Less exercise than usual?  Result of heightened stress?  Constant carb-coma?

I had to reread this a couple of times, but that's not a shot count. Subby might be advised to get a handle on the situation.

Back when we had visitors, if I had front desk duty, I would fall asleep easily because I sat in a chair for most of the time.  If I was installing an exhibit or working outside or posting flyers or doing tours etc etc etc, I easily stayed awake because I walked everywhere and walked long distances.  Instead of doing nothing.

Don't you mean "that separates breakfast from lunchtime?"

If you feel tired all the time when you are not working, you may be struggling with low-key depression and use work as a distraction and an excuse for the cortisol that is drowning your brain.

Alternatively, you have attached entirely too much of your identify to work, and haven't adequately diversified yourself to keep your mind busy when you don't have work occupying it.

Figure out which it is.

If it's the former, maybe try a therapist sometime in the future.

If it's the latter, work on that.

Seriously. Between Depression Sleep, Second Sleep, SSRI Sleep, and Boredom Sleep - it's a constant struggle to do anything but feel fatigued.

It's definitely the former. I'll be utilizing my wife's employer's mental health services before long.

Don't waste quality drinking time with Jameson, spend some real money and buy some Macallan. Sure, you may well end up spending at least $300 on a bottle, but it will be well worth it (unless all you want to do is get mind-splittingly drunk as cheaply as possible, in which case go buy a case or two of Natty Light or Keystone Light and steel yourself for the horrible hangover in the morning).

I've slipped into my natural state of being a complete night owl.   3 to 5 in the morning is when I get sleepy.   Unfortunately I also wake up earlyish, too.   So I get very sleepy in the afternoon.

My husband has solved this problem for him. Whiskey and beer.   Me, I have eaten far too many cherry turnovers.   Way, way too many cherry turnovers.

I noticed I am consuming enough cannabis each day to put a herd of elephants to sleep.

I could do a root canal on myself and not even feel it.

I'm so stoned I even figured out the plot to "The Big Sleep" which doesn't have one.

I'm eating a lot of candy too.  I had 3 pounds delivered today. Of candy. Root beer barrels and fruity thingys.

I'm so stoned music even sounds good, and I feel hope for humanity.  One of those wears off when it rains.

I'm so stoned you probably don't even know it.  I want a hamburger, a hotdog and a milkshake. You'll get nothing and like it.

it's making me sleepy because everyone has the same opinion as the news.

Natty Daddy is the way to go. A 15 pack @8%ABV for $8.80 at Dollar General.

Yeah she & her fellow Floridians only drink "Natty Beer"........that's why we have this Corona Virus because of all Mexicans only drink Corona!!!


I'm still laughing at that one!!! lol

can't complain(but I am), because my job was deemed essential, nothing has changed for me, but I would like a little time at home. I'm exhausted.

/However, when this is over I am going to miss the lack of traffic I have gotten used to.

Madman drummers bummers: Don't you mean "that separates breakfast from lunchtime?"


No, the bottle of Scotch is for between breakfast and lunch, it goes better with the bacon.  A bottle of Jameson is a good palate cleanser for dinner.

I'm not sure I can afford 14 bottles a week at $300.00 each.

Years of working from home has steeled me into an iron clad fortress of sleeping whenever I want, dealing with reality when I have to.In between Chardonnay and online golf.  *smugness ensures*

Our rulers need us to be able to jump back into our cubicles so we can toil for them efficiently when they decide it's time to return. Do not nap or get used to a natural lifestyle with plenty of rest and downtime. It's simply unnatural and counterproductive to their desires.

God why is the answer to all health issues always

'Do some exercise, eat healthily'.

If I could be bothered doing that I wouldn't have any issues.

These so called experts are not helping people. We want solutions, not anything that involves any actual effort.

This.  I'm working tons of overtime because of my essential-ness. I get that people are struggling financially because they're not working. But I have no sympathy for their boredom. I have to do a 12 hour day today starting in a couple hours. It will put me over 60 hours this week. I want a gottdam day off.

Nope, you obviously need a very expensive pill.

As long as it doesn't contain vegetables and isn't too heavy I'm fine with that.

Yeah, nope. I'm a teacher. I drink Jameson. You think I'm wasting my time on it? Feel free to vote for a tax increase the next time it's on the ballot where you live.
