LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana (KPLC) -- For one in three working Americans, a good night's sleep is truly a dream and the sleep debt they are building up is dangerously unhealthy.
It has been three years since Billy Bertrand decided it was time to meet with the sleep man himself, Dr. Jana Kaimal, with Sleep Disorder Center of Louisiana in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
"Trouble sleeping, keeping people awake in the house," he said.
Bertrand got to know his couch pretty well in those days, removing himself from the bedroom because the impact his sleep problems were having on his wife and kids.
"I was actually asleep, but thinking I was awake and I could hear everything going around me," he said.
