Circadium Rhythm Disorders .. DSPS Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome - day time sleepiness
Hi all... Just wanted to share this with you... If your natural sleep doesn't come until early morning hours like 2am - 7am, here is a support group that is wonderful. Wonderul, educated people who all deal with being night only people. A very real disabilty very much misunderstood by the medical field. I know, for I have been this way since I can remember and I'm 54 now. I'm so thankful to have found this group, and to know that it's not all in my head!
So if you want to actually POST to this list, you need to join it at circadiandisorders.org by going to http://circadiandisorders.org/list
and filling out the subscription form on the page!***
This list is a place for people whose circadian rhythms don't quite match up with the rest of society. We're night owls. (Many of us have Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome, or DSPS.) We like to get up late and stay up late. We aren't any lazier than anyone else; we just find it difficult to function at times when our body clock tells us we should be sleeping.
On this list we can vent about bosses who expect us to come in for 7:00 am breakfast meetings, sports competitions with 7:30am starting times, "flex" hours that aren't truly flexible, and other trials of night owl life. We can also share tips for coping, medical info, and job leads for workplaces that treat night owls well. :-)
