My sleep patterns have deteriorated. I suspect I know why, but the details are too private to post in an online journal such as this. Suffice to say that it’s rather depressing. I feel like the protagonist of Fight Club. I need a Fight Club right now, something to do. I do have Redemption on Friday nights, which is surprisingly like Fight Club, in a way; a close-knit group of friends who engage in mock combat for no […]

I couldn’t go to sleep until quite late last night, but at least I didn’t sleep a huge amount. My sleep patterns seem to be returning to normal. The new Aerobed may indeed be helping. More on the VR story: Thomas appeared in a rat’s maze of grey cubicles and beige walls. Fortunately, this was an off-the-shelf low-res world; everybody and everything was an abstract shape, designed by a committee sipping bad coffee at some monolithic […]

I seem to have solved my sleep problems last night, at least for the night. I went to bed a little late, after taking some sleeping pills, and put my wheezing Aerobed on top of the cushions, so I’d at least have a comfortable bed for the first hour or so. I also practiced a few Tai Chi forms before going to bed and prayed a bit, which I think calmed me down. I’ll try that again tonight and see if […]

Couldn’t go to sleep until 2 a.m. last night. Slept through both my alarms. Woke up at noon. No idea why. This has been going on for awhile, and I brainstormed it with my parents yesterday. We thought it might be my bed—my normal Aerobed got a slow week and I’ve been sleeping on couch cushions for the past week. But I slept on the (slowly deflating) bed last night, and it didn’t seem […]

Ugh. I simply cannot wake up at a decent hour anymore. It started on Monday; I slept through my alarm and awoke at noon. Of course, my body wouldn’t go to sleep at the regular time, so I ended up tossing and turning until 2 a.m. Lather, rinse, repeat. This morning, I slept through two alarms, despite going to bed at a reasonable hour the night before. I’m hoping that this is the end of it. I stayed […]
