I've been waking up at 4am (not by choice) every day for the past couple of weeks. Melatonin hasn't worked. I'm not sure what to do.

Sleeping pill as long as it's temporary. You could also try some breathing exercises. I have a lot of sleeping problems due to anxiety and breathing exercises work best for me.

WSJ just had an article about this yesterday, look it up. In general, try different sleeping pills that release doses more slowly

I've tried breathing techniques, but they only work at night prior to going to sleep; they don't seem to work when I wake up at the break of dawn. Not sure that I love the idea of sleeping pills, but I might have to bite the bullet and go to a sleeping specialist.

I finally got diagnosed with ADD, inattentive type, at 28 years old. I’ve known I had depression and anxiety for years, but the symptoms and treatment never added up. It took WFH in a pandemic to realize maybe I had ADD, and still months of being dismissed and made to feel like I was crazy before I found a doctor to administer the MMPI. I feel validated, finally, but I can’t help feeling grief too over so much lost potential and unnecessary failure, especially in law school and my career.
