Could it be his new meds? I mean, therapy and stress are exhausting and knocked me on my ass for several weeks (along with destressing after quitting my job) but sleeping for 24 hours? ya...that aint right. :hug:He woke up!! I asked if he was ok? He said "Sometimes my body just needs to shut down. I don't know why. But I don't get good sleep during the week."
Is it a physical or mental response? A combination? Idk.
But I don't get good sleep during the week."
The sleep specialist I spoke to recently said they were wrong about that, that they’ve been learning that sleep is far more complicated than they previously thought... and that week long & month long sleep studies are giving them entirely new data sets to work off of, compared to the single night studies that have been industry norm for the past few decades. He said it’s a very exciting time to be working in his field because of the collaboration between compSci & neurology is completely changing the way they’re able to map sleep and the effects on the brain and body.There's really no such thing as catch up sleep. There is a big difference between rest & recovery whilst awake and being sleep deprived.

@G.P. Given your educational background, and the behavior you describe on part of your husband a few posts up, you may be interested in looking into cluster B comorbidity with PTSD. There are some movements that suggest BPD, for example, is CPTSD by a different name. Educating myself on Cluster B has helped me move out of the empathy-codependence trap that my focus on PTSD had me in, and changed my outlook on his behavior to a very helpful degree. My ex’s behavior could not be explained by PTSD alone and that was quite a relief to release.
