You think the Obama economy is a nightmare? Try one of these sleep disorders on for size?


The employment report released this morning, in all deference to the Presidents comments that the United States is on the right economic track, was nothing short of abysmal!

The creation of a paltry 160,000 new jobs were expected by the typically incorrect economists, and true to form the actual number came in at an even more paltry 116,000.

The President commented that the "April job growth reflects a 'good news' trend, but 'we've got to do more' for economy."

At some point that same old tired rhetoric loses any vestige of the credibility it may have once had with anyone in the first place.

President Obama should stick to the one talking point he thinks he has, although controversial, of spiking the football on the killing of Osama bin Laden.

That said, some of the sleeping afflictions on the following list could potentially be an even bigger nightmare than the prospect of 4 more years of the Obama administration! (Note: I suffer from RLS or Ekbom Disease so I do not taking sleeping disorders lightly!)
  1.  
    Exploding Head Syndrome

    This syndrome is similar to the reaction I had hearing the statement from the President about the economy being on the right track. " 

    "Okay, exploding head syndrome doesn't actually involve detonating domes. This creatively-named disorder occurs during the onset of deep sleep, when the person is suddenly startled awake by a sharp, loud noise. These noises range from cymbals crashing to explosives going off. To the person hearing them, the explosions seem to originate either from right next to the person's head or inside the skull itself. There's no pain involved, and no danger, either. Doctors don't know what causes exploding head syndrome, but they do know that it isn't associated with any serious illness."
  2.  
    Night Terros

    This sounds like the reaction I have when facing the prospect of an Obama prime-time speech that preempts important regularly scheduled programming like the re-run of a Curling match played in 1965!"

    "Screaming, thrashing, frantically pacing — night terrors earn their name, both for the person experiencing one and for anyone around during the event.
    Unlike nightmares, which arise during REM sleep, night terrors happen during non-REM sleep, usually early in the night. They're most common in children. The person in the midst of a terror may suddenly sit upright, eyes open, though they aren't actually taking in the sights. The person often yells or screams, and can't be awakened or comforted. In some cases, night terrors mix with sleepwalking. Parents have reported children wandering the house in a state of panic. After 10 or 15 minutes, the person usually settles back into sleep, according to the National Institutes of Health. Most don't remember anything about their episode the next morning.
    The cause of night terrors is a mystery, but fever, irregular sleep and stress can trigger them. Fortunately, according to the ASA, terrors usually fade after age."

And if you're so inclined, try and equate one of the sleeping disorders to a political reaction that you had or still have.
