I hate this.

My sleep cycle and my wakefulness has basically been screwed up for months.

To the point of interfering with my work, and to the point of interfering with my social life, and to the point of interfering with my social play.

Just about the only time I'm not within touching distance of falling asleep, is right before it's time to go to bed for the night. The rest of the time, all day, if I'm not doing something else, I'm on the verge of dozing off.

Last night, I finally finally forced myself to actaully lay down at 11pm and forcibly meditate myself to sleep.

Four and a half hours later, three REM cycles later, I'm wide awake.

If I could be this awake the rest of the day, that would be grand. But in about 6 hours, I know it, I'm going to be 10% zombie again.

I can't even be a typical Seattle coffee addict. All caffine does to me is make me feel weary, which is a real joy when mixed with a constant "I feel sleepy".
