My sleep schedule has been really jacked up for the past few weeks.
I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night (12:33 or 2:33 to be precise) and not being able to go back to sleep until around 5 or 6, if at all. It doesn’t bother me all that much, but it is starting to wear on me physically. I noticed I got pretty out of breath just wrestling with Max last night and I am craving huge amounts of sugar and carbs, neither of which is good for me.
There is nothing personal going on here though, nothing worth frustration or annoyance.
I am exhausted, but this is just a thing that is happening. No one is doing this to me. I am not worried or anxious about anything. I do not think this is indicative of some deeper issue. I go through these phases of weird sleep schedules, this is one of them.
It’s not even a bad thing unless I get myself in opposition to it.
I won’t suffer from this unless I start thinking it needs to be different. As it is, it has been a great way to get the blog written and published each night. I’ve done a lot of work on the website. I’ve gotten a lot of reading out done. I even got to play Skyrim for an hour or two one night.
My body will hit a point of exhaustion where it corrects itself.
It’s already happening. I have a dull headache, my stomach hurts. I keep twisting my ankle. I don’t need sleep aids or alcohol to fix this, it will work itself out eventually. Until then, I’ll embrace it and make the most of it. Maybe I’ll start a secret fighting group that you aren’t supposed to talk about. We’ll eventually blow up some buildings.
I’ve got the time now…
Thanks for reading, enjoy your Saturday.
