Week 37 – Wide Awake

It’s easy to blame mistakes on a lack of sleep. But when you’re swimming in the haze of fatigue, it’s no wonder things go wrong.
Confused names, depth perception lost, words muddled up.
And there’s no quick recharge for sleep. A coffee or energy drink only goes so far.
The messed up thing is, you can either lose or gain weight with sleep deprivation. How unfair is that? 50/50 chance of gaining weight while you’re losing your mind. Awesome.
The hallucinations are the worst. I don’t know whether I’ve been day dreaming or whether something has actually happened. Did so-and-so really say such-and-such? I don’t know!
So the only cure is sleep, but there’s no such thing as catching up on sleep. You can’t get back the hours of waking and convert them into dream time. They’re gone. Lost in the folds of time and yesterday.
So here I am. Awake. And making mstiakes.

  1. I put on two kilos up there in 10 days. Poor you being there for three weeks! I’m still not caught up on sleep, either.

  2. … Although reading other posts this is probably not about the social games. *quietly exits*

    1. Hahah it’s a mix of life and stories 🙂 There is one true story well back in the first few weeks. An horrific visit to the dentist.

  3. Aha! I see what you did there! Clever.
