Polyphasic Sleep Pattern – Update 3.0

A while ago I went headfirst into the ideas behind Polyphasic Sleep and thought that it could be of great help as I have had-and still have-troubles with my sleeping; mainly I sleep to much.

After I had taken a look into the many different variations of this sleep-system I decided to give the Everyman a try, with a small modification to suit my work schedule. Said and done I went for it. I did fail with a massive sleep five days in; missed a complete workday and completely messed up the continuation of this sleeping schedule.

So what happened after that catastrophic failure? Well, I got in touch with the healthcare service through work and now, after the “initial talk” I will be seeing a doctor to take some basic tests to rule out any kind of low nutrition, minerals, vitamins or whatever. After that, who knows… I was told that I might be sent to a specialist, a psychiatrist of some sort to really get down into the deep with my sleep problems.

As it stands. Everything is going fine until one day-seemingly random-I fall asleep for twenty-four hours or more. My guess is stress-related issues that I am not aware of as of yet. We’ll see how things pans out. It would be lovely to get a hold of my sleeping and get rid of those super long sleeps.

So for now I will continue my life as if everything is fine. Sleep like a “normal” person and just hope I can find the “problem” with help from doctors and the likes.


Author: Alaska Frank

Who is Alaska Frank? Some would describe him as a strange fellow with really messed up ideas. Maybe that’s true as his scripts are pretty damn odd. And brutal. For me, Alaska Frank is my personal way to handle reality. He’s my alter ego I created long ago to match the way I feel. The name Alaska points to my cold heart and no feeling of regret or shame or any other feelings for that matter. Frank stands for my honesty to everyone in any given situation. Some might take this as something offensive and become mad or sad or both while others appreciate it. My alter ego Alaska Frank has grown over the years and has now, in recent times he has become a real person for me. Even if you can’t meet Alaska Frank in real person he exist within me and follows me everywhere and I can bring him out whenever I need him. This might sound odd, like I escape the reality, afraid to meet the harsh. This is not the case. Alaska Frank is me and has always been me. It’s just not until my later years I realized it. Call it an identity crisis. Or any other thing if you like. But the fact is – I am Alaska Frank. And will always be. And I identify myself with my own creation. The main occupation for Alaska is writing, mostly drama for the stage but at some occasions he also writes fiction novels and poetry. He is fond charmed by the things presented with an open mind, things created to think and philosophize about. A bit of odd dark humor thrown in to it does not hurt either. Alaska Frank is pretty open with his projects he’s working on and if you are interested you can read small and early synopsis-like presentations of a bunch of stories he has in the Upcoming project and Current Project-pages. Feel free to comment on everything you read on this blog, either it’s posts or pages. I will answer if there’s a question in hand. Something else you might want to know: Alaska Frank is from Sweden, hence his main language are not English. He writes in English for the simple reason to learn, so if you read any of the content on this blog feel free to comment on this matter.

  1. Is polyphasic something like 4 hours sleep, then another 4 hours at a later period?
    Hope you get to the bottom of the issue.

    Sleep is such a mysterious beast. Sometimes perfect, often too short, rarely too long and even if it is sleeping too long is bad too so they say…confusing stuff.
