We know that a good night's sleep means we wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. We don't think much of the repercussions of missing a couple of hours of sleep, thinking we can make it up the next day-it's not a matter of life and death for most of us.

If someone has a medical condition that prevents them from working, they may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
