The Sleep Deprivation Me: I worked night shift for a couple of years It almost killed me. I would get 4 hours sleep each day, then sleep all weekend. Too much coffee. A waking madness. And then when the end of week came, I would head off into hibernation, no one would hear from me for a day. Distorts time, kills appetite, low energy. Don’t ever get a night job peoples.
Sleeping Glut: when I get down, I don’t want to deal with anyone or anything. It’s off to bed I go. 12 hour sleeps, and more, I don’t care. Just so long as I get away. Sometimes the dreams are psychadelic, an alternate fantasy universe, other times it’s a long featureless escape; letting the hours go by. Makes you fat.
Normal Sleep: not since 7 have I had normal sleeping patterns. Things change all the time. It makes work/study a hellish thing, but the variation is something I wouldn’t trade off. It’s fun to snooze in an important team-meeting, or when a tight deadline is coming up. It’s fun being manic when everyone else is dull.
I don’t think I’m crazy, just sleep crazy.
