As I struggled with energy production even as a teenager. I was always the kid who tired easily and felt sleepy a lot.
I figure my saga started at 1 years of age with the severe food allergies.
I remember how difficult it was for my Dad to get me to wake up to go to school. I don't want to wake up, and I"m 7. And I love school.
Eppstein Barr acute arrived at 10. Then repeated bouts.
In college, I remember I'd get up, cross the room and push the 5 minute snooze alarm- a record was 10 times (fall back to sleep each time your back in bed again).
Visiting friends, slumber parties, us sleeping on some floor- everybody is stepping over me: I'm still not yet awake.
So now I have unrefreshing sleep and when i'm sort of PEM I can- sleep 11 hours (I wake up, just go back to sleep again).
