    I fall asleep at the wheel

    while driving sometimes and wake a few seconds later, I fall asleep on break at work while sitting, if I am bored, I get overly drowsy. I really must study up on this condition better and monitor my condition better as well.

    Scared to Take the Test

    Too say I have been tired is an understatement.  But I am, all the time.  I have been for years.  It doesn't matter how much sleep I get I am tired.  I finally went to the doc for it.  He did some blood tests and found anemia.  The problem was that...
