[bksvol-discuss] OT: Sleep disorders

I've wondered if blindness affects sleep. Certainly it
seems that age, does. I have no trouble, fortunately;
if I wake up, which I do several times a nigt, I can
roll over and go back to sleep easily, but my husband
and quite a few elderly people I've known in the past,
as well as friends of mine, have insomnia; they either
read or watch t.v. until they get sleepy again. That's
another nice thing about being retired--one can sleep
when one wants.

Geek or Genius? Or are they the same? We just watched
part 2 of the Search for Cold on our PBS
station--quantum physcists--both. grin
