A patient is asking a doctor about sleep. Here is their conversation.


Patient: How long do we need to sleep for every day? Do we need to sleep for about eight hours every day?

Doctor: It depends on the kind of sleep you get. If you get a "sound sleep" or "deep sleep" than six hours can also be enough.

Patient: How long should we sleep for if we are sleeping in the noon rather than night?

Doctor: It doesn't matter how long you sleep for in the day time. You still feel dizzy at night.

Please check my sentences.

It is true I have experienced it. It just doesn't matter how long you sleep in the afternoon you never feel refreshed.
