Journal Chacham's Journal: Sleep 4

Went to sleep late one night. I keep wanting to go to sleep early, but that very thought seems to make me go to sleep late the next night as well.

Am I the only one with such a problem?

    My sleep schedule is totally borked. It's such a sensitive topic that I don't even usually talk about it.

  • I had that problem...I hate GOING to sleep...and I HATE waking's a catch 22...
    What I used to do when I was not married was watch t.v. or read a book until I fell asleep. Reading was always the easiest. Then I got married last March, and I sleep like a baby every night around 11pm, because that's when the wife goes to bed, and I'm "required" to go to sleep when she does.
    Now, she is in Brasil visiting her family and I have fallen victim to my old ways. Haven't fallen asleep until 2am each morning, and 7am when Brasil was playing Germany in the final match of the World Cup.
    But life is grand and the wife is coming home next week so sleep will return to a normal, scheduled event and my body will recuperate. The worst part of it all is that my body was accustomed to waking up at 7am...even on those days that sleep did not come until 2am. Odd, the human body is...odd...
