People who are excessively sleepy during the day, even after a full night of sleep, may feel a bit like zombies as they sleepwalk from one task to the next... Insomniacs may eventually entertain the notion they are related to Count Dracula at around 2am every night, for nights on end... Children may fear the dark spaces under their bed or in the closet; meanwhile adults may have their own dark brand of haunted nightmares due to RBD or PTSD...
These are all serious sleep issues that need to be addressed, identified, diagnosed and treated.
To honor these sleep challenges, the emphasis of the posts at SHC in October will be on the following sleep problems:
- Sleepwalking and REM Behavior Disorder
- Nightmares and Night Terrors (including those caused by PTSD)
If you have problems with one or more of these disorders and have questions, please contact SHC here.
If you have a personal story you want to share regarding one or more of these disorders, please contact SHC here.
This month's giveaway will also cleave to this theme and will be announced later this week... stay tuned!
In the meantime, look for posts tagged "The Monsters of Sleep," including the graphic you see above, to navigate the posts which best address these serious, but treatable sleep challenges.
