    I get tired, I become scattered and hyper-active. I guess that seems a little backwards, but it's apparently always been true, since my mom said she knew I needed to go to bed whenever I'd start getting really rambunctious.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I really identify with this ( the trouble is I enjoy it - off into fantasy land when I should be getting some sleep!)

    I like the being 'deprived of sensation' bit too - I wear earplugs and have the room completely dark - just ideas, thoughts and plans to deal with - no irritating visual or aural sensations - I do love the physical ones though - clean sheets, warm duvet - snuggling!
    I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
