Both of us expressed our concerns about her sleep patterns and then the doctor gave her that questionnaire about how likely you are to nod-off in certain circumstances. She and I had a difference of opinion on how likely certain events were. I was reasonably certain her 'score' should have been much higher - but I got 'saved' from an argument by the nurse for my appointment.
However, I'm beginning to wonder just how useful those questions really are. Is it possible that some of us lie to ourselves about needing help getting proper sleep? Are we real honest when we answer the questionnaire?
