    Can't fully wake up until late evening?

    Anybody else experience this? Why do you think? I find that I am not "on" until around 6 PM. I can function but I don't feel alive until around this time. I'm not lazy, I can work my ass off and be around lots of people, but earlier than that it is a drudgery to do either. Is there scientific basis for humans being crepuscular/nocturnal, or is it just some psychological hangup?

    Ugh, me too.. no clue why. I'll just hang out and watch this thread along with you.

    I have the same problem your not alone. Never really thought about it until now though. I tend to stay up really late though so it might be that my clock is a little off.

    ^ I was just going to recommend looking into Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder.

    Since early childhood, my natural tendency has been to fall asleep between 5 - 8 AM and to wake up around 4 PM. I can adjust to a "normal" schedule if I need to, but like you, waking up in the morning leaves me very sluggish and tired until the early evening. Then it's time to party.

    I have done the craziest things to fix it, never to any avail. Psychiatrist told me there was a such thing as humans being "nocturnal" and I practically fell out of my chair.

    There really is biological basis for some people, to be more nocturnal. l've had to fight my own body to resist it


    Seems to act up most in Spring and Summer for me, when it gets really bad, l will force myself to wake up at 5 AM util l get back on a regular schedule, just so l can exhaust my body enough throughout the day to be tired by evening.

    I just drink coffee in the morning instead.

    Yeah, I've checked out that Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder...I suppose that explains any abnormal sleep patterns, since human beings are presumed to be diurnal. That certainly is true if we have to do stuff during the day such as hunt or farm. I'm not sure I believe that it is possible for humans to be nocturnal, although the human race is still evolving, there is no doubt about it. So perhaps over time certain human groups will naturally adopt nocturnal lifestyles. The only problem is that we don't have night vision, so I suppose if some humans actually are nocturnal our evolution towards that is rather specific because we need a source of light at night whereas nocturnal animals need very little.

    I would look into sleep cycles if I were you. But me being me, personally, I never would. Folks always tell me to, but to put it quite frankly, shit sounds boring.

    What about polyphasic sleeping, ever tried that? I think that is maybe the best sleep cycle of all. Being as J as I am it conflicts with my need for schedules but I suppose that napping intermittently can become a schedule in itself once you've done it for a while. Personally I think people need to be more tolerant of nocturnal people or people with weird sleep schedules! If you are a farmer, then fine. But otherwise, lay off and let people sleep whenever they want so long as they come to work on time and are productive.
