Sleep: the fatigue frontier. These are the siestas of the sleepspace Enterprise. Its five-hour mission: to explore strange new dreams. To regain new life and new constitutions. To boldly nap where no man has dozed before!
I’ve been sleeping … a variety of different hours. I work in state government and have been covering a midnight - 8am shift on the COVID-19 hotline fielding calls from doctors and nurses who want to order diagnostic tests. Even in the wee hours the hospitals are flooded with new patients.
@melonscoop Fed employee here. I’m essential employee. Not much sleep, days/nights all just a blur. I’m not sleeping much at all, just working. At least my 74 mi. commute each day is way quicker. I own the road along with the few others who have to work and we are making good time to say the least. Speed limits are a thing of the past!
So far my routine hasn’t changed too much, so pretty much a wash for the total. I tend to sleep less this time of year. Since it’s light out and not so cold I want to get out and do stuff around the house earlier.
Mostly better. I work at home anyway, but with my wife home as well, we don’t have to be up at a specific time. Suddenly it’s a lot easier to get up in the morning, even though it’s about the same time we would have anyway.
(And the last few nights have been easier thanks to a bedtime Vicodin. Turns out a nosebleed can send you to the ER if your INR is high enough. So now I’ve got an incredibly uncomfortable tube up my nose. It comes out tomorrow, thankfully, and in the meantime I can cosplay as Gurney Halleck.)
