"Sleeping beauty" gene

10 posts in this topic

According to this link, a gene is responsible for extremely excessive sleep in some people.

Interesingly, the gene is apparantly existant in everyone, but is only fully expressed in a few.

Only while you're asleep, and in a very dark place :passifier:

I feel sorry for anyone that has this. Can you imagine how disruptive to your life that would be.

Indeed, that ranks right up there(if not more so) than my anxiety/panic disorder. :blush:

That is interesting. But if this is genes-related, can this be cured? I know it sucks to be sleepy everytime. Imagine spending your life more asleep than awake? :))

I have an illness that makes me almost constantly sleepy, I even fell asleep on the back of a motorbike once (won't be doing that again!). It's not all bad, I get to snuggle up in bed when I need to with my pets.....and of course, I am beautiful lady.gif....well so my fiance says. I'm not so sure when I wake up with dribble on my pillow.
