Just now realizing I haven't slept in 9 months

I’ll cut to the chase and just say that I read through every post in the last 9 months, which, haven’t been that many. Not really surprised at that considering I haven’t found the time to eat either. I couldn’t help but laugh when I read myself telling myself in January “it’s just 14 weeks” of pushing through intense work and sleep deprivation.

Yeah, try more like 36 IF I’m lucky. Look, it’s almost 6am and I haven’t slept yet. I tried—really I did. But with comprehensive exams coming up and the hellish disaster that I will refer to as the “August 2018 incident” where somehow I was the only responsible person (ok maybe a few others) in the room. Actually, it’s only thanks to other people that I’m still standing.

Anyway, I didn’t realize I’ve been a shit show for 9 months straight now. I think I’ll try to isolate my whining and moaning. Fine, I’ll admit I have a better understanding of why my family was getting on me about…not sleeping and stress eating 20 lbs off of me. No kidding, getting a PhD is the crash diet moms would have KILLED for in the 90s.
