He wasn’t that popular as you presume…then he went to a “sleep lab” and apparently he has some kind of a sleep disorder…so you are fine, you just have to go to sleep earlier if you know you have to wake up early in the morning. You just need 8 hours of sleep and then you won’t have a problem waking up,More discussions about medical condition
