    If I go without sleep for more than a day, I get very psychotic feelings. I know of some people (can't say who) that used meth, and it really messed up their brains. They were going 3-4 days all the time without sleep. Very harmful drug.
    Without enough sleep, I feel sick (nearly to the point of vomiting) and don't want to eat. And any type of stress makes my body feel like jello. I am probably in the minority. As for my dreams, I never remember my dreams. So it could be that I'm experiencing nothing bad as I sleep, and that is why I wake up restful. Or it could be that I'm having nightmares, and that is why I need an entire 8 hours! I am not really sure.

    How has your sleep been this week?

    I've been trying to go to bed earlier so that I can get up earlier. It's only hard because my transit time is so long! Two hours to get somewhere is ridiculous. I began to doze in the middle of a meeting! Not good.
