I have set up my appointment to see the sleep specialist. Should be interesting, since we will be discussing my most recent sleeping problems, rather than say, the sleeping problems I have always had. It makes it rather confusing. While I have no way of knowing what is causing the jerking movements in my sleep, or why I seem to have troubles breathing and such, it will be harder for him to sort out when I already have a long established history of sleeping issues. It is kind of strange really. I have always had insomnia in the extreme, delayed onset and trouble staying asleep. So I know sleep deprivation. But this morning drowsiness is intense and completely unfamilair to me. Usually with severe sleep deprivation I get sleep parlysis, which I am. But I usually get all nervous and hyper during the day and then run out of that boost later. This whole sleeping where and when I should not, I have never gotten before. I really hope he finds a solution to that, since I start my training at work on monday... which means a lot of time reading on the computer and reading from a text all day long in my office uninterupted by appointments... and that has caused me to fall asleep recently... just the can keep my eyes open, sleep then jerk awake, repeatedly. And that will not do.
