Dark Circles & Double GAD1

Dark Eye Circles, GAD1, genetc testing, Genomix Testing

Dark circles. My whole life. Concealer is my best friend.

I never really thought it was sleep related. I'm a 7-8hrs every night in bed kinda girl. I thought I was getting good sleep.

Genetic testing revealed in +/+ GAD1. (double GAD) Notoriously bad sleepers. Surely not me, right?!

I asked my husband, "Oh yeah. You twitch, flop, & wake up constantly. You wake ME up all the time!"

He asked, "And you don't ever dream do you? And you have to meditate to fall asleep, right?"

Reluctantly I agreed to supplement for my double GAD. I started falling asleep quickly. No meditation necessary. No waking up 4-5x a night. I started waking up refreshed. Even dreaming...all within a week... A WEEK!

I decided not to take any supplements to Louisiana for 4 nights to see if it made a difference. (I was hoping the supplements were just placebo because I don't like swallowing pills.)

Y'all, I've felt like a sleep-deprived zombie & these dark circles back it up. This girl will forever be supplementing for this double GAD to get restful, dream-filled sleep all night long.
