I can't sleep. Also, I can't wake up!

I think I have delayed sleep phase disorder. Recently I found an online questionnaire that asked questions about your natural preferred wake and sleep times, along with the times necessary to fit into your actual life schedule. It would then calculate what time you should expose yourself to very bright light, and for what periods of time in order to shift your wake and sleep patterns. I cannot find it now that I really need to change my schedule. Anyone have any idea where I could find this site again?

Who was this nurse who slept very little?

Help me find an account of a retired nurse who required very little sleep. The first night in a sleep lab, she couldn't fall asleep at all. The next night, she slept some absurdly short time (I seem to recall seventeen minutes). She appeared alert and performed well on both days and claimed that she habitually slept very little her entire life. I think I read her story in a pop-science publication five to fifteen years ago.

Two kids, one bedroom: what should we know?

Right now, our 3-and-a-half-year old has her own room, and our one-year-old sleeps in Mommy & Daddy's bedroom. Next week, we're moving the baby into the toddler's room. What can we do to make the transition as painless as possible? How can we make this necessity into a positive experience for our kids? Are we crazy for even considering this? If your children share a bedroom (or if you shared a bedroom as a child), I'd love to hear your advice, warnings, opinions, and anything else you think I should hear.

Why does sleepiness elude me?

As I head into the darkness of winter in Northern England, I'm starting to notice the same pattern I suffered from last year...sleeping even less than I normally do (4-6 hours instead of 6-7). I'm not even sleepy or remotely tired until 2, 3, sometimes even 4 am, when I force myself to fall asleep. I wake up at 8 or 9 (sometimes earlier). What could be happening here, physiologically or otherwise? If it's related to the lack of sun/light, how does that even work? [more inside]
