to this party...just found this poll when searching for the new one about the snooze button, but wanted to tell you this:

When I was working outside the home, I would OFTEN hit the snooze button MULTIPLE times without realizing it. I literally had to put the clock across the room so that I would have to walk to turn it off, to keep myself awake long enough to realize I was doing it.

I didn’t realize until over a decade later that this is actually a CLASSIC symptom of one of the rare sleep disorders that I was diagnosed with.

If you have to do this every morning, I HIGHLY recommend that you have a sleep study done! It has literally changed my life being on a med that helps.

I read about putting the clock across the room about 30 years ago. I did it for a while, but I got to where I would get up, hit the snooze, go right back to bed, and be asleep before the alarm went off again. I figured if I was gonna do that, the clock may as well be by the bed. Lol!

Back when I still used a normal alarm clock, I would hit the snooze button every morning. It got to the point where I was snoozing for thirty to forty minutes (hitting the button three or four times) before finally getting up. It simply didn't work when I set it to wake me up when I actually wanted to be up. I consider the Echo an improvement because talking out loud seems to take just enough mental capacity to start the wake up process.

I only hit snooze without being conscious of it a handful of times. That said, I've had this doubt in the back of my head that I might have some sort of undiagnosed sleeping disorder. I find myself falling asleep no matter how well rested I am after a little less than an hour of sitting still. I've thought about getting it checked, but I'm not sure what would be involved. Could you tell me how it was for you?

I'm twenty, if that helps.

When I was a teenager, my mom would have to wake me up repeatedly every morning. She would wake me up and I’d come eat breakfast, then fall back asleep. Then she’d wake me up, and I’d dress, then fall back asleep. Then she’d wake me up and I’d put on my makeup and do my hair and fall back asleep until time for the bus.

Then, on a bus with fiberglass seats, no padding, with kids 4 to a seat, and standing packed like sardines down the aisle, on rutted dirt roads with one lane runner bridges, I’d fall asleep and sleep all the way to school. Once I got to school and HAD to function, I could, but sometimes fell asleep in classes if I didn’t have work to do. Then I’d do the same thing on the bus on the way home from work.

As an adult, if I had to sit still to do work, I had to FIGHT to keep myself awake. Later, as an adult, I had to put the alarm clock across the room.

2) See if this describes you. If it does, I’ll give you the link to the article about it, and you can do more research online. The test to find out if you have this is the MSLT.

“Those who suffer from idiopathic hypersomnia have recurring episodes of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). These occur in spite of "adequate, or more typically, extraordinary sleep amounts (e.g., greater than 10 hours per night)."

Sleep is usually deep, with significant difficulty arousing from sleep, even with use of several alarm clocks. In fact, patients with IH often must develop elaborate rituals to wake, as alarm clocks and even physical attempts by friends/family to wake them may fail.

3) Despite getting more hours of sleep than typically required by the human body, patients awake unrefreshed and may also suffer sleep inertia, known more descriptively in its severe form as sleep drunkenness (significant disorientation upon awakening).

Daytime naps are generally very long (up to several hours) and are also unrefreshing, as opposed to the short refreshing naps associated with narcolepsy. Sleep paralysis and hypnagogic hallucinations may also occur, as well as motor hyper-reactivity.”

Btw, before I was diagnosed, every morning, when I woke up, I felt like a TRAIN had run over me. I had never woken refreshed in my life, and could sleep up to 18 hours a day and still not be refreshed.

AmericanWolf For the Benefit of All

That sounds somewhat accurate. I've noticed major improvements now that the earliest I wake up in college is 7:15 (and 9:15 or later on most days of the week) instead of 5:45 like in high school. I don't hit snooze very often anymore, partially because my roommate never wakes up after me and I don't want to disturb him, but I still need at least 45 minutes to get ready because I'm so tired when I first wake up.

I take midday naps frequently and they usually don't help much. Even more so if I don't have anything I absolutely have to do. I struggle to stay away in classes that are just lectures, which is why I sometimes take my phone or a notepad out just so I have something minimally distracting to do with my hands.

Over the summer or breaks in high school, I used to be in bed for upwards of sixteen hours on some days. Always slept on the bus and in class more than I care to admit, despite being an otherwise great student. Again, it's better now, but not perfect.

AmericanWolf For the Benefit of All
06/15/19 12:32 am

So yeah, not sure that fits perfectly, but enough lines up that I would love more information. The biggest difference for me is that I've never been a heavy sleeper. It's not like I'm up at the drop of a hat, but my former roommate woke me up moving around the room nearly every morning.

Thank you for your help. I've been putting off getting it checked by a medical professional for years because I wasn't sure if the symptoms were enough to be significant, but I think it might be worth it now.

AmericanWolf For the Benefit of All
06/15/19 12:37 am

The 'elaborate rituals' thing really hit home. I have a whole routine in the morning of things that help me to wake up. The usual stuff like stretches and water in the face are a part of it, obviously, but I also need to do a few mental tasks to be actually functional. I've taken to either playing a quick round of chess on my phone or reading a news story out loud to myself. If I haven't woken up naturally (without an alarm clock), I usually need to do something like that to hurry along the process of actually being awake enough to function and not fall asleep again.

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
06/15/19 12:38 am

That sounds almost exactly like my life! Here is the article I got that from:

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiopathic_hypersomnia

If this sounds like you, I would suggest doing some more research on both IH and narcolepsy, if you have ever fallen asleep in the middle of a convo with someone or while driving, etc. But I’m leaning toward IH.

Then, you need to get a doctor’s appointment with a pulmonologist (lung specialist...but they’re the ones that specialize in sleep disorders as well). Ask him to not only do an overnight sleep study, but also an MSLT (multi sleep latency test).

2) This is where they can diagnose this disorder. After you spend the night for the regular sleep study, they have you stay the next day, until early afternoon. They wake you up and you have to stay awake for so long and then they have you take a nap and test to see how quickly you fall asleep, then they wake you up and repeat this cycle several times. It’s VERY hard to do if you have a condition like this because all you want to do is go back to bed, and it’s hard to stay awake.

Do you have foggy thinking? In the mornings, do you feel like you have the flu, aching all over, etc.?

Also, I can give you a recommendation for a medicine that has really helped me, if you go so far as to have a sleep study done.

I haven't used an alarm for years. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Check the income filters. Not a coincidence

Not a coincidence that they're basically the same regardless of income?

Never. Usually wake before the alarm anyway

I don't press it at all. I just turn my alarm off out of rage and frustration and go back to bed anyway.

It doesn’t make sense to set the alarm any earlier than absolutely necessary, so there is no time for snoozing when it goes off. It's either time to get up or it isn’t. If it is, I do, and if it isn’t, the alarm shouldn’t be going off yet.

No. I have problems with insomnia and waking up when I sleep and if school allowed me to, I'd sleep until
3pm every day. I have to set it earlier to snooze because if I don't, I'll feel so exhausted that I can't even think until 30 minutes later, which is when I need to leave. When I set it earlier, it allows me to wake up slowly and actually be able to put my shoes on the right feet.

I've been missing my morning Differential Equations class in the morning for the last few weeks. My saving grace is that the professor can't teach anyway. I don't know why, but I've been sleeping through my alarms. I have 3 loud, annoying alarms that go off for 15 minutes at a time, yet I haven't been waking up recently.

Maybe. I'm not sure what could be wrong though.

I know I’m late to this party...just found this poll when searching for the new one about the snooze button, but wanted to tell you this:

When I was working outside the home, I would OFTEN hit the snooze button MULTIPLE times without realizing it. I literally had to put the clock across the room so that I would have to walk to turn it off, to keep myself awake long enough to realize I was doing it.

I didn’t realize until over a decade later that this is actually a CLASSIC symptom of one of the rare sleep disorders that I was diagnosed with.

If you have to do this every morning, I HIGHLY recommend that you have a sleep study done! It has literally changed my life being on a med that helps.

I don’t use an alarm. I go to work when I wake up.

I set my alarm clock 10 minutes back so that I can hit it once.
