A very typical night for a person with sleep deprivation will include lying in bed unable to sleep with thoughts on their mind or even just too exhausted to sleep in some cases. The person in the morning hence gets feelings of being unrestored, unrefreshed or even sleepy during the following day or days. Some people are even totally unaware that they have a case of sleep deprivation and just carry it with them in their everyday lives. This is a very serious problem in society at the current time because of the risks involved with untreated sleep deprivation. The deprived person could receive additional stress at their homes or workplaces because of their problem and their potentially lack of commitment or work rate. This will then cause additionally stress and eventually push that person into depression.
