She has been late to work on several occasions recently, which resulted in a missed opportunity for a pay raise. She goes to bed at 10pm every night but often lies awake in her dark room unable to sleep until 2am. She reports feeling more refreshed on the weekends when she can sleep until 10am. She drinks 2-3 cups of coffee most mornings, but she often still wishes to nap and struggles to keep herself awake sometimes.
