>Sleep Experiment

>I’ve been having some problems with either not sleeping or not staying awake. So I decided to take a week for an experiment. It’s day four. I quit all my meds except Excedrin and asthma inhaler. No knock-you-out pills. I actually am feeling much better. More alert. The sleep schedule is interesting, too. The first day or so, I slept a few hours here and there. Night before last I went to bed at 5pm and got up at 1:30 am. Crashed at 8pm last night, and woke up at 3:45 this morning. It’s 5:30 now. I’m up, dressed, had my coffee. Feeling good. I did get a pain flare yesterday afternoon, but was better after my friend Tess felt well enough to come over for some Big Kahuna. We always get hysterical playing that, because it makes up it’s own words, which are sometimes pretty funny, and most often nonsensical. But they get us points and laughter. I guess laughter really is the best medicine. I’m feeling some pain this morning, so I will take some Excedrin, but overall, I think this experiment is working pretty well. I even cooked yesterday.
