This is a resurrected post I made years ago, which was probably my first indication that I wasn't sleeping well. At the time I had no idea why I wasn't sleeping well. The sleep regimen below ended up being a futile effort but I guess my doctor back then didn't know about/think about sleep apnea and sending me for a sleep study.
Current Music: Not Yet
Current Mood: Too early...
So, I had issues with having bad sleep, where I'd wake up after 9 hours and still be tired.
My doctor helped me fix that by getting on a 7H/night sleep regimen, which forced my body to actually sleep when I was in bed.
Overall, it's worked fine, except that when I get behind on sleep, I'm now more or less unable to sleep more than 7H/night (which ended up being the case for the last 2 nights even though I was completely exhausted and even took an ambian to hopefully help, except that it didn't).
I'm kind of ticked that I first woke up around 05:30 and got up less than an hour later considering how tired I was yesterday (and that's an understatement), as I had gone to bed around 11:15, but I'll see how today pans out...
Oh, I'm secondary oncall this week, so any page my oncall buddy doesn't get will wake me up (yeepee), but in better news I finally got my old trusty thinkpad back from IBM with a brand new plastic shell to replace the half cracked one that I used to have.
