in reply to Sleeping Patterns

Severe sleep depravation has definite links to illness and memory loss although there are documented exceptions.

Strange but I seem to be the opposite of other people in this thread, I used to need less sleep that I do now, or at least I used to get by without feeling too tired. I have a sneaking feeling that this has something to do with parenthood rather than ageing.

Over here in the UK you can now get a brand of coffee called 'rocket fuel' which has added caffiene, on some mornings it's a must at the moment.

    Hi, where can I find this Rocket Fuel? Sounds good. Feed the caffeine junkie!

    It's 2:30 am now - where I am. I'm not sure what day it is because I've messed up my sleep pattern by working an 18 hour shift, coming home and sleeping until evening. I seem to do this once or twice a week, meaning that even though I work 3 day weeks, I spend a lot more time at work that anyone else.

    They're doing a National Census over here in the UK at the mo' and I think I might need to lie where it asks how many hours I work a week!

    Anyway, back to the main question - I get more work done when there are less distractions, i.e. phones ringing, people asking me questions all the time. This tends to be early mornings and nights. Hence my messed up sleeping pattern.

    Anyway, I've been awake a few hours now - going to catch a couple of sleep cycles now to beat the morning traffic into work.

    P.S. I'm serious, where can I find this Rocket Fuel!!?
