3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Most people's body clocks if uncontrolled tend to slip forwards, getting up and going to bed increasingly later. Mine however is slipping BACKWARDS, meaning I'm waking and wanting to nod off increasingly earlier. After a few days waking too early and going to bed between 10 and 11, the sleep debt gets too big and I need my bed around 20:30
A further complication is waking up 3 - 4 am INCREDIBLY HORNY, hornier than I've felt since my thirties, but no matter how horny I think I am, if I indulge it, I can't finish and all I get is incredibly sweaty and more sleep debt. Yet during proper daytime, I'm less horny but have no problem finishing if I start, either solo or otherwise.
All this of course is ultimately due to bodily changes caused by ageing, and it is simply a case of adapting to circumstances. During the night, I know that no matter how horny I feel, I have to simply leave myself alone. Regarding sleep debt, I will just have to get the odd early night in. Waking early is actually quite handy, as I can get all my blogging done before the day gets going. The cats like it too, they get an early breakfast!
