Why yes, I am blogging a little later than usual. Thanks for noticing. Because I had two days of chemo in a row, that meant two days of dex in a row, which in turn meant that I was awake for 40 straight hours without even a little bit of catnapping. So what would happen when bedtime rolled around? Would I stay up all night again? Or would 40 hours plus a sleeping pill be enough to vanquish the dex?

The sleep debt plus the pill won. Hooray! This is useless knowledge since I’ll never do this two days in a row again, but really, is any knowledge ever truly useless?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
