" I had my eyes open but it seems I was just dazed while driving. When I hit the curb it startled me. I really don't want to have a bad accident like this. What's happening to me? I searched on the internet. Could I be having seizures?
" I get dizzy sometimes when I stand up suddenly. I also get a lot of headaches. Could I have a brain tumor? I crave food all day long but I don't like eating breakfast except for a can of Coke, and then I have a Rockstar at lunch. I have a mean teacher in school. The class is so boring I keep falling asleep. My grades are dropping but that's because of my teacher."
" I doze off at work and can't help it. My supervisor is mad at me. I have no idea why that happens. I try my best to stay alert at work. Please help me. I don't want to lose my job."
" I operate heavy machinery. I drink energy drinks every hour to stay alert. When I go home I have lots of chores to do. By that time I feel I am completely spent. It seems that my body is just falling apart. I used to have so much energy.
" I don't need much sleep. I wake up on my own at 3 am. My mind is ready to go. I do my problem solving at that time. But my mind stops working later in the day. I don't know what's wrong with me. My blood sugar levels keep fluctuating and my blood pressure has been high. It never used to be like this. Whats happening to me?"
" I nurse my baby twice at night, and in between I sleep really soundly. But I am really tired with no energy all day. I have not even gone back to work yet but I get so tired just doing the small chores at home with my baby during the day. I try to nap when she is sleeping but it is so hard to turn off the mind just any time. Could I be depressed?"
" I have no time for fun in a day. I go to school, then sports, then I do home work. I am so tired. Life is a drag. All I can do to socialize is be on facebook and text my friends when I am in bed. They are all up till 2 am. They don't have any problems, and it takes me a long time to fall asleep any way. Why am I having problems?"
" I drink half a pot of coffee in the morning and a couple of cans of soda in the afternoon. I like the taste of these drinks. I have put on 20 pounds in the last year. I think I need to exercise more. I sleep just fine. I need to have the TV on all night to sleep well and I wake up to go to the bathroom a couple times. No big deal, right?"
" I just crave chocolate. I love desserts. I have put on a lot of weight and I feel tired all the time. I sleep just fine but I am not a morning person. Everyone in my family is that way. Our minds work best at night."
" My whole family is feeling a lack of energy. We are all a tired, sickly bunch. Could it be something toxic in our house, like black mold? My wife snores so loudly she keeps waking me up. She says I snore even louder. My son snores too. Its so funny our house sounds like a train station at night. It's hilarious. "
" I am under a lot of stress. I am having trouble at my job because I can't finish my projects in time ever. My girlfriend is not happy with me because I have completely lost interest in sex. I am so tired all the time. I sleep fine. It just takes me a couple hours to fall asleep so I watch TV in bed. Is that a problem?"
" My husband is the one with the sleep problem not me. He works on his computer all night. I have started sleeping in a separate room because I have to go to work the next morning. I let my cat crawl into bed with me. I don't like to be alone in bed. What I don't get is why I feel I have no energy? I can't enjoy anything any more. My regular doctor prescribed an antidepressant but it has not helped so far. Could I have some bad disease?"
Sleep is the glue that holds the body and mind together. They did not realize it until they saw a sleep doctor who could put two and two together for them.
Its time to wake up from the slumber! Pun intended.
