Sleeping. It's such a wonderful thing for most people, and for the most part, it's equally as wonderful to me...for six out of the seven days of the week, at least. It's hard to explain why this occurs to me, but it just happened and hasn't really stopped. I can't really consider it insomnia. It only happens typically once a week, and on the same day every week. Sunday. Sunday is a god forsaken day to me. One night on a Sunday night I simply had one of those occurances where you just can't sleep. Even the best night time sleepers experiences "one of those nights" every once in while, but for me it continued to persist. The rest of the days of the week went by smoothly and I slept very well. Then Sunday came around again and I just couldn't help but remember the struggles I had sleeping the past Sunday. With all that on my mind, I failed to sleep again. Similar traits followed literally every Sunday to come. When I don't have to be up early on Monday mornings for something like school or work, however, I tend to sleep well without any problems, but I have discovered that is because I have no pressure to wake up the next day. I fail under pressure, and it's emphasized with my fear of not being able to sleep on Sunday nights. I have personally diagnosed it as "Sunday Night Insomnia" though I know it isn't insomnia. Though that could be a matter of opinion. I would like help from people and for them to give me their thoughts. Your efforts of comfort would be extremely appreciated. I miss being able to sleep through Sunday nights. I don't want to consider prescription medicine. I believe that is far too addicting. I hope someone and help me figure out how to fix this in my head. I miss it a lot and hope this problem doesn't carry over to the other days of the week.

He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
