I just woke up from a nap. It was the first time that I woke up on my own!! I think that I am making great headway. Generally, day 3 and 4 are supposed to be the worst. So far, my day 3 was pretty great. I had an awesome nap in the evening, where I fell asleep pretty easily and then woke up pretty easily. Right now, a little after midnight, I am pretty excited that I still have the entire night ahead of me. I am already planning the things that I can get done for school and business. Just to give you a comparison, on the first night at about 5 am, my body and mind were both flipping out. basically saying "what is wrong with you Neetu? Have you turned into a nocturnal freak? Why are you doing this STUPID sleep experiment?!?!?! GO TO SLEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!!!!!!!" So, there has been great improvement since then.
On another note, I have seen some changes in my health in the past few days. On day 1, I started the day with allergies for some odd reason, which hasn't happened in months. Then on day 2, the allergies persisted so I had to go to class with tissues. Today, my allergies greatly diminished and hardly bothered me, which is great! In the past, when I would have an allergy ridden day, the only way to get over it was with a full night's rest. I was paying close to see when the allergies would go away because I hate taking a daily allergy pill. It is just such a hassle. It was nice to let it pass naturally and let my body take care of it. I am excited to see what the rest of the night brings. Last night, Manish was having a really tough time staying awake. It was his third night and he was just really suffering. Kind of delerious and all. Ty said that the difficult phase is unavoidable, so I keep expecting it to come, but it doesn't show up. Kind of strange. We'll see. I'll keep posting my updates.
