I can function at work now without having to take naps on my lunch break. No more coffee and "NO-DOZ" to get me through the day. I can concentrate on my daily tasks and I feel like my life is becoming normal again. I actually have enough enrgy to exercise at the end of my day. It's changed my life completely.
