Chris was a lazy husband according to Erika. He could manage to sleep anywhere on the earth. If she is busy shopping at a local store, he could manage to doze in a standing position handling the shopping trolley. It’s been more than 10 years they were married to each other, but she failed to understand whether it was a romance or his laziness lacked the spark from their marriage. On weekends, if they are sharing an electronic screen together she would have all her ears to TV while he would start snoring within few minutes.
She observed when her eight year old twins would beg to their daddy to go out for camping or something, Chris would make some or other excuse. All she could see him lying on the sofa or closing his eyes while others are busy in chattering. Even romance seemed has gone out of their bedroom. Erika could not sleep peacefully since her husband would snore all night. Slowly she made herself sleeping arrangement by shifting to hall.
When Mr. and Mrs. Stewart sent them invitation for the party, she had to nag Chris to take her and children to the party. At party, everyone was enjoying; raising toast several times, laughing and giggling and tickling their taste buds by digging themselves in mouthwatering dishes.
When Mrs. Stewart took time off from attending many guests, she came to Erika. Erika started chatting with her, but Chris had a very little talk. Suddenly Erika’s attention went on her husband’s side. She saw all men were busy with talking and sharing, but her husband Chris was dozing off. At one moment she got so furious, but she calmed herself as she didn’t want to make a scene over there.
At home, the scene was completely different and so her anger. She realized that something was wrong with her husband and finally she decided to talk. She herself booked appointment to visit Dr. Evans. However, before going to doctor she expressed all her concerns from the bottom of her heart to her husband and that was the moment when Chris realized that something was really wrong with himself and with his marriage.
All they needed a medical counseling and a right advice. Dr. Evans explained about narcolepsy and how those sleep attacks affected the quality of their life. Erika realized that her husband wasn’t lazy but was a narcoleptic.
He was given Provigil as a part of his treatment. Since he had narcolepsy and so were the sleep attacks while in the middle of talking, eating, watching or even working. Narcolepsy greatly affected their relation, marriage, Chris’s bond with his children and wife and in fact everything. But fortunately the day he started taking Provigil 200mg, Provigil put a full stop to his sleep attacks.
He was no longer sleepy, tired, boring or as per Erika’s words lazy. Provigil stimulated wakefulness, alertness, concentration and energy in him that it improved overall quality of his and his family’s life.
So do you have a happy ending?
