How Much Sleep is too Much Sleep?
I've had a crazy week this week past with my sleeping and other issues I'm still trying to figure out. First I woke up on Sunday with a lump in my throat I attributed to allergies. By the end of that day, after taking an allergy pill, it was almost taken care of. Monday was uneventful to my remembrance, but for whatever reason I wasn't able to get much sleep on Tuesday.
I didn't go to bed Tuesday, in the wee hours of the morning until after 2am. I just wasn't all that tired. Course, I didn't get home from work until 12:15am so that was a portion of the problem. Actually, I think I'm mixing my days up. I think it was Monday am, (Sunday night) I didn't get to bed until extremely late for me, because I forced myself to go to bed at a more reasonable hour that night. Even then, I was only able to sleep about two hours of the night. I'd have gotten up, but I didn't want to wake other members of my household, so I stayed put.
Tuesday, during my shift, I felt like crap. I attributed it to lack of sleep, which I'm sure was the main culprit. Because I was dragging I was also drinking more pop than usual to stay awake. That meant I wasn't drinking much water. By the end of the night I was either dehydrated or something else was going on and I again felt awful.
I slept great, finally, that night and the next. In fact, I went to bed on Wednesday night at 10:30 pm as I wanted a great night's sleep. Problem was, it was somewhat rainy the next morning and I didn't force myself up. I didn't accomplish much and again went to bed early.
Now it's Friday at 4:45am and I'm back where I was several days ago. Sometimes I'm all over the board with my sleep schedule because I work the midnight shift periodically. But not this week. This week, I've not a clue what's up.
I decided to get up for a bit. Partially because I had a bit of a headache and it wasn't going away while lying down, and partially because I remembered after going to bed that I had some payroll to take care of before we worked this morning.
(Since I've not written here in a while, I'm clueless on the different font sizes along with being able to put: h1, h2 etc. Currently, while writing this, everything is bolded. I'll see how it turns out after publishing this).
