My Sleep Journey
I am not just a co-founder and lead provider at MelioREM Sleep Clinic, I am also a sleep medicine patient. This is my personal sleep journey – i.e., how I turned my pain into my passion.
I always thought I was a good sleeper. But when I entered my medical residency training program, I was stricken with what seemed like chronic insomnia. I couldn’t easily fall asleep – and I never felt rested.
