The use of white noise in noise reduction has been a success.
Now comes the point in which the novelty of the experiment wears off, and the absolute sickness and anger and revolt of the everpresent BRAIN FOG drives every part of me into fuming anger at the world, and whatever’s wrong with my stupid biology, and with society for not taking sleep science seriously and LETTING PEOPLE SLEEP. I would GLADLY lose a leg in exchange for decent energy. It is hell not being able to think.
My homeostatic sleepiness is doing me a solid and becoming borederline unstoppable with fatigue at around 2200, which is perfect and what is wanted. BUT my circadian is still much later, so even though I have my planned activities which are supposed to be sleep inducing (like typing or supermemo reps) I’m so racked with fatigue I can barely get myself to stand up and open the laptop, even though when I do try to sleep it doesn’t work!
Funnily enough, when I was too angry to stay in bed and went to do something, I managed to restrain myself from checking email or using the internet, but stayed up organising my Obsidian Wiki (it was really fun).
I think the excitement of watching netflix shows in bed is contributing. I’ll move closer to Woz’s ideals and start only listening to podcasts in my bed with my bluetooth sleep mask in darkness, no more netflix.
And I’ll try not to even get into bed until at least 2300. If I want to watch netflix I’ll do it on the other side of my brothers bed, and if I want to type or do reps I’ll use the computer desk.
My back has been aching for weeks and I think the culprit is lying over to one side while watching netflix. So will try to lie on back.
Am considering doing morning supermemo reps in the garden for the sunlight. Perhaps the 15 minutes during excercise isn’t enough.
