Photo of the day: Fractured sleep
I created this image in an attempt to capture what the effects of this condition feel like. I live my days feeling half awake, half in a surreal dream state. My thoughts struggle to come together, but it feels like my synapses aren't aligned properly. Time exists in a strange state where every moment feels the same as every other, with no sense of the passage of time between them. Whole days go by without feeling like time has moved. I observe my life and feel detatched from it.
I'm looking forward, now, to another sleep study, which hopefully will not only confirm my diagnosis but test solutions for dealing with it. Meanwhile, I look in the mirror, and see a fractured soul.
