> Question, are you saying that if I were to cut down my sleep time to say 8 hours, that by itself could cause a boost in my mood? I am so tired when I wake up.

I don't know.

In my own experience if I don't have a schedule externally imposed on me then I tend to sleep rather a lot of hours (maybe up to 12 or 13 even) and I feel tired when I wake up.

Of course I'd rather be dead, but there we go. Just spending so much of my life 'on hold' while other people collect up all the money and collect up more and more and more and more money while I wait around for them to do their job...

But that's me...

When I have a schedule then I can only sleep around 7-8 hours per night. Maybe get a re-set of 12 hours once a week or maybe once every second week. I find it hard to get used to the schedule to start with. Feel tired.. Feel a bit buggy eyed.. Feel a bit more physiologically fight / flight. Feel better for it. Eventually. Settle into things. End up starting to wake up 20 minutes before the alarm and then 5 minutes before the alarm.

But then of course so much more is going on with my life / in my life when I have that kind of a schedule. Usually I'm enrolled in classes which feel to me like I'm making some kind of progress on towards some end towards some better future.

So it's a bit hard to know how much is down to the different sleep patterns and how much is to do with the reasoning as to why the sleep patterns are different.

Of course I could (in theory) set my alarm for the same time each day and try and impose that schedule on myself. But I don't tend to. So.

I haven't heard anyone developing permanent problems by messing with differnet amounts of sleep...

But that's not to say that people haven't...

But I think quite a few people have at least a few experiences of weeks or perhaps months where they went a bit sleep deprived (I mean a bit -- like 6 or 7 hours per night)... Or a night without sleep. Playing computer games or at a slumber party or whatever. Painting. Whatever.
