It is 5:45 AM as I write this, the harsh glare of my laptop an unwelcome affront to my otherwise dark room.
I need to be at the ambulance depot in about 3 hours - tomorrow (today?) is my medic shift, where I ride along with the paramedics for 12 hours of sirens and speeding. Unfortunately, I've just finished a string of night shifts and my biological clock is set firmly to wake by night, sleep by day. I napped for an hour at midnight, but that's it.
I've touched on this in other posts. I really don't like the idea of pharmacologic sleep, but I suspect that tonight I should have popped a couple Benadryl. I just hate that I may end up doing that for the rest of my life.
