It's not that I can't sleep. Once 3:00 a.m. rolls around, I can sleep like Rip Van Winkle. But the universe will not support my 3:00-10:00 sleeping habit. It wants 11:00-6:00, my own feelings be damned.
So last night, I tried 5mg of melatonin. I've tried 1mg doses before with no discernible effect, so I figured, being a largish guy I should probably just go ahead to the largest dose.
Well, it didn't particularly help me get to sleep.
It did, however, make it even harder than it always is to wake up. -.-
So after sleeping (sorta) for 10 hours, I've finally managed to stagger downstairs. I still need breakfast, but that requires standing and I'm not keen on the idea. Writing journal entries is much easier, all that has to move are my fingers and the one or two working synapses still left. Good thing I have some sick time available.
Note to myself: no more 5mg doses of melatonin. -.-
