Everyone apparently needs it, but so few seem to be good at it. I, happen to be the foremost knowledgeable human on the surviving on poor sleep. Want to know how to do it?
You don't need sleep.
Sleep is, a lie the world has taught us we deserve. It is something that society has used as a marketing tool. If we need sleep, we need mattresses, PJs, pillows, blankets, bed side tables, bed frames, etc etc etc.
Sleep is a complete trick. All sleep brings is a whole other world that you have to worry about. The dream world is all nonsense. Even more than my regular life. Which I think we can all admit is complete jabberwocky. So this sleep universe is all night terrors and stress dreams, I get enough of that in the day time. Why would I go to sleep just to experience more of it and be unable to control it? At least when I am away I can eat my feelings. Sleep is a waste.
This is what I will tell myself so that the fact that I haven't slept in months is less painful.
On the plus side, Pinterest has given me a list of plants and essential oils I can try to sleep better. Am I one to believe in that stuff? No not usually. Am I at the point where I will try just about anything short of heroin? Yes I just might be.
