    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
    Thanks

    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.

    Have you discussed this problem with a sleep specialist?
