So on occasion I go through bouts of where I consistently wake up before my alarm (like 45 mins to an hour) even though I haven't gotten enough sleep and still am ridiculously tired. I'm going through clinical rotations right now so things are stressful, but I feel like I'm handling it pretty well. I'm just guessing on a subconscious level some anxiety is coming out in the form of backass insomnia. My hours at the hospital are usually very long, so I want to get the most out of the hours I do have to sleep. This problem resolved itself on my surgery rotation when I had to get up at 4 every day last month, but I would prefer to sleep til the 5:30 that I can on this rotation. I have no trouble sleeping in on weekends when I have them off, wtf brain. Has you ever dealt with anything like this? Any ideas other than medication?
