What Happens When Your Brain Doesn’t Sleep?

I think my brain is suffering:  Impaired Wit, Cerebral shrinkage, Eating binges, Hallucinations, Risky decisions, Anger, Lost memories, False memories, Head-in-the-clouds, slurred speech are some of the impacts from diminished or non-restorative sleep.

However, I won’t tell you which of those my brain is suffering from.  You’ll have to read my blog posts to figure it out.

I can’t read this chart.  The print is too small so click here for a larger image: What Sleep Deprivation Does to Your Brain.

I wonder if diminished sleep and diminished eyesight are related . . . .

  1. With the way my head has been behaving my sleep has not been restorative and I can see things in this list that are matching me to a tee. I keep thinking, I don’t like the way I am right now. I don’t like this me. (angry, forgetful, wanting to eat more, wanting to spend more money…and just being over all…ugh) I know part of that is the fact that I am going through a crappy period, but for me this is big. I don’t feel like me.

    Time for a nap.
