Thats what I like to hear. I've been at it seriously since 2001, after changing careers from the gaming industry to engineering. I'm so glad I made the decision. Its been tough, having a family, working and going to school part time taking distance engineering courses from University of North Dakota (PLUG!!). But, I no longer work for jackasses either Keep at it, you'll also be glad you did it as well.

I take my sig line seriously, sleep is pretty much everything in terms of well being.

One thing that I wanted to mention here about getting sleep is water. Seriously, it seems that this is almost never mentioned as an important factor in the discussions I see on the topic yet it is crucial. I would even go so far as to say that not getting enough water could be the chief reason many do not sleep well. I know this to be true in my case for sure. Many times, if I do not make an effort to drink enough during the day, my sleep suffers at night. Dehydration is the enemy of sleep.

Would becoming completely nocturnal help with the hormone issues?

Not really a suggestion, unless you adore Taxi Driver or nightclubs.
