Hit my wall today

19 Dec

Jet lag.  The last few days I’ve actually been doing okay.  Andrew and I are sleeping at normal CA times but I still don’t feel completely adjusted.  Today at school, I hit my wall.  I was so tired.  I actually almost cried in front of one my classes I was so tired.  (That feels very vulnerable to me even to say).

Anyway, even though I made myself go back to sleep, I have woken up wide awake at 3:00am the last two nights and having the most INTENSE dreams.  I don’t ever remember that being part of jet lag.  I wake up a little disoriented because they feel so real and I have to tell myself that it was just a dream. 

Is this normal?  Any tips on getting rid of jet lag quickly?

    Did you take the maleria medicine? If so, I would think the dreams are from that! I hope it passes soon.

    I had really bad jet lag when I came back from England. I was there for so long that my body just did not know what to do! I would wake up at 3am and with 30 min intervals after that until I got frustrated and got out of bed. I remember just not taking naps and coffee during the day at the rough spots. Within a week, you should be back to normal 🙂 Love you guys!

    Eat more protein during normal waking hours and carbs before normal sleeping times. Also, melatonin can help with getting longer night’s sleep.
