Sleepless in Wilmette…and that’s bad
I got my sight back when I was put on steroids. The great thing about steroids is that that it cleared up my short-term vision issue. The worst thing about steroids is that I couldn’t sleep much. When I mean “much”, I mean for weeks I got maybe three hours a night, and possibly another cat nap or two during the day. Now that I’ve just finished my steroid taper, I’m hoping to sleep like a normal personal, or at least like I used to sleep.
According to a recent Lumosity posting, sleep is critically important to forming long-term memories - http://www.lumosity.com/blog/sleep/
It makes me wonder if the Lumosity I was doing at 3am was any good at all and if I’ve forgotten something important that I thought I learned during that time.
