So...I'm running on several hours of sleep deficit for several days. That's pretty rare for me because I can usually function decently on 5 hours a night for a week....or 6 hours forever. I'm averaging below 4 for the week...due to jet lag, time zones, and daylight savings alltogether. Can't get to sleep before 3...have to be awake, functional at 7.
I've been trying to describe to myself how it feels...and those 90's commercials about drugs and eggs come to mind:
This is your brain.
This is your brain on drugs.
This is your brain with ham on toast.
But my many years of online gaming give a better metaphor:
I feel like I've got heavy lag when I try to communicate with my brain.
Odd's I'll get 6+ hours of sleep tonight? >10%
