Sleep can be hard to achieve during the hard times we are currently experiencing.

My brain never shuts up or down.....I sleep maybe 3-4 hours a night

I find it marginally amusing how many Sith wound up here of all places discussing their inability to find rest... No rest for the wicked perhaps?

The irony being I too understand this, it would take far too long to get into. But I've had years upon years of sleep issues. The one time I was terribly honest about it with a medical professional she said "are you serious, you're not messing with me or exaggerating? That's very bad." She then detailed how/why it was troublesome, negative effects, and pushed me to go see a specialist to address it or solve these issues. I did the opposite, took none of the advice except finding a sleep aid which proved effective. It was not the best decision, probably should have listened for sure. But insomnia is terrible, I can agree with that for sure. Sleep seems like a luxury at times.

But yeah, carry on with Jidai affairs as usual, don't mind me. Just passing through and learning your secrets... I mean admiring the place.

Lack of sleep is nothing to sneeze at.  My lack of sleep coupled with my high stress and bad diet recently lead to a hospital stay for A-Fib.  Getting shocked back into rhythm is not fun.

I'll bet, since high stress effects sleep and lack of sleep effects mental ability as well. Not eating or sleeping right is bad, but together oh yeah terrible for your body. Good to hear you pulled through, but certainly no joke. Hopefully things are going a bit more smoothly overall now...

Tell me about it. In the last month I've lost 12lbs from stress.

1) It is wise to know the ways of ones enemies.
2) this is merely 1 of many side tracks threads inevitably take.

Holy shell, dude.

Oh yea, you were gone when it happened.  Short story: Few days before Christmas my heart began beating like a Jackhammer and wouldn't stop.  Wife rushed me to the ER.  Gave me Medication and shocked me once.  It slowed my heart but did not go back to normal rhythm.  Docs were afraid I was going into V-Fib (Heart Attack) so the sent me to a bigger Hospital with a better Cardio Unit.  Its all Hazy for a bit after that first shock.  At the next ER they preformed a Heart Cath and found not only were my arteries actually clear..but wide open.  So...I got a second shock (this is not an experience I wish to repeat).  That one got my heart back in rhythm.  I kind of came to in Recovery, then went to ICU, then my own room.  So about 2 and a half days in the Hospital.  So my heart is out of whack because I don't sleep and get highly stressed out all the time.  Unfortunately I'm a stress/anger eater so no weight  loss from stress for me..I go the opposite way.  Which of course makes things worse.

Damn. I had 3 heart attacks in early 2019. They are not very fun. I have 5 stints that failed in between the second and third attacks. Stress and lack of sleep were the main factors for me as well. My diet isnít that great either though. I feel you, man. I know it can be difficult but try to take care of yourself.

I wish...while still not a good things its a bit better than gorging yourself on food. 
Example:  I get stressed/angry > Orders X-Large Pizza with extra Pepperoni and Bacon > Scarfs the whole thing down in minutes...literally minutes > Because of the speed of how I ate, still hungry > Eat snack food and or soft drink (I'm better about the Sodas now) > Brain finally registers stomach is over full > Now miserable and uncomfortable and am kept awake all night by acid reflux > Lack of Sleep screws with body > Get Angry about it *Repeat*        Of course it goes without saying its my own brain that's the issue.
