Did you know that the Challenger Disaster, the Chernobyl meltdown and the Exxon Valdez oil spill were all linked with workers who were sleep deprived? OK, we'll accept that most of us aren't astronauts or nuclear scientists - however, many of us will have jobs that require us to be alert in order to remain safe. Even if we don't, when we drive to work tired, we are running a high risk of hurting ourselves or others.
Insomnia needs to be taken more seriously - it isn't just a mild inconvenience. For long-term sufferers it can be extremely debilitating and even dangerous. We take insomnia and all sleep disorders very seriously; yet we don't want this website to be all doom and gloom.
We want to bring a somewhat light hearted, fun atmosphere to a serious and often depressing subject - but we can't achieve this without your help.
