borderline narcolepsy

Okay, thanks for all of you who answered my "suicide" question this morning. Now I have another, slightly more pressing question.

How the hell do I regulate my sleep pattern?

Lately, I've gotten into a very effed up pattern of sleep--I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat during the day, and I will nap WAY longer than I mean to, and then I can't sleep at night. I've tried not napping during the day, but I still have problems with getting a second wind, and looking at the clock at 1:36 AM going, "shit, I have a 9 am class!"

I've always enjoyed sleep but this seems to have been exacberated since I had bronchitis in early January and was on cough syrup laced with valum. It's also been hella cold here (as I've bitched about previously) and so sleeping comes easy.

I just can't keep being really awake at 1 or 2 in the morning. I got up this morning at 6:30 (at the boyfriend's house, he got me up) and I was pretty awake then, but found out I didn't have my 9 am appointment, so boom! fell asleep and slept an hour longer than I needed to.

I'm also not always waking up to my alarm--I got a new alarm clock with a bigger display and I fear the alarm isn't as jarring.

Okay, the point of all this is--HELP! I want to get normal sleep again. But how?
