Sounds similar to me, I've been off work for a while due to health issues and so my sleep pattern is fubar. I can work now so I'm looking for a job and trying to sort my sleep pattern out but very few things seem to work. Sleeping tablets don't work, I've tried going to bed early and forcing my self to turn every thing off but I just end up laying there. I've set my alarm earlier and earlier each day to try and pull it back to a normalish routine. I've even resorted to leaving the blinds and curtains open so the natural sunlight in the mornings wakes me up but nothing is working so far. I am most definitely not a morning person!
