My sleep pattens are all mucked up - any reasons why?

I sleep in the afternoon & am awake until 12 or 1

Normally i am a 10 pm bedtime girl

Is it the chest infection (so it will go away when I finally get better)?
The antibiotics (so it will go away when I finally stop taking them)?
Or something else?

When I go to the doctor about sleep issues (not often anymore, I just live with being an insomniac hmm) the first thing they always talk about is 'sleep hygine' which sounds iffy but is actually about developing a healthy sleep environment- the fact that you're on the pc at 10.30 at night tells me you're not winding down! Stuff like this can kick you back into a good sleep pattern after a it of upset- lavender oil under pillow, milky drink, and just a bit of calm are all things that will work. Make your bedroom really tidy and leave the window open a crack (I am too scared of spiders crawling in to do this often) have a bath in the semi dark and then go to bed. If sleep issues persist though do go to the doctors. A short course of sleeping pills may be all you need to get your sleeping habits back to normal.
