Getting out of bed early gives me severe agony

I am a nightowl and mostly because I hate going to bed since I never fall asleep, at earliest I can fall asleep at 2 AM and in all my life it has been a horror having to get up in the morning. When I have no engagements I sleep until lunch time. I dont even eat lunch I get up at lunch and have coffee, then later I have some sandwiches so my only meal is dinner unless im working. I struggle even getting out of bed that late but I do!.. I cant remember a single day in my life that I woke up feeling rested so obviously something is seriously wrong with me since ive never felt rested my whole life. I can even vividly remember my first day of pre-school and crying hysterically out of agony having to wake up early. It was an actual horror-level experience for me that I never got used to.
I am not working right now but lately ive started getting up at 7 AM anyway because they are doing construction work on the building for a couple months forward and they are the very loudest in the morning, of course... I am highly noise sensitive too. I have a phobia of loud noise and it sends me into panic attacks if I cant escape it so its a whole thing. In times like these it is debiliating and ive had ocular migraines as a result this week which is something I luckily get rarely but it is for me triggered mainly by intense stress. My eyes were flashing like crazy last night... Anyway all that forces me to get up early so I can get ready and quickly head outside for a few hours so its an extremely hard time for me now mentally. I am close to getting this job right now so i'll soon have somewhere to be anyway and likely have to keep getting up really early which is great but i'll just never get used to it. I dont believe feeling rested is a thing but people claim they do after a nights sleep or a nap so something is just wrong with me then

Is It Normal?

  • I feel like I'm a natural night owl because it's very easy for my sleep schedule to get turned around to where I'm up all night and sleep in late, and I am typically a big night person and not a morning person at all, but I get up at 6 a.m. to go to work every morning, so have had to adjust. Typically, getting up at that hour and not napping during the day enables me to be tired enough to fall asleep at around 10 p.m. I also like to settle down and get relaxed for a couple of hours before bed (I don't like to eat or exercise too close to bedtime, and like to get a bath or shower in not long before bedtime because it relaxes me). I think having a good bedtime routine helps.

    I don't know much about sleep disorders, but perhaps you suffer from one? It may be worth looking into. On the days you get up early, are you napping at all before nighttime? Long naps or naps too close to the time I'd like to go to bed tend to prevent me from getting a good night's sleep.

  • Man I wish I could sleep in. I wake up after six hours like clockwork. Doesn't matter when I go to bed. It's annoying and I always feel tired too.

      • I'm a night owl too. Does it mean it sucks to wake up at 4am when duty calls? Of course. Does money to override that feeling? Of course. Having a monster nearby also helps.
