Can you find yourself in these examples of sleep-wake concerns?
Why can’t I get to sleep?
Why can’t I STAY asleep?
Even though I get lots of sleep at night, why don’t I feel refreshed when I wake up in the morning?
My overnight sleep evaluation said I have sleep apnea (Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA), and CPAP was prescribed. But why do I keep taking the mask off in my sleep? Or, simply – why doesn’t it help me?
Unpleasant things happen DURING my sleep. Like: nightmares, or walking in my sleep, or even acting out my dreams, or kicking my bedpartner, or confusing dreams with reality, or waking up in a panic. Can you help me with this?
Sometimes while falling asleep or waking up I feel paralyzed, can’t move at all no matter how I try. What does this mean? How can this be helped?
Why is it that the harder I try to get to sleep at night, the longer I’ll actually stay awake?
I try so hard to follow the Sleep Hygiene recommendations I’ve been given, but that has not helped. (Note, you will find sleep hygiene recommendations on the Information about Sleeppage)
I am a person with narcolepsy and although the medications I am taking for it help, narcolepsy is still affecting many things in my personal life. Especially affected are my relationships with my spouse or life partner, with my children, with my friends; and how well I can function at work. I would like some informed guidance about how I can make it all work out.
