G'day Link

I know what you mean about restoring the mystical feeling with sleep deprivation, although I'm thinking back a bit.

But what about all the depressed insomniacs? Maybe when you sleep well, a bit less will do the trick. Younger people will tend to sleep better.

For the last 10 years I've always wanted more sleep. 6 hours is good and 3 frightful the next day.

And when my mother became depressed with agitation her first complaint was that she couldn't sleep. What she needed, and this could be in the other thread (illegal vs legal drugs), was an old fashined paternalistic doctor, I imagine him arriving in a horse drawn cab, and he would have given her an injection of morphine (son, broken neck, plenty of guilt), sat with her talking until she was asleep, and repeat for a week, with practical instructions for life when appropriate. I think her depression had elements of frightful loneliness not helped much by the professional, somewhat distanced approach of her doctors and care givers.
