This is Melissa- She says, “I’m a 5th Grade Teacher in St. Louis Park, MN and a mother of three daughters. For the past decade, doctors and I blamed my innate exhaustion on the fact that I had just had three children, or that I was a single mother for a while; then it was that I just had multiple hip surgeries, and recovering; afterward it was because I was student-teaching, planning a wedding, and trying to find a new home; the reasons kept piling up. Then this awesome doctor comes along, and she decides to send me in for a sleep test. After my diagnosis, years and YEARS of my life finally made sense! I wasn’t just ‘tired’ and needing to ‘suck it up’, I was chronically tired and needing to listen to my body.”
