About

I have been suffering for the past 7 years with a rare sleep condition called Idiopathic Hypersomnia.

The love and support of my friends and family has motivated me to start a blog.

    This blog is about sleep conditions, chronic illness and raising awareness of Idiopathic Hypersomnia. I myself, have Idiopathic Hypersomnia. A chronic neurological disorder marked by an insatiable need to sleep, that is not eased by a full night’s rest.

    I explore the daily struggles of a chronic illness. This blog is a place for me to vent, help and find help, about living with a chronic invisible illness. Hopefully it allows you all to have a better understanding of the daily struggles and provides an insight into my sleepy lifestyle and of those around you who might also be struggling.

    Why ‘But first let me take a nap’?

    After so many years of dealing with excessive sleepiness, ‘but first let me take a nap’ has become my catchphrase. I must say it a good two or three times a day, and it definitely comes up when trying to make plans and when arranging my life.

    It is a rule I live by. Check out my post – Importance of Sleep Hygiene to better understand the meaning behind the name of my blog.
