Sources For Sleep Information

Hi everyone, it’s Barnaby here with a word about sleep information on the Internet:

Websites about insomnia, sleep apnea and a variety of other sleep information now proliferate the Internet. While many sites like WebMD and CantSleep.com offer accurate and objective information, others exist solely to promote a given product as opposed to providing reliable sleep information. Those seeking sleep information are often doing so because of signs of insomnia, sleep apnea, clinical depression as well as several other potentially serious medical conditions. In this scenario, accurate and objective sleep information becomes quite important. What is also important is to remember that only a qualified health care provider can diagnosis and prescribe treatment for your particular condition.

Seeking to self-treat from sleep information obtained on the Internet can prove counterproductive, and — in many cases — quite costly. Some less than reputable websites providing sleep information end up selling you expensive, yet ineffective solutions to your particular problem. In the worst cases, those who rely upon faulty sleep information obtained online fail to get the real help they so desperately need. One reason that I agreed to write for CantSleep.com is that I noticed they never pushed a given product or treatment. I have been impressed with the large amount of objective and helpful sleep information provided by CantSleep, and I hope to do my small part by contributing my story which I hope will help both myself as well as my fellow CantSleep readers.

Catch everyone soon,

Barnaby

If I am lucky I sleep 4 hours a night. I always have. If I have a “bad” night, I sleep 1 or 2 hours, and then have to have a nap of 1 or 2 hours in the day. Sleeping pills, barbituates, and narcotics have no effect.
