Circadian Rhythm Chronotherapy – Experiment Check-in 3

Friday, 12:45 PM

Continuing on the chronotherapy experiment. Feeling much better. Almost felt like I was going to pass out a few times around 10 AM but I seem to have picked up a second, or third, or sixty-fourth wind or something.

The panic is gone and the anxiety has diminished. My friend is awake again after he napped off and on for 2.5 hours. He’s allowed to nap, I’m not.

I think I’ll be able to make it to 6:00 PM but I wish it would hurry up and get here already. This has been the longest day, ever.

Thursday – stay awake all day and night

Friday – stay awake all day

Friday – 5:00 AM – 7:00 AM – light therapy

Friday – 6:00 PM – 1:00 AM – sleep

Saturday – 5:00 AM – 7:00 AM – light therapy

Saturday – 8:00 PM – 3:00 AM – sleep

Friday, 2:30 AM

Readings:

Depression 3

Anxiety 3

Energy 5

All and all much better. I hope that lasts until I can get some sleep. And well, after that. But I suspect the getting up at 1:00 AM isn’t going to be extremely fun.
