My computer is being kind of weird and won't let me download a pic on blogger right now. I'll have to wait until I get to work and maybe put something up.
Now that I'm back to work and getting up early, I'm also back to not sleeping enough. It's been a long time since I've had a week off, and the main thing I noticed was how different I am when I'm not sleep-deprived.
I'm sure I've written about this a hundred times before, but I'm just going to do it again. I have always had a hard time falling asleep. I'll be exhausted and the minute I lie down, my brain perks right up and it could be a few hours before it finally calms down again. A woman who works in my office likes to tell me that it's a sign of ADD. And I like to say, Um, duh. Once I finally fall asleep, I can sleep through earthquakes(and have). So, when I worked in bars and restaurants and didn't have to wake-up at the ungodly hour of 6:30, I was fine. Now, though? Now, I'm lucky if I get four hours of sleep a night.
It's been interesting to see the difference in myself last week when I got sleep and this week when I haven't had much. All my other ADD symptoms - the restlessness, the non existent attention span and spazzing seem to be caused by sleep-deprivation. I guess the real question then becomes; which came first, the sleep-deprivation or the ADD.
