Sorry for all the threads recently, just have a lot of things on my mind to share this one is about sleep.
I was told the normal amount of sleep someone should need is 7-8 hours. I go to bed at around 9pm and sleep deeply, through to about 8am. That is 11 hours. If I have any less than this I get really tired the next day and need to sleep during the day for a good couple of hours. Actually, I often have a nap during the day anyway of about 1 hour.
I was just thinking, that seems like a lot of sleep. I don’t have any condition which should affect my sleep - except all I can think of is that I have mental conditions which maybe cause me to become mentally fatigued.
So as well as asking about myself - if anyone knows if this is normal - I thought this would also make a decent discussion about what your sleep pattern is like, and whether you feel your disability has any affect on your sleep pattern? Also a place to share tips for those having trouble with sleep.
Thanks for reading!
