Sleepyhead

'Boy, are my eyes tired!  I had REM sleep all night long.'I’m so sleepy all the time.  I can remember being this way with my first pregnancy.  I could drop off to sleep no matter where I was at or what I was doing.  I’m the same way now.

It’s embarrassing how sleepy I can be.  I fall asleep in the middle of my sentences or in the middles of someone else’s sentences.

A speech therapist was at my house, the other day.  We were working on helping me with my memory problems.  She was teaching me, at least trying to, find methods of coping with it.  What she didn’t realize is that I already have all the coping mechanisms I can handle.  I know more than she does about MS (multiple sclerosis).

We were in the middle of an exercise when I suddenly fell asleep.  The next thing I knew she was standing next to my chair.  She  asked me if I was okay, with great concern in her voice.  I laughed and she looked even more concerned.  I asked her if I fell asleep.  She said she wasn’t sure what happened.  I then explained to her that I had a bit of narcolepsy.  I went on to explain to her that most days aren’t bad but that on other days, if I were to tally up the waking minutes against the sleeping minutes, I wouldn’t be sure which would win.

Sadly, this was a major reason why that I finally gave up driving and sold my car.  I didn’t want to fall asleep at the wheel.  I had already had incidents where I knew I was going to fall asleep or felt in danger of falling asleep while driving.  I had to pull over several times.

I am a musician/composer who has traveled around the country as a freelance musician. I live and breathe music. I was struck down by MS (Multiple Sclerosis), and my life changed dramatically. I continue to write and compose music but I do it from home. One day, I came across a web site and saw candlesticks on a chart. I was curious about them because they looked rather like musical notes to me. I clicked on the site, which took me to Forex.com. I read a bit about it and learned that trading was a method of making an income, so I downloaded a demo. I didn't do anything with the demo account for a long time. I did watch the charts daily and learned how to use the platform. Mostly, I was intrigued by the movements of the candlesticks. They fascinated me. I began to get the urge to trade, so I started playing with the demo. I then came across a system I wanted to try, which I did using the demo account. The rest is history. I fell in love with trading. There is something musical about it. In particular, you never know what it is going to do next, which is oftentimes true in music. You think you know the next logical progression of a new piece of music and you anticipate it, but oftentimes, it surprises you and goes along a different path. Sound familiar? I'm a trader now, newbie for 7 years, but a trader.
