I've never felt so connected to bats.
That's funny! LOL
What other specific emotional/mental symptoms do folks' patients report (or you observe) when they are sleep deprived?
Is it possible to have the presenter's full name and title?
People become easily irritated, cannot focus
Sending again to all attendees -Of course BH here, and looking more at sleep as a symptom than the inverse - but I see it A LOT that when I ask further regarding sleep issues, there is often a trauma component impacting that patient's status.
Working with children (mainly foster/neglected children) I see a lot of irritability, mood swings, and tend to sleep during the day die to not sleeping at night
It seems that those engaged in peer support activities would have some of the LImbic system needs fulfilled and perhaps assist with ability to sleep well. Anecdotally it helps, but was this part of any of the studies?
Reginald: the presenter is Dr. Todd Wahrenberger, Chief Medical Officer at Pittsburgh Mercy. His contact info will also be displayed at the end of the session
Decision making is affected
I also believe that individuals who have trouble sleeping are more prone to sicknesses such as colds or flu
Struggled in relationships and motivation
Thank you Andrew
Alyssa: I suspect anything that stersses the body is going to affect sleep.
Oh yeah- so much 'yes' to what everyone is typing in about these diverse cognitive and emotional correlates of poor sleep. Great point about physical ailments and sleep too
Yup- slides and the recording will be available at PCDC.org/sleep in a few days and we'll share out the links once available
Timing - reminds me of book "change your schedule, change your life"
It's amazing how much of what can 'feel right' when it comes to trying to sleep actually does the opposite for our sleep in the long-term. It makes it complicated to manage ourselves without following some specific steps (but possible!)
Thanks to everyone who has been sending in questions and comments- keep 'em coming. Our Q&A period is coming up in a few minutes
therapistaid.com has a lot of good resources with Spanish translation handouts
Thank you Dr. Wahrenberger for such an excellent presentation and thank you Dr. Philip for organizing it! Enjoyed it a lot!
