aibo, sleepy, cute

brief update

Saturday involved otterylexa, rowan_leigh and Pourquoi Pas Moi?
Sunday involved meeping, gerwinium and Hello Kitty Roller Rescue.
I do, btw, recommend spending time with all of those people, watching that film, and playing that game :) HKRR is aimed at kids, but like Pokemon Channel, mad adult fans can enjoy the surreality at a level kids Just Wouldn't Get.

Today involved work and the return of wuzzie, but he is an ill, broken wuzzie, with a snotty nose, who can no longer say "Meep" but instead "Meeb". Eeep!

yet another sleep disorder to add to my collection

Gah. I have a really weird problem at the moment: I can't stay asleep.

Been going to bed & sleeping for, say, 2-3 hours, then waking up for 10 minutes, then falling asleep again and sleeping for 1-2 hours, then waking up for 15 minutes, then falling asleep again and sleeping for an hour, then waking up for half an hour... The amount of time I spend asleep each time gets shorter and shorter as the night goes on, and the periods of "awakeness" (if you can call it that when you're utterly exhausted & brain dead) get longer and longer.

Some of the time I'm waking up for an actual reason, like external noise or bad dreams, but most of the time there's no reason at all. And it's starting to get on my nerves. I'm tired all the time, as I'm spending 12 hours in bed and getting about 7 hours actual sleep, and I'm wondering how long it's going to go on for. It started on Thursday after the hospital appointment. Assuming it's stress, is it going to go on for the next couple of weeks until I have the operation? Argh!

I'm thinking about going to see a GP about it, except I have no idea what they can do, considering that I have tried just about every sleeping pill in existence and none of them ever worked. Of course, it's possible that something invented in the past few years might work, but...
