ARE YOU "BURNED OUT"? 


MILLIONS SUFFER FROM SERIOUS SLEEP DISORDERS
THAT RENDER THEIR SLEEP INEFFECTIVE.

Many do not even realize that they suffer from sleep-related illnesses:
...medical disorders that can damage their health and rob them of the energy to enjoy life.

-They may know that they are tired, or not functioning as well as they once did--but without recognizing how dangerously sleepy they have become. They may blame their symptoms on long work hours or stress: without realizing that they suffer from medical problems that can and should be treated.

-They may think that their bed partner's complaints about their snoring and sleepiness are exaggerated...and find it impossible to believe that heeding those warnings could save their lives and their health.


CAN YOU RELATE TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING?

Wouldn't I know if I snored horribly or stopped breathing in my sleep?

Probably not unless someone told you about it. Sleep is the one time we cannot "watch ourselves". Some people quit breathing hundreds of times a night and it never wakes them up!
 

"I wasn't asleep! I was just resting my eyes."

Sleepy individuals are often the last to be able to recognize their sleepiness. This fact accounts for what highway patrolmen look for when determining whether a wreck resulted from falling asleep: a lack of any 'skid marks'. Sleepy drivers usually don't recognize their impairment and make no attempt to brake. The consequence? High impact crashes with high mortality rates.


If you are among the millions of people who suffer from a significant sleep-related illness, you should learn more--because your problem may be serious, and because there is something you can do about it.
