Understanding a Definition

3:30. 4:00. 5:30. 4:00.

Q: What are these numbers?

A: My wake-up times over the last four days.

Important information: my normal wake up time is 8:30.

Please note: no naps.

This, as I understand it, is the effect of jet lag. “Jet lag” obviously means sleep deprivation. I thought jet lag meant you arrived in a foreign country and your body thought it was still on the time of your own country which made you want to go to sleep really badly but you stayed awake so you could go sightseeing. I had no idea it meant you never, ever were going to get a normal night’s sleep again.

here’s to creative synthesis . . .

    Your blog has a FB page! I am so impressed. And I thank you so much for sharing my words. I hope you can gain some rest – I never understood insomnia before this trip.
