A few of you out there who pretty much got used to me know that I have a constantly thinking mind. I am very energetic and sometimes even hyper. I also have insomnia. I usually survive on four hours of sleep. This has been going on for about six years. No, I'm not on meth or crank or any of that yucky stuff, either. I don't like polluting my body.
For the past three months or so, I have been having scary episodes where all of a sudden, I feel like I'm going to fall asleep. I could be in the middle of throwing frieght, having a conversation, reading or driving. I get real dizzy, and I usually am not able to snap out of it until I actually sleep. Until then, my mind is fuzzy, I can't focus. I actually have cut my hand pretty bad because of it. I know when it's going to happen. I can't control it and I feel helpless. Those close to me know it's bad when I say "Oh no, I'm going down again" - at that point I'm ready to pass out or faint or fall asleep, or whatever I do. I call it "zoning" out.
I need all of you BF doctors out there to give me opinions (besides "go to a doctor"). That is unobtainable at this moment.
