This is making me feel better about sleeping

It doesn't seem like such an unusual thing.

A good fifteen minute nap is sometimes enough to get me up and working. It makes for a choppy life since I generally forget to some degree what happened before it. Sometimes completely forget, more often just make it feel like it happened a long time ago on a planet far far away. Emotionally forget.

But still it has a good ratio of return, at least when the shorter naps are enough.

BTW, I once exasperatedly told my therapist that it would probably be useful for him to have some of my emotional sensitivity (because talking to him used to occasionally be like talking to Dr. Bob), and he answered that if he had any significant degree of my emotional sensitivity, he wouldn't be able to be a therapist at all.

I thought that was an interesting statement. It helped me understand him and his protective boundaries a bit better.
