That's what I figured. I don't know if I will stick to it right now though. I am on call this coming week and don't want to be a zombie all week. It would be nice to have a week or two off work to get through the tough adaption phase of this. I think what I might do is just start going to bed a little later each night and still get up at 6am until I am getting close to 4.5 hours of sleep...at the same time try napping in the evening each night. I think that might be easier than going strait to 4.5 hrs of sleep. Last night I couldn't get to sleep at all and have been really bagged all day, I did nap for a couple of hours this morning...not solid sleep but a little bit. I have to go to a concert tonight and will probably go to bed when I get back. I love the thought of having those extra hours in the evening night, last night I learned a new song on guitar and watched a movie and read...it was great...but then when it came time for bed I couldn't shut down, I usually never have that problem. probably to much stimulation that late at night.
