how I can go to sleep 6 hours earlier than my current routine?

How can I go about making a radical sleep shift, from going to bed at 6am to going to bed at 12 midnight? I have bipolar disorder which has kept me from working for 3 years, but I have made progress. At my last appointment my shrink said most of my depression and fatigue symptoms were probably due to being out of work and also my bad sleep habits (staying up to 6am watching tv or on the Internet and then sleeping during the day). I now have extra motivation to change since I have discovered I can work up to 16 hours a week for a small but helpful wage (£88.50). How do I go from my nocturnal habits to joining the rest of the world? I have tried going to bed 30 mins earlier but just don't get to sleep any sooner, so the habits are quite ingrained. Any tips for how to change, or advice from people like shift workers who have managed to do this in the past? Thanks.

Link between 'non-restorative' sleep and nightmares?

For the past twenty years or so (I'm 36 now) I have had trouble sleeping. Not really with falling asleep or staying asleep (even though I have had episodes where that was a problem too) but the big problem is I NEVER feel rested when I wake up in the morning. 'Non-restorative sleep' is the term I found after a bit of Googling. Through the years I have tried to tackle this problem in all sorts of ways but haven't gotten very far. About ten years ago I spent a night at a sleep lab but they couldn't find anything wrong with me. Sadly I have gotten so used to the situation that it is not on my mind a lot but lately I've been thinking about what else I could try. [more inside]

How can I stop swallowing air when I use my CPAP?

I have severe sleep apnea (apnea/hypopnea index 66). I've tried various CPAPs (currently a REMstar Auto M Series with C-Flex) and masks (full-face, nasal pillow, currently a nasal mask). The problem is that for every combination of machine and mask, I wake up in an hour or two, generally having swallowed a lot of air, and stop using the CPAP for the night. The respiratory tech says that it's working when I use it - index as low as 6, which is well within the normal range - but I'm so uncomfortable when I wake up that it's very hard to put the mask back on. Suggestions? [more inside]

Why do I always dream about stairwells and elevators?

Whenever I dream, stairwells, elevators, and large buildings with multiple levels always figure prominently. There'd be nothing strange about this except a) my daily life does not involve stairwells, large buildings, or elevators in any way, and b) they're in absolutely every dream I have -- no exceptions. This has been going on for at least a year, possibly longer. What could be possibly be causing this?

Is anybody aware of potential risks in increasing my dose of Lunesta beyond 3 mg? I have found that 3 mg of Lunesta doesn't always (in fact, only half the time) help me to sleep. Since my pills come in 3 mg form, I'm thinking of splitting them and taking 4.5 mg. I'm not on any other medications and won't be drinking when I take these.

You are not my doctor, but I am too lazy to go see one.

at night my legs get sore. It is enough that I will wake up too early and can't fall back to sleep.
