I'm Sleepy

No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap. ~ Carrie Snow


There was a time, long ago, when I couldn't sleep. I went for days, sometimes weeks, without a restful night. I had a sleep disorder. My doctor gave me various medications, none of which worked. I learned to relax by meditating, but I had trouble actually sleeping.



Not any more. And I may have found out why my day doesn't start until noon.



As part of the profile on Patients Like Me , we select from a long list of symptoms. One of the choices is 'excessive daytime sleepiness.' I didn't even know that was a symptom, but 607 MSers also listed this as one of theirs. Wow. 607 out of 1492 MSers are sleepy during the day.



All of those years trying to sleep and all I needed was MS. I don't have any problem sleeping any more.
