    Good article.

    Not fond of the sleeping man picture. Especially after a neurologist this week tried to convince me I had hypersomnia and needed to get (yet another) sleep study. She didn't want to hear that I wasn't sleepy in the daytime, just fatigued.

    Good Article. Comments are welcome.

    It may be that approaching 'Healthy magazine' about the picture and where to find more appropriate ones is an option.
    It says that healthy magazine is distributed to many Dr offices/practices--so I wonder if this article is in the print edition--that would be brilliant.
    Also, I think this is the young man responsible for the article: http://newsline.byu.edu/487/resume/MichaelRichardson.html

    The magazine is based in Utah.

    Not once in the more than twenty-five years since my ME diagnosis have I felt sleepy. This is a change from my pre-illness experience. I've often wondered if it means something.

    For me, daytime sleepiness usually means that 1) I exerted too much or 2) allergies interfered with my sleep or 3) random anxiety interfered with my sleep (usually a couple hours and then it spontaneously goes away).

    However, I don't recall being substantially more or less sleepy prior to illness onset.

    huge difference between normal tiredness and enjoyable sleep

    and having to sleep from ghastly draining fatigue from hell, then wake up worse
