June 2 Meeting Overview

On Saturday, June 2, we had a great meeting. Our members on the conference line had a very interesting discussion spanning a wide variety of topics. There were questions about the use of Nuvigil and Adderall together as well as concern about how to start a support group locally. Some of the people in our group call in from as far away as Florida, Massachusetts or Missouri while our home base is in the Chicago area. Although we love making contact on the phone and through emails, there is nothing quite like a face to face contact that you can make with a support group that is physically rewarding.

We do understand the challenges of putting together a support group and our steering committee would be happy to work with any of our members who might want to start their own groups.  Just contact us via email and we will do our best to answer your questions or, if we can’t, we will find someone who can.

While our long distance members were involved in a discussion, the local members were advised of the date for the Sleepy People Conference, sponsored by the University of Chicago. We are very excited that this day long conference will be sponsored in our own “backyard” so to speak. The date is scheduled for Saturday, July 21. The place is the University of Chicago’s Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. The topic is Sleepy People (like you and me). More details will follow.
