Sleep Deprivation...

Since about the end of October or beginning of November I cannot sleep! Jarren goes to bed finally between 11 and 12 and I can't go to sleep until 2 or 3...I'm actually awake still most of the time when Jake gets up for his job.

I am lucky that Jarren sleeps the whole night, he usually wakes up between 7 and 10 to eat. But rarely is it before 7. I just don't feel like I get any sleep if I go to bed after 12. I can't take sleeping pills, they make me feel groggy. I've tried Ambien and Unisom and it's kinda hard to take them because Jarren doesn't go to sleep until 11 or 12. So if I take them at that time I'm going to be sleeping until noon.

Because of lack of sleep my whole day doesn't start out very well. I wish I could just wake up at 8 and get my exercising done, instead I end up working out at 3pm.

Any suggestions on how to fix my problem? I would prefer to not take sleeping pills, any natural ways? I don't know if my internal clock was just messed up somehow or what...I can't take this much longer though.
