I work midnights and sometimes I go get a pillow and a blanket and sleep at a desk like that.....ssshhhhh don't tell anyone. When I am sleep deprived I am sleep drunk, headache, don't know what day it is...it is easy to get like that working midnights but I just try to sleep as soon as I get home and I turn off the phone and take Joel somewhere so my sleep will be uninterrupted. I like this post, very informative.
