    Going On 2 Years

    It Is Manageable

    For now at least.  Mostly it means I need about 10 hours sleep, instead of 8.  8 or less and I'm just very weary and lethargic.  My knees/ankles are achy and heavy, and a little tingly, also I'll feel lightheaded for a long time.  I need an hour or two before that goes away...

    I Can Sleep Forever

    I'm so sleepy at random times. It is so annoying. I get sleepy reading, and listening to people... it is so weird...   Sometimes it just disappears and I am as sharp as a blade... man I am so hormonal.
