I have tried everything I can... at the moment I get about 5 hours of sleep a night and I get up around 5:30 A.M. I know that I should get more sleep, but I just can't. I don't have the time in my life to go to bed at 9pm. But I can't stop myself from falling asleep in my first 3 periods of the day...
Notice how I said 3. Exactly 3, every day. Namely the third class. I used to sleep in later ones, but my 4th period is physics and I've found that I need to be on constant alert in that class or I fail the tests. But the reason I sleep so much in my 3rd period is because it is just... so... perfect for sleeping. I have economics, which I don't find very intriguing. And my teacher always keeps the room at a comfortable 78ish degrees. Something about the room just makes me want to use my backpack as a blanket/pillow and fall asleep in my chair, every day.
I'm starting to get worried. Today I slept through about 80% of the period, and on top of that I had a very weird dream. Not only am I concerned that my grades will slip, but I'm a little bit afraid that I might blurt out something in my sleep.
I already drink coffee in the morning, I don't know what else to do short of using a shock collar. I'm already struggling to hold onto B's and C's (I'm normally an A/B student), and I can't afford for my grades to sink any lower. Please, does anyone know how I can keep myself awake?
