Procrastination Sleep Deprivation

Patient

Q: I'm becoming sleep deprived for no reason. I stay up late on the internet even though I know I have to get up early in the morning for school. Even though I know I need sleep, I don't sleep until around 3 am. I don't understand. I'm just wondering if there is some type of name for this. When I know I have to get something done, I don't do it until the last minute. I distract myself from doing things like sleeping or homework. I've noticed that if I don't have something do to, I don't overindulge in doing random things like I do when I distract myself from sleeping or homework. I'm guessing the only term for this would be procrastination sleep deprivation, but I feel like there's more to it than just procrastination.
