i've been a chronic back sleeper my entire life. i've also usually been a very flat sleeper. but lately, my sleeping patterns have changed and i think my body is confused during sleep. it just doesn't know where to stick itself.
a few weeks ago, we went camping. before i drifted off to sleep, ng, who knows that i get cold very easily, told me "if you get cold, sleep on your belly. it keeps you warm." sure enough, halfway through the night, i woke up chattering. i flipped over on my stomach, and slept soundly through the night. for the next two days, i slept on my belly, and returned to civilization with a knack for sleeping that way.
unfortunately, i discovered that it also messed up my neck and my back. my neck hurts all the time now, and my body wakes up in the middle of the night in some contorted position halfway through a back-sleeping and belly-sleeping position.
weird, weird. so on another note, does that mean my personality has changed? according to this bbc article, i used to be a soldier but now i'm a freefaller... maybe i'm just multiple-sleep personality disorder.Posted by redchilipepper at June 22, 2005 09:52 AM
