    An interesting article on sleep.

    There is a reference to second sleep in one of the Bronte sister's books. I, of course, do not remember which one. :sluggish:

    ETA: I was tired when I got home this evening, so I had something to eat and laid down to 'rest a bit' at 10pm. I didn't wake up until 12:30 am. Now I am still up, which is longer than the tradition period between first and second sleep.

    I've heard this before, it might have been covered by NYT even.

    When I made a recovery last year I was getting at least 10-11 hours of sleep, but it occurred over a 13-14 hour span where I woke up several times during the night and early morning.
