I'm in my first month of med school and I was recently diagnosed with DSPS. My school has required attendance; I haven't missed a class yet, but I immediately fall asleep in lecture after downing 4 shots of espresso. I only wake up once lecture is over at lunch. I'm losing 4-5 hours of study time a day b/c I have to be in lecture, and I'm drowning. I don't have a science background so I'm already starting behind my peers and tbh, I can't believe I actually passed my first exam. I'd love to see how I would do with a regular sleep schedule. My sleep med physician wrote me a letter explaining the condition and has started me on some meds and light box therapy, but said that it could take a few months to get things on track. She recommended asking for accommodations to watch the lecture videos from home temporarily, which are recorded already for the class regardless. She stated that I could request it under ADA regulations, but I don't want to be adversarial. @Goro or any other Adcoms have an idea as to whether / how to approach the subject with Admin, or any advice?
