I know in marketing there is the need to get people to relate eg if giving a figure giving something ballpark to give a sense of what that magnitude means. I hate to say it but women feeling awful or collapsing is just a bigotry people are happy to write off and not try to imagine could happen to them. I think it’s that simple for many. Having said that the sleep thing has been probably the aspect that has made me most rejected and unacceptable to laypersons and medics but those weren’t neurologists Maybe the treatment (I wasn’t aware there was one) helps as it means they can be in that easier ‘do their job mode’ where there is a drug and then a follow up and dosing etc one weird thing to note is that I was taught that most people’s circadian rhythm is nearer to 25 than 24hrs. That’s obviously different to the sleep disorder in symptoms, reality and almost certainly measurable somewhere in your body, but I’m intrigued by what it is they think they can see and if/how that actually distinguishes between the two.
