Sleep disorders often disrupt attention deficit treatment in children and adults. Expert ADHD sleep advice for catching zzzs quicker, staying asleep better, and waking up healthier.
1. Can’t shut off your mind so you cannot get to sleep…this happened to me until the age of 40!
2. Restless sleep…after age 40 is when this lovely little issue presented itself. Tossing and turning always happened, but once I fell asleep I slept deeply. Now, my sleep is so agitated my hubby cannot get a full nights sleep! Not to mention all the bruises he gets from my punching, hitting and kicking:)
3. Difficulty waking was a big problem until the age of 40. Hubby would pick me up and put me in the shower, turn on the water and wait til it woke me LOL
4. Intrusive sleep is when you are so “bored” you cannot stay awake. Almost like narcolepsy but not quite:) Still, it’s dangerous. I know, when my eyes roll into the back of my head I MUST lie down.
