Tired? Sleepy? Is there a difference for you? Insomnia, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or daytime hypersomolence or some of each? What is your problem?

"Thoughts of Sleep"
The common subjective problems that lie with the issues of depression, pain, and sleep have many similarities. The cost of treatment of these problems are also a concern, not only for the providers but the patients themselves. So in that light, I ask you, "What do you think is the most important component which should be first, treated first, and why? Is it chronic pain, depression, or sleep?"

To start this blog off to a sleepy start, I will attempt to share with you a little about me and how I feel about the needs of sleep. First, I have spent a great part of my life sleeping. You have too. But before we just cast that aside, please realize the 4 basic needs of life: air, water, food, and sleep. Yes, without it, we will die. Really. So we cannot take sleep lightly. The past 17 years I have had the interest in sleep and the past 8 years practicing within the area of sleep medicine. After being hit by a sleepy driver in an auto accident 8 years ago, I made up my mind to do more about the problems associated with sleep. So now is your turn, tell me what you have noticed about sleep. Thank you for your input.
