    I finished reading the IoM report last night.

    Although the heading "unrefreshing sleep" is used a few times, the descriptions used are often more comprehensive.

    Here's an example from the Table 7-1: "Operationalizing the Proposed Criteria for Diagnosis of ME/CFS for Major Symptoms of the Illness"

    It describes perfectly every night of sleep I had (or rather had NOT) in the last 16 years.
    I think at this point it qualifies as torture.

    Seriously, one of the things I miss the most is waking up on a Saturday morning after a long night of sleep, feeling completely refreshed, rested, energetic. Stretching every limb in your body, still recalling your dreams, content.

    It's been so long I barely remember the feeling. It's a nebulous memory at this point, thanks to the brain fog.
