regarding sleep

Hi, I have myotonic dystrophy. I go to sleep quite early. In most cases I shut off my lights at about 8 PM. Most times I fall asleep fairly quickly and sometimes it takes me awhile. I am usually up about 7:30 AM giving me about 12 hours of sleep. I don't usually take naps during the day, occassionally I may fall asleep in front of the TV if I'm relaxed and not out running around but for the most part do not nap during the day. I am not taking any medication for sleep disorders. Is this unusual, how long do many people with forms of MD sleep?

Marlene
