Circadian Rhythm Chronotherapy – Experiment Check-in 2

Friday, 9:00 AM

I’m still alive and ticking on the chronotherapy experiment. Still pretty tired. Dizzy. Nauseous. Feverish. Coffee’d. But still going. My friend is still here but he’s dozing in and out. It’s mostly Dexter keeping me company at the moment.

I had some moments of pretty high anxiety and panic but as long as I sit still and focus on the TV, the computer or my iPhone it seems to be OK. Quietly. The word of the moment.

I think I can stay awake until 6:00 PM. We’ll see. My brain is pretty scrambled.
