Sleepless
So, my doctor order a sleep study, because I snore like frieght train.
So I go to this thing and they put straps all over me and electrodes all over my head and face.

I bet your thinking, man it'll be hard to get to sleep....took me 7 minutes.

Anyway, I got the results....

I stop breathing 3-4 times an hour, which freaks my heart out and wakes me up.

No wonder I am almost always tired. Now I get to go in next week and get fitted for an oxygen tank for when I sleep. (sigh)

Prevailing Condition: blah blah

That sucks man...is there anyway that you can get fixed?

Yeah, for starters, they'll put me on oxygen, for when I sleep.

One of the drugs they use to counteract the daytime sleepiness is Modafinil. Luckily Clozapine is not listed as a drug interaction hazard.

Too bad there isn't a device like a pacemaker that would only semi wake you up enough to start breathing again but not make you fully conscious.

Another drug used for daytime sleepiness in adults is Ritalin. But I don't think he needs that. :)

My body is already doing that for me, but it causes me not to get quality sleep.

And that wasn't even with me holding a pillow over your head
