lienne: A fountain pen nib, lying on paper. (Default)
This post may not be terribly coherent and I'm about to tell you why -

New brain drugs (well, not really brain drugs, more drug drugs) supposed to help deal with my perpetual state of debilitating exhaustion.

Day 1: Noticeable massive boost in general energy levels, but cognitive energy still low. Huge trouble getting to sleep.

Day 2: Surprisingly okay despite being so low on sleep; nevertheless, tried skipping my light to see if it would help me get to sleep on time. It mostly didn't.

Day 3 (today): Groggy as fuck. Decided not to skip light. Groggy as fuck anyway, but I think I'm slowly coming out of it. As before, body energy is outpacing brain energy, but this time there's much less of either. I anticipate a day of not doing much. I will try my very best to go to bed very early. I wish people would not watch Netflix loudly in the living room while I'm trying to sleep.

Mostly I'm just hoping that today is a break in the pattern as opposed to a new, shittier stage of it. Maybe if I stay tired all day I'll actually be able to get to sleep at 10...
