    Great Leslie…the beautiful and talented Leslie Thompson in her element! I suffered from restless leg syndrome for YEARS before I even knew what it was and finally found out after reading something in the newspaper. (Before internet) Tears streamed down my face with the hope of medication that would control this disorder. Being still even luckier, I had insurance that paid for a sleep study that revealed sleep apnea as well. Add those two and that’s a bad combination. I surely knew I was short on the dopamine! I was also pardoned by my father who thought I had simply been lazy because it was difficult for me to get up every morning. Thanks for covering this…it has made a huge difference in my life because this is under control! Blessings, Yvonne
