Big Mistake. Big! Huge!

I have been so tired lately, which I don't understand because I've been getting as close to eight hours sleep a night as possible, which is practically forever for me. I usually get by on about six hours sleep perfectly fine, but I find myself barely being able to function at work at the moment with the extra couple of hours.

I got home tonight and was so completely wiped that I lay down for half an hour before I did anything. Two hours later I woke up. This was a big mistake for several reasons.

1) I didn't do any studying tonight - not a huge deal though, because I don't know how productive I would have been anyway;

2) I bet you I have trouble sleeping tonight, despite the fact that I still feel like a walking zombie;

3) That will just mess up my study day tomorrow because I'll feel tired and lethargic all day. I don't mind feeling that way at work, but it pisses me off when I ruin my study days by feeling that way!

I'm fine on 6 hours or so, for sleep - I found that when I had a night of 7 hours, I was actually tireder the next day!

Maybe that's the same for you? That you had too much sleep with the 8 hours?

All I know about sleep patterns is that they are damn delicate. Good luck getting things back to normal!

Are you getting enough nutrition? I've been feeling much more alert during the day and sleeping better at night since I started taking a multivitamin every day.

I feel your pain. [/fellow zombie]

It's possible that you've been getting too much sleep. I notice that I feel heavier, draggier and more lethargic when I get too much.

Hope you get to sleep ok.

Love the subject line!

I hope it all worked out. I'm pretty groggy myself today. Most days, come to think of it.

Hee, I was hoping someone would catch the reference! That's one of my favourite lines from a film. I'm always quoting it.
