What happens to you when you never reach an REM sleep?

Thursday, March 20, 2008

So, every night for 8 months now I am awoken at midnight, 2 am, 4 am by my son for milk. I am also awoken by my daughter once every night between 3 and 5 am for a nightmare. Every night she has one. And, because I am so tired I crash every night around 9 pm so when I am awoken in the AM I have difficulty falling back asleep.
Anyway, I have started to notice the fallout.
I forget everything. I have to come back to the house at least 3 times and then I still forget things.
I can't speak correctly. I had to read some article aloud to some folks and I kept saying
philosophical as fill au sophy instead of fill e sof i cal. I took philosophy classes in college and yes, I do know how to say philosophical.
I printed 36 pieces upside down without noticing.
I have a very short temper.
I feel like shit.
My husband suggested we go to Amsterdam and I said well, I really want to go to the Netherlands. He just looked at me. I went to Kindergarten in Holland so I do know this.
When people talk to me I can't really understand them and have to ask them to repeat what they are saying. We were eating out and the waitress kept asking me if I was still eating and I kept saying yes thinking she was asking me if I was done.
I feel like shit.
I tell the same stories over and over again.
I have difficulty parsing dreams from reality. Seriously!

So, we are going to sleep train. I am just so not looking forward to it.

    You need to take you son to a sleep clinic and teach him to sleep through the night. Seriously. I did, it changed my life. They can learn, even if they are breastfed. I couldn't even trust myself to drive anymore I was so wrecked from sleep deprivation.
