Juggling family, work, and social lives can cause insomnia in women. Add to that the effects of pregnancy or menopause, a partner who snores, or a condition such as arthritis or depression, and you have a potent recipe for sleep disorders that are more likely to affect women - often more severely - than men. Worse, many women's sleep disorders are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because their symptoms differ from men's, or their doctor is unaware of how unique female biology affects sleep. "Can't Sleep, Can't Stay Awake" will help the reader understand why and provide answers to their sleep problems.Written in a clear, easy-to-read style, and packed with useful case studies, this comprehensive guide covers: What healthy sleep is and how much we should be getting every night; sleep problems unique to women; how family, psychological conditions, and the 24/7 world can cause sleep problems; and, how to combat specific disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia that may be causing your symptoms.
