In 2006 at the age of 40, I had a stroke when I was on a Holiday in the United states. I was admitted at a California hospital. Now, even though I am back at home, I'm still on California hours. That means that I sleep during the daytime, and I'm awake at night. I live in the Netherlands, but I wish there was a way for me to live in California so that I could have a "normal" life again.
