Just Get Some Sleep

Just wanted to put a little bit of information that I recently found out and proved. Sleep is very important. The average person needs at least 7 to 9 hours sleep daily. I never believed that and only slept 4 to 5 hours sleep a night. I recently watched on TV a show call Deadliest Catch: The Bait on which they had a sleep doctor that told them they need at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep daily. They all laughed at him and so did I. After spending 20 years in the Navy I learned to live on 4 to 5 hours a sleep a night. Well folks on Thursday I went to see one of the 6 doctors I am seeing and he also stated the same, but it’s just not what the doctors are saying. I have dementia, diabetes, depression and PTSD. I have had a lot of trouble sleeping and took naps daily for the past three years. My Blood Sugar levels were high and I had thoughts of Suicide. I was having trouble functioning in everyday life. This doctor put me on two different medications for depression and to help me sleep just one month ago and folks I am here to say I haven’t taken a nap in the past 20 days. My Blood sugar levels have dropped. I have more energy and just this past week have been able to do some things that I haven’t been able to do for the past three years. So folks for all you people, who only sleep 4 or 5 hours a night, think about that again. I am 65 years old and a lot could have been prevented if I just got a good night’s sleep daily. I also want to Thank my wife for being so proactive and finding this doctor for me.

God Bless You and get some sleep.
