Stressed & Giddy

SO I read a really interesting website, that quoted a scientific study that stated ~ "On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behaviour becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact."

That's more than the 21 day that I've been led to believe and it's certainly more than the 19 days that I've been coming here to write.

Although, this does feel like a habit.

I've been awake since 4:30 this morning. After only a four and a half hour sleep, if that.

I'm exhausted. Somehow this feels like deja vu.

I came home from work today with a literal agonizing pain in my neck which is making me feel miserable. I've avoided my office. I've avoided looming deadlines because all I wanted to do was sleep. Which I haven't done yet. And now it's almost midnight and I'm over tired and extremely giddy and still avoiding my writing deadlines. But I'm here. Writing. Stressed and giddy. Such an entertaining combination, at least in my world. I've spent many a 12 hour night shift stressed and giddy. Or heck, even a day shift. Some of my best tear provoking laughs have occurred with some really great people that I've worked with over the years. Health Care brings out an interesting sense of humour. But Night shift is an entirely different beast, one that I am not a fan of. Although middle of the night humour may be some of the best. But the thought of a 12 hour night shift makes me a bit nauseated. Or maybe the nausea is the mere fact that I've been awake for nearly 24 hours.

I need to take better care of myself.

Starting now.

Nighty night
