@bigchi I don’t know if waking up and eating through the night is an ADHD thing or not. But it was on the questionnaire I filled out for my assessment so maybe it is.

The feeling faint and feeling like you have to eat right away when you’re hungry could be an indication that something is wrong with your blood glucose levels.  It sounds a lot like hypoglycaemia. You might want to talk to your doctor about getting tested.

There are also alarm clocks that have increasing volume, similar to wanderquest’s lamp. And you can get a bed shaker to go with them.

Another thing I find helps sometimes is changing what I use for an alarm. I switch radio stations or use the buzzer or use one of the alarms on my cell phone. My latest trick is using the voice recorder on my phone and recording a reminder or a silly message for myself to use for the alarm.  It sometimes works. Nothing is ever 100%.  Like @wanderquest said: I still freaking hate mornings.
