Falling asleep on the highway

Hello, I am having a problem with my partner waking me up all hours of the night. I do not know what to do, no matter how much I ask him not to wake me up during a work night, he will not stop. Once I am awake it is very hard for me to fall back asleep whether we have sex or not. Even if we have sex right before we go to sleep and he will still wake me up!

I have told him this is dangerous because I am not getting enough sleep and constantly falling asleep on the highway during the morning commute. I even stopped spending work nights at his place for a bit- but he just started doing it again. Please help!

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
