Sleep-deprived Suen's humble dream

Central Station | 25 Nov 2021

All Michael Suen Ming-yeung, the former secretary for education, wants these days is a good night's sleep.

But it's hard to come by, Suen says in a newspaper column.

He notes that he has symptoms of sleep apnea, in which his breathing stops when he sleeps. As the oxygen level in his blood declines when he can't breathe, his body struggles for air and wakes him up. Suen has also been diagnosed with hypersomnia, a condition in which he always feels sleepy and tired.

Suen now wears a continuous positive airway pressure machine to sleep and it's making him rest better. But, he adds, he is still far from his humble dream of having a good night's sleep and waking up to a bright new day.
