Because it’s a wedding, you should wear something on the more toned-down side - no super busy prints or really eye-catching colors.
A dress like this, perhaps:
I think it also would be wise to double-check with your uncle/his fiance first if the outfit you’ve chosen is appropriate.
And every wedding is different - some brides are super picky about what their guests wear, others could not care less. I don’t have a lot of experience attending weddings, though; my most recent was my brother’s, and I was a bridesmaid, so my outfit was chosen for me by my sister-in-law.
yeah, since I don’t have a lot of experience, I’ll answer this publicly so others can chime in haha.
And not just doctors, but people in general..! I literally waved my sleep study report in my Japanese professor’s face like “I TOLD YOU. I’M NOT LAZY. MY BRAIN WAVES PROVE IT OK.” (…she’s been my prof and student org faculty advisor for 5 years and has been a total bitch to me on more than one occasion.)
Not a problem! :3
I know how terrible it can be, so I’m more than happy to use my experience to help alleviate the suffering of others, even just a little bit.
It sounds like possible narcolepsy to me, but I’m just someone who has researched sleep disorders extensively and has one, not a professional, obviously c’:
It could also be that you have a sleep disorder like sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome that is inhibiting you from getting quality sleep at night and therefore making you sleepy during the day.
Check out that narcolepsy link for other symptoms of the disorder - you may find it includes things you never thought were linked to your falling asleep uncontrollably!
I would definitely see about talking to a doctor about this - they will probably refer you to a sleep specialist and/or neurologist.
The whole process leading up to my diagnosis was a pain in the butt and took way too long, but it was worth it in the end. (even though my diagnosis completely sucks and so does treatment haha. but at least I have a name for it now and proof I’m not faking it/just lazy!)
Also, before I saw my sleep specialist, my sleep cycle was incredibly irregular and therefore exacerbated symptoms to the point where I thought the irregularity WAS a symptom (it kind of is, but not as much as I thought initially) - so in the meantime, I’d suggest to your brother to begin practicing good sleep hygiene. It’ll take about 3 weeks to get a more regular sleep cycle down, but it really is necessary to attempt it very seriously. If he’s still having issues even with good sleep hygiene, doctors will be more likely to listen to him (this is from experience).
In addition to what the link suggests, he should also set aside 30-60 minutes before his set bedtime to do a relaxing activity that he enjoys. He should make it something to look forward to daily. Some suggestions my sleep specialist gave: taking a bubble bath, drinking a cup of tea, reading a book, doing a craft. This gets your brain ready for “sleep mode” - it teaches it that right after the activity, it’s time for bed. You’d be surprised at how trainable your brain really is!
Sleep and wakefulness is definitely something people take completely for granted! It’s a fundamental aspect of life, and people don’t even realize its importance until something in the system gets screwed up :’c
I’ve had some issues with insomnia, but it’s generally more due to my severe anxiety - I’ll fall asleep very quickly, wake up due to anxiety, then fall asleep again very quickly. Obviously the fragmented sleep very much exacerbates my EDS though :’c
There are lots and lots of different sleep disorders (some very common), as well as so many other health issues that can affect sleep, so I think it would be worth it for your sibling to go see a general practitioner, and then possibly get a referral to a specialist if the GP can’t “figure things out”.
Sleep is arguably THE most important facet of our health, so it’s super important to get the best quality you can!
