To help answer your question, I would describe what the NIMH / NIH demands of their patients. They must be in bed no later than 11:00 PM and no earlier than 11:00 PM. Similarly, we weren't allowed out of bed until exactly 7:00 AM.

Circadian rhythm can be critical in addressing mental illness. One of the researchers on my floor was Thomas Wehr, who was at the forefront of study in this area.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
