Answers to this week’s questions over at f.riday.com
1. What keeps you up at night?
Sometimes it’s pain, sometimes restless legs and sometimes it’s Crohn’s Disease symptoms but mostly I have no idea! I just can’t fall into sleep, or can’t stay asleep and keep waking up every hour or two from light, poor sleep. Insomnia sucks.
2. How well do you operate on insufficient sleep?
Not very well. It feels like everything is difficult because I’m exhausted already when I wake up. Even every little thing takes a lot out of me. Luckily (I guess – I don’t know how I could work even part-time) I don’t work so I can do things at my own space and I make do.
3. Under what conditions do you get your best sleep?
These days it’s either when I’ve over worked myself during the day, or when I’ve been awake for 32+ hours in one run. Then I get the kind of normal, good sleep I used to have before all these illnesses.
4. What unusual places have you slept in?
Hospital, a tent while camping in a camping area, and in a train sleeping car when I was a little kid and we went to a holiday in Moscow back in early 1980s. Sleeping in the sleep car was exciting! So not unusual places at all.
5. What’s a good song about dreams or dreaming?
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This by Eurythmics and Enter Sandman by Metallica are the ones that come to mind…. donno how good they are about specifically dreaming, but I do like both songs a lot!
