I didn’t nap during the day. At 8pm I took some Nyquil (but not the dope-you-up nighttime kind) and then a bit before 10 I took a melatonin. 20 or 30 minutes later I was feeling dozy, brushed my teeth and went to bed. It was lovely. I drifted off to deep, restful sleep comfortably and quickly.
…And then woke up two hours later bright eyed and bushy tailed.
At least my symptoms are down to a slightly sore, scratchy throat and the occasional "productive" cough (which is about the only productivity I’ve been able to manage for the last three and a half days). My sinuses are back to normal, not even allergies bothering me.
Only fly in the ointment: wide awake at a quarter to 1am. Fortunately, I’m not alone in the nightowl world. Alongside re-reading old posts in this weblog from two years ago, I had a great chat with my friend Simon, who I’m hoping to get to spend more time hanging out with if he moves out to this part of the world.
Now it’s 2:15am and I’m hungry. I guess the appetite is reminding me that it’s well too.
