Am I the only person who has to be the right amount of tired to sleep well?

If I'm not tired enough I toss and turn

If I'm very tired I feel like I'm dying falling asleep and sit bolt upright every 30mins in terror because I feel like I'm dying.

Very much, if I go to bed at 10pm or earlier I will just toss and turn until 12:30am. If I go to bed at 12am I will fall asleep at 12:30am. I wake up at 7am every day for work and I’m exhausted, but I physically cannot sleep before then!!

Same way. If I'm not ready/tired enough, it's just not happening. It kind of sounds like you could be experiencing myoclonic jerks. I get them or sleep paralysis every single time I start to fall asleep on my back. It sucks.

I think it is more likely that I have sleep apnoea but Dr's have never bothered prescribing me a cpap machine. At one point I was getting it so bad that I was afraid to fall asleep which caused a mental breakdown.
