There have been recent studies that found sleep deprivation can cause a multitude or symptoms. The most recent and very interesting one I saw showed a young test subject was constantly aroused from deep sleep but not actually woken up. After a short period of time he started showing symptoms of diabetes.

Sleep deprivation can be very catastrophic to your health if it continues for a long period of time. When I say sleep deprivation I am not talking about getting no sleep for days. It can mean not enough sleep each night or it can mean sleeping every night but not really getting the restful sleep that our bodies need.

Getting a good nights sleep has many benefits. In this day and time more people are finding it harder and harder to sleep. I know that I rarely get more than 5 hours of sleep. This makes my days harder get through. Often I can't keep my eyes open. If I make the mistake of getting a nap that can be even worse. I don't know if I am just getting the wrong amount in the nap or what. I often wake up feeling really bad. I think that the chemical your brain releases when you are asleep is affecting me. It may be that I slept too long or not long enough. Either way I call it a sleep hangover and it isn't pleasant.
