I am in no way proud of the fact that I was suffering (I’m recovering now…working on it every day) from massive sleep deprivation.
No, not tired. But actual full on sleep deprivation. As in, I didn’t sleep for more than 4 hours. And when I did, it was not good quality sleep.
With the depression, anxiety and general work, it was just part of the toxic mix I was in and I couldn’t get out of the vicious cycle. With no sleep came dangerous side effects, loss of memory, general confusion, serious emotional highs and lows and a constant feeling of “I’m about to lose it” day in and day out.
THIS IS NO WAY TO LIVE.
Most of you think “JUST GO TO BED ALREADY” but oddly enough, despite being desperate for sleep, I was caught in the riptide and being taken out further and further away from shore.
I make fun of myself in the video, but sleep deprivation it is a serious issue.
