      Hi Dr. Barkley,
      I was so excited when I listened to your presentation about SCT. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, SAD,and ADD. In the mornings,I would wake up staring and feeling out of it. I was arriving late to work to the point that my supervisor gave me a later time to come in to work. I’m so glad that there is a name for how I’ve been feeling. If you know of any studies, I would love to be a part of one. Thank you, Helene Brown
