Observations: People with this disorder become unable to sleep, yet they do feel tired. However, the more curious question is why you're so completely focused on this condition? You have asked (and we have answered) countless questions about it. Are you not curious about this also? It really seems obsessive. We hope the best for you. Please see your own doctors who can work with you personally.
