yeah, still not sure. When I restrict that last 2 hours of sleep I feel markedly better. Its like my mind is faster to think of things to do. I am also faster to just start things without having to really force myself into it.

The last 2 hours is hard, because if I wake up at 6, my body *really* wants to get that last 2 hours. I am experimenting with just a teeny dose of ritalin to turn the brainstem on at this point and perhaps shift the type of sleep that occurs.

My guess is that there is some sort of switch that happens during these two hours. If an organism is stressed it will wake up early and have energy to deal with stressors. If sleep is complete, the body releases a "depression" chemical to try and ground the organism behaviorally and psychologically. When feeling "down" the organism is more likely to reduce energy expendurture and reassess its situation.

or something...
