My problem is pretty embarassing to me. It's hard to even write about it to the general public because in my eyes, if I were just "adult" enough, I would get up when my alarm went off and go and start my day. But that's not how it is with me. I am a 24 year old female and ever since college (could have been the start of it all) I do not/cannot wake up when my alarm goes off for work. I don't understand what is wrong with me or why I can't just be like everyone else who wakes up in the morning and starts their day. I dont have insomnia and I dont have trouble actually falling asleep.

So here are the details: If I have to wake up to an alarm I DO NOT want to and will hit the snooze as many times as I can before I know i'll be late to work, and I get up; I'm still dead tired no matter how many times the snooze is hit. If it's the weekend and I can sleep just until I naturally wake up, everything is fine, however if it's the weekend and I have to set an alarm for something specific, I do not want to wake up. And no matter how many actual hours of sleep I get, it's the same story everytime.

If I go to bed on a weeknight at 9pm and have to wake up at 8am, I am still trying to stay in bed, and that is 11 hours of sleep! I am wondering if there is something deficient in my diet, or if I just need to not be such a baby about sleep. I feel really stupid coming in to work really tired looking when I've had ample sleep.

Does anyone have any ideas or know anyone simliar to me? Be honest, and if you think I just need to grow up, tell me. This is getting old really fast!!!
