Link: The insomnia machine…

18kennedy-superjumbo

Here’s a great piece on insomnia by Pagan Kennedy in the New York Times. I think insomnia is a condition that is very much misunderstood, especially in terms of how debilitating it is. There is nothing to bring on a bout of black depression like a few nights of no sleep. On my insomniac days, I have the brain function of a zombie, except I crave sugar and carbs instead of brains. Need that cheap energy. I’m going to try the headphone hack described here and see if it helps. Maybe an audio version of Middlemarch will finally be the cure for my insomnia!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I’m off to look up the Sleep With Me podcast. Also, anyone who doesn’t understand how debilitating insomnia is should look up fatal familial insomnia. It’s the sort of stuff horror novels are made of.

    Best of luck with the headphones.
