I Hate Jetlag

Every time I think I’ve got it beat, it comes back and kicks me in the ass. Several trips back, I was unable to sleep the first night I arrived in Europe. The next trip, I slept like a rock that first night, and thought, “heh, that wasn’t bad.” And then proceeded to be unable to sleep the second night.

This time, I made it all the way to night three before experiencing a complete and total sleep breakdown. I lay awake all night last night, and am being run around like a crazy person today. This does not bode well for family harmony.

Things otherwise have been lovely so far. Apologies for having a brain incapable of substance today; I’ll hope for both consciousness enough and time to post properly soon…

  1. Jetlag is an unpredictable beast, or at least it has been for me. Thought I had it beat first night in Taiwan, but then started waking progressively earlier (as in 4 am) each day.

    Hope you have a great trip.

  2. Jetlag shouldn’t be an issue in Italy.

    Prosecco to make you sleep, Espresso to keep you awake. There’s nothing wrong with chemically induced sleep patterns – especially when the chemicals are alcohol and caffeine.

  3. Oh, but Jonathan. After the age of (mumble, mumble), alcohol no longer promotes sleep, but instead prevents it. Alas, chemical intervention only worsens the situation…
