Lizze’s sleep journey

      1 Comment on Lizze’s sleep journey

Lizze and I will once again be spending the day at the Cleveland Clinic.  This trip is dedicated to the sleep doctor.  Lizze has a condition called idiopathic hypersomnia.

Basically, she needs 15+ hours of sleep a day, whereas most people only need 6-8 hours. 

You may remember that for a long time, she was literally sleeping almost all day, everyday.

For the past few months though, in a big fat, ironic twist of fate, she’s been battling insomnia.  She can go days in end without sleeping. Considering everything that we have going on, that’s definitely not a good thing, not that it would ever be a good thing. 

We are desperately hoping that she can get some help. 

I can only imagine that sleep deprivation would make everything worse for her.

Wish us luck……..

I know of a couple of conditions that cause a person to not be able to sleep.  Not good for the body!  Prayers for Lizzie and good results that the doctor will have a way to help her.  Safe travels!
