A by product of insomnia which I suffer sometimes. And when I am in the depths of sleep dep if I have a symptom of any kind I generally think - could this be caused by sleep deprivation? Most of the time the answer is YES. Shortness of Breath - Yes, Weight gain - Yes, Depression - Yes.
These symptoms and many more are what moves me from my natural state of avoidance of all pharmaceuticals to an unnatural for me state of - yes I am willing to take that little white pill on a regular basis.
Of course, not tonight. I am working my job so I am extremely sleepy.
I was thinking about those scheduled maintenance things. You know, when an electronic device allows you to set it up in advance to do regularly scheduled maintenance or updates.
Why can't my body be like that? If I could program regular sleep times and then automatically shut down at that time only to restart eight hours later.
Not to be, though.
One thing that is making me sleepy is I have spent the last four days in a rewrite of my novel: Hungry Ghosts. I am happy to say that it is now ready to go to an editor.
Next task - find an editor.
Meanwhile I leave you with this lively fun song from The Faders titled: No Sleep Tonight
