Actually, I'm in the middle of writing up my thesis. Suddenly, something crossed my mind.. I feel like I'm nobody.. It feels like I'm trying so hard to this and that...then I forgot to be what I want to be.. Looking at people around me, I feel so small.. (low self-esteem?)..hmm.. I always saw everyone else as how lucky they are..they have everything needed in life..
Uh.. I hate myself whenever I have this feeling.. I guess.. I have to try HARDER...
till next time.....
( a reminder to myself : you don't know what other peoples' life is all about).

Sleep Disorders (source: Yahoo! Health)


Sleep disorders involve any difficulties related to sleeping, including difficulty falling or staying asleep, falling asleep at inappropriate times, excessive total sleep time, or abnormal behaviors associated with sleep.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

More than 100 different disorders of sleeping and waking have been identified. They can be grouped in four main categories:
  • Problems with falling and staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Problems with staying awake (excessive daytime sleepiness)
  • Problems with sticking to a regular sleep schedule (sleep rhythm problem)
  • Unusual behavoirs during sleep (sleep-disruptive behaviors)
Insomnia includes any combination of difficulty with falling asleep, staying asleep, intermittent wakefulness and early-morning awakening. Episodes may come and go (be transient), last as long as 2 to 3 weeks (be short-term), or be long-lasting (chronic).
Common factors associated with insomnia include:
  • Physical illness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety or stress
  • Poor sleeping environment such as excessive noise or light
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol or other drugs
  • Use of certain medications
  • Heavy smoking
  • Physical discomfort
  • Daytime napping
  • Counterproductive sleep habits:
    • Early bedtimes
    • Excessive time spent awake in bed
Disorders include:
  • Psychophysiological insomnia: a condition in which stress caused by the insomnia makes it even harder to fall asleep
  • Delayed sleep phase syndrome: your internal clock is constantly out of synch with the "accepted" day / night phases; for example, patients feel best if they can sleep from 4AM to noon
  • Hypnotic-dependent sleep disorder: insomnia that occurs when you stop or become tolerant to certain types of sleep medications
  • Stimulant-dependent sleep disorder: insomnia that occurs when you stop or become dependent on certain types of stimulants
Disorders of excessive sleepiness are called hypersomnias. These include:
Problems may also occur when you do not maintain a consistent sleep and wake schedule. This occurs when traveling between times zones and with shift workers on rotating schedules, particularly nighttime workers.
Sleep disruption disorders include:
  • Irregular sleep-wake syndrome
  • Jet lag syndrome
  • Natural short sleeper (the person sleeps less hours than normal but has no ill effects)
  • Paradoxical insomnia (the person actually sleeps a different amount than they think they do)
  • Shift work sleep disorder
Abnormal behaviors during sleep are called parasomnias and are fairly common in children. They include:


The symptoms vary and depend on the specific sleep disorder.

Signs and tests

Tests vary and depend on the specific sleep disorder. A sleep study (polysomnography) may be done.


Treatments vary and depend on the specific sleep disorder.

Expectations (prognosis)

The outcome varies with the type of disorder. Some disorders may go away without treatment.

Calling your health care provider

Call for an appointment with your health care provider if lack of sleep, too much sleep, or unusual sleep behaviors are interfering with daily living.
Sleep apnea should be suspected in people who snore loudly, wake frequently to urinate at night, and wake up in the morning unrefreshed.


The following can help prevent many sleep disorders.
  • Regular sleep habits (such as going to bed and waking at the same time every day)
  • A quiet sleep environment
  • Regular exercise
  • Staying generally fit and healthy

9 months..


Syukur Alhamdulillah.. 9 months of blissful marriage..
I'm so thankful for having a loving family, a wonderful husband and great in-laws..
May Allah always be with us and guide us..

For those who wants to get married, be prepared.. even if you know your partner for ages, when you get married, things are going to be have to know him/her from the start, all over again.. and please.. expect the unexpected..
As a wife, you have to be more patient..dealing with your work and household chores..sometimes will make you want to explode when you are tired and knowing that nobody will help you on certain things.. and things are going to get tougher when you have kids..(i don't have a child yet, but i have a gut feeling it's going to be challenging..based on my observations).

I'm so grateful for having a great husband.. Mr Mohd Salleh.. thanks for helping me and be with me.. in sad and happiness..

Remember Allah always.. and be yourself

Now, I want to concentrate on my Masters..
For those who have question(s), please ask directly to me.. i don't like people talking on my back.. haha..

until next time...
