    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I can sleep through anything. I sleep threw alarms that vibrate, flash lights, and are extremely loud. I have three alarms set in my room a little fast and they are positioned so I have to get otu of bed to turn them off...problem is I never hear them...just sleep right through it. I am on thin ice at work and would be devistated if I lost my job over something so ridiculous. The house could be on fire and I would probably sleep through it. I have also tried going to bed earlier and not drinking to soon before bed. This has been an issue for me my whole life. PLEASE HELP

    Hi Amy,

    I really encourage you to start a new discussion on this so others have an easier time of finding your post and sharing their suggestions.

    To do that, hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you want) and Submit.

    Have you discussed this problem with a sleep specialist?
