Circadian Rhythm Chronotherapy – Experiment Check-in 8

Saturday, 7:15 PM

More on the chronotherapy experiment…

I’m getting ready for the second 7-hour stretch of sleep. Honestly, I’m not sure whether I’m awake or not at this point. So little sleep over so many days. This has been the longest month, um, week, um I mean, three days ever. Want to make time stand still? Try not sleeping.

The day has been so up and down in energy and mood fluctuations that I feel like my molecules are spinning apart a little. Perhaps I will become see-through.

This sucks, but everything is fine.
