Sleep is a basic human need, as important for good health as diet and exercise. When we sleep, our bodies rest but our brains are active. Sleep lays the groundwork for a productive day ahead.

Narcolepsy: Definition, Symptoms, & Treatment

Posted by Dr. Mauricio Reinoso, ASC Medical Director on Mar 14, 2020 10:01:00 AM

But for the most part, when we're awake, we're awake, and when we're asleep, we're asleep.

Now try to imagine what it would be like to live with a condition in which you rarely ever felt fully awake and hardly ever felt fully asleep; existing in a perpetual state where your life always feels caught in between the two, and without a moments notice may suddenly slip from one to the other.
