How Well Are You Sleeping?
A study in 2019, came to the conclusion that newly diagnosed ALS patients didn’t sleep well. Duh! I think we all encountered sleep issues during those first months following our diagnosis of ALS; feelings of shock, trauma, worry, and fear. In addition, the ALS symptoms affecting our arms and legs required us to learn new ways to roll over (or reevaluate our sheets and blankets).
But a good night’s sleep is one of the best things a person with ALS can have. Getting a good night’s sleep is super-important for our brain and body’s health. I found this short TED Talk helpful. Sleep is Your Superpower
How has having ALS affected your sleep? What are you doing to improve your sleep? What are your biggest challenges?
