Is this a prob?

I'm only able to sleep for a few hours at night. I'm not able to sleep right away (like 3 hours after I get in bed, yeah off to dreamland!) and sometimes I can sleep the whole night, but then the next day I can barely sleep at all.

Sleep is a funny thing sometimes. I have the same problem sometimes. Are you stressed about something in your life? If you are worried about things when you are trying to sleep it can be harder to doze off. The nights that you sleep well are probably nights when you are too tired to worry.
The other possibility is your activity level. Is your job slow and boring? Do you spend a lot of your down time sitting around, or are you active. Your body gains energy two main ways food and REM sleep. If you have a boring job and/or you are a couch potato, your body may not recognize that you need sleep.
Here's what I do when I can't sleep.... If I recognize that I am stressing about stuff, I read. It does a much better job distracting your brain than TV can. If I don't seem stressed then I reflect on what my days have been like lately. Have I been lazy, or inactive? (sometimes my job is busy, sometimes very slow) Then the next day I get extra chores done around the house, or get a workout in, what ever I can to stay busy.

It's a bit of a disorder. You'll be fine if you pick up some habits or stuff when you sleep that will make you tired.
