Went to watch son’s robotics competition in loud stadium (with earplugs) and got all hyped up on cortisol.
Then had vast quantities of sugar and caffeine.
Then spent hours semi-comatose and binge-watching Person Of Interest in a dark room by myself.
Then decided not to take medicine that makes me super tired.
Because I wanted to stay up late and bead. And because I feel sad and don’t want to go to sleep.
I haven’t been awake at midnight for a long time.
I have missed these wuiet hours. But they are sad and a little lonely.
