I'm a little unnerved to report that this trend has been following me for a while. I've spent most of my extended weekend sleeping. I've been cashed out on the bed or the couch anywhere from 12 to 18 hours a day, for the last couple of days. I might sleep late in the morning, or if I get up at a regular time I find myself exhausted and taking a four hour nap in the late afternoon. I'm reminded of a time about three to four years ago when I was still living in Hoffman Estates... I was sleeping just as much, and it really threw me out of whack. I don't remember what I did to get back on a regular sleep schedule, but I'm going to have to do something about it if I want to be even remotely useful at work this week. It makes me exhausted simply thinking about the fact that this has been ongoing for well over three weeks now. I don't know how chebutykin does it.
shaddragon remarked that I should see a doctor about this, which is something fiskblack said a few months ago when something similar to this was going on. I loathe going to the doctor -- I haven't seen mine in over two years now and I'd like to keep it that way. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to survive this much longer, so I might as well face the inevitable and see if I can't schedule an appointment for sometime next week (this week is going to be far too busy once work resumes). In the interim I think I'll go over to Meijer and pick up a sleep aid (perhaps Melatonin) to see if I can't make myself stay conked out tonight. Uninterrupted sleep might go a long way to fixing this problem.
Today I have set a minimal number of goals for myself: get recycling and trash ready for pickup tomorrow, do some laundry, clean the Expedition out (disgusting on the inside) and give it a wash and wax. I'll consider anything I accomplish beyond that to be frosting.
To all of those who are out celebrating the 4th of July tonight, be sure light a bottle rocket for me!
Somebody told me so
