11:25 am - Why 5AM? Both nights that I was in Boston, I woke up sharply at precisely 5AM. Couldn't figure out why. I was, and am, even more perplexed to find out that I was STILL waking up, sharply, at precisely 5AM after I got back. This morning was no exception, although - very strangely, for a guy who's pretty heavily depressed - I was actually proud of myself for managing to keep myself in bed both then and when I woke up again at 6:45 and not actually get out of bed until a little after eleven.
But what the everloving fuck is the story with 5:00 AM?
consider taking melatonin to regulate your sleeptimes -- it's OTC and no side effects that I know of (mild depressant, much milder than alcohol -- same shit yr brain pumps out to make you yawn and go "oooh tired..."). probably won't help you wake up at normal times, but it'll help you go to sleep sooner and hence get more rest.
Alternately, you could move someplace where your waking time is closed to their local 6 or 7 am.
