Hi and welcome...You have come to the right place, we all have some knowledge about CP even though we are not Doctors. Now, about the falling asleep thing... I take Methadone and sometimes, especially when I haven't been sleeping well, I will "NOD" off while doing everyday things. Now, some might think that's funny, but it's not...it's scary. I also have Sleep Apnea like Whitebeard mentioned...I take Provigil to help combat the sleepiness. I also know that Depression can cause this as well...I really agree with everyone and say that seeing your Dr. is KEY. I'm sure it's nothing serious, but having it checked out is important... That way you can have your Granddaughter over again and have fun...That will be the best medicine ever.
Good Luck and again Welcome to the family...
