So it's easy to feel like crap after a "good sleep" - no matter how good, one night is not even close to enough to let us feel good. But kick enough glutamate and whatever else is needed into our brains and we do feel good, or we think we do -Sometimes I feel horrible when I have slept and great when I have had very little - and vice versa.
whatever good means to us now that it's been so long since we've been truly rested that our perception of feeling good is distorted.
Or am I wrong? Am I perhaps actually sleeping well and I just feel like crap all the time because of my meds, or because I don't have the right attitude, or because the moon has a crack in it?
I have thought that, too. Maybe we never feel normal after we reach a certain point of sleep deprivation that cannot be corrected for long enough of normal sleep.
That moon might have a crack, though. I sometimes feel as if I know less now than I did when I knew nothing.
