Dear 4am, 5am, 6am
We gotta stop meeting this way.
I would rather sleep with you.
My biological clock is seriously screwed. I cannot get to sleep unless I'm mentally exhausted.
Sleeping when I'm physically tired but still mentally active would result in all kinds of nightmares.
All kinds of sleep therapy and sleep-inducing methods do not work on me. If only I could will my mind to be less active.
When it's time to wake up, I could press the snooze button for as long as two hours. At other times, I have no recollection of hearing the alarm at all. I kept going in late for work and either leaving late or using the many extra hours previously to claim time off.
It's fortunate that my direct superior has got the same problem as me. When I finally explained to him, he was so happy to find out that he wasn't the only one who can't sleep and can't wake up as a result.
And I too, am so happy that he has the same problem.
