Nikita Smith says:

I struggle with sleeping during the day then stay up at night

Dawn Martin says:

To get rid of panic attacks do this. I had them for 6 years and they terrified me. I had 50 in one day once. Take natural vitamins not synthetic ones.. Vitamin B12. Take Magnesium Taurate and Magnesium Glycinate and you are going to be so well again..I also have faith in Jesus which helps me daily. Check out Dr Berg's videos on YouTube. I learned a lot from his videos and they are totally free. To get rid of Chronic insomnia which I had 6 years do this: go to bed at 8pm every day and wake up at 6 am every day. Stick to this routine without napping in the daytime and your sleep will be fixed. I wish someone had told me this 6 years ago. I really suffered a lot and want to help as many as I can to get over this horrible disease called insomnia. And don't use technology or the Internet 2 hours before bedtime. Do not go to bed with things racing around your mind. God bless and heal you.

I have slept for 4-6 hrs per day for about 2 months, and I have not noticed ANY signs of sleep deprivation. I am an athlete and my sports performance continues to grow and improve, while my muscles also improve and get stronger. Would it be safe to say that I am a short sleeper (SSS)?
