"my very short time at the sleep clinic"

About: University Hospital Aintree

Anything else?

I was referred to the sleep clinic at aintree hospital for my illness and was very un pleased in my time there, I was in for 6;30pm and out for 7;00am . the big problem is. that my problems start early hours in the morning. as I don't sleep till about 5;00am every morning

but I don't really sleep because I sleep walk al the time into my back kitchen to make food wile I am part sleep and part awake. I have no more than 3 hours sleep a night. as I suffer with very nasty sleep problems with shouting screaming. and this all starts when I full asleep in the few hours I have, I have to sleep on my couch as I can not sleep up stirs because I keep my partner awake with me moving up and down the stirs to the kitchen to grab a bite to eat. I start eating from 2;00am off and on till my partner gets up. I do not eat in the day. as my meds am on for mental health makes my appetite very low . so I think i make up for it at night. the few hours i have i suffer with my night terrors so, the little time I had in hospital the nurse most probably never noticed my problem as i was out by 7;00am . I would like to be in hospital for a few days so you can study my illness more better as I no for shore. you did not get the reading you wear looking for as the time was so short .

Kind regards S.J Magaby

P.S my doctor is still waiting for the reports that you have as it as been over a month.
