MehDon't know what it means when you go to a sleep clinic and don't sleep. That's not entirely accurate - instead of falling asleep within 5 minutes of head -> pillow contact, I lay there in the dark for well over an hour (it felt like at least 5 hours, so I'm assuming it was an hour or so) before I eventually did fall asleep. Only to dream of being in a sleep clinic, but this one was in a rustic farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and of mistakenly driving down the wrong side of a divided highway.
The tech that conducted the study woke me up around 5:40 and removed the contacts (including a solvent to get the goop out of my hair, so I apparently had a better tech than K). I honestly have no idea if they got enough data or not and probably won't for another couple of weeks - I assume I'll do at least one more sleepover, either to gather more data or to see how I do on a CPAP.
Honestly it was not an unpleasant experience and I have no idea why I had so much trouble falling asleep, unless it was lack of beer (it's certainly possible that I've become somewhat dependent on having a couple of pale ales to get to sleep) or the fact that I was sacking out an hour and a half earlier than usual.
Getting to work an hour early didn't start my day off right either, but I did use the time to catch up a little bit.
