Narcolepsy well, kind of…..


My life consist of having to time everything I do, every minute of every day. 

I do not get what they call REM sleep. This is the deep sleep that your body needs to, repair, dream, sort through mental issues, and most importantly this is the sleep you need to feel like you slept, to feel rested. From the sleep study they found it takes me twice as long to get there and I don’t stay long enough to really accomplish anything. 

So, because of that little issue, I can not

Drive for more than 30min

Read

Work on a computer, for more than 30min

Take a class

Listen to a lecture

Anything that is more mental than physical, for more than 30 min. Once I do that, I start to fall asleep. Once I get tired it is really hard to not feel sluggish for the rest of the day. It severely limits my life and the things I can and can not do. I love to read, now I can only do it before bed and never for very long. I can not go to the movies, if the show does not keep me interested enough, I fall asleep. I can not drive very far or travel. I can not tell you how many times I have gone off the road. 

So, is this narcolepsy? Idk. It is going to make jury duty on Thursday and Friday awful interesting!!!!!
