Trouble Sleeping - Novembering
Writing on a non-twenty-four-hour body clock. Since my mid teens, I've had a non-twenty-four body clock. In summary, my sleeping hours don't line up with the movement of the earth: on a planet that took an extra hour to rotate, I'd go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day, but because my circadian rhythm is longer than it's meant to be, my natural pattern is to fall asleep an hour later every night and wake later in the morning.

"If you’ve had jet lag, think about what having it all the time would be like. Missing out on hours of sleep you need and going to work exhausted; struggling not to collapse throughout the day; injuring yourself due to not being alert; feeling dizzy; living with a permanently upset stomach from eating at—for you—the wrong times. When your body clock works the way mine does, that’s what straitjacketing yourself into ordinary sleeping hours is like."
