I don’t know if I necessarily have insomnia, I’ve never been diagnosed with it. I ranch for a living, so I work long, inconsistent hours with a lot of physical exertion. I also started working part time at another farm a few weeks ago. For the part time job, I have to get up at 4ish. I am a very heavy sleeper and always have been. But it has gotten to a point where I’m afraid I’m not going to make it to the job on time. As in hours late. I have a smart timer hooked up to my lamp to turn it on a half hour before I wake up and I have several alarms on my phone with loud, jarring music to help me wake up. I’ve tried going to sleep a little earlier, but I can’t seem to get to sleep and lay awake for a good while, and I’m afraid if I take medication to get to sleep it’ll make it even harder to wake up. I think I might be turning off my alarms in my sleep, but if I put them farther away I won’t hear them. Or maybe I just sleep that hard. The last two days I’ve worked I’ve got up when I’m supposed to leave and I’ve been a few minutes late. Does anyone have any suggestions on a way to wake up in the morning? I’m at a complete loss
