    hi, i wake up after going to bed after an hour, I get back to sleep pretty quick, I get another hour, usually I dream, i get up and eat. Then I’ll go two more hours, and have to stay up a bit, i dream, i forget them fast. Then i go another two, I’m now feeling more rested, then i get the 7th hour, then i lay there and hope for the 8th.
    My ears are ringing and i’ve aged. Also I and then I pee everytime when i get up and it feels really good. I think I’m dying, not that my life means much.

    I have been diagnosed with the narcolepsy that she talks about, i don’t fall asleep at random, i am just tired ALL day long, no matter how i sleep.

    I was proscribed Provigil, but it is expensive. I do not feel “high” or super energenic, but i think it brings me to a “normal” level, awake, refreshed, and actually wanting to do stuff.

    I found that before i was diagnosed and prescribed, my GF would be like hey lets go do something, and i was like nah.. i want to sleep.. But now that has changed

    Try Prayanama. Check with an expert and design your exercises accordingly. You can learn how to do them here or under some good guidance. But changing the exercises is very critical and hence should be done by knowledgeable person to avoid side effects.
    I can assure you that it has helped quite a few people including me and people I know. Things may NOT be cured but they are better CONTROLLED and reduces drug dependencies.
