Jetlag, Gevalt

This visit to the states has been more jetlagged than most of my recent ones.

I'm tired at the wrong times and now, close to midnight I have an energy spurt.

I brought some sleeping pills, which I had gotten for the previous visit, so now I must find them.  I took them the first night.  And I had a good night's sleep.  Since thenI didn't take any.  I kept alternating between good and short nights of sleep.

I usually get very tired early evening.  I even dozed off at the table when my sister and her husband had guests, not very charming or sociable of me.  Soon I perked up and rejoined the conversation.  No doubt they have all experienced something similar.  At least I hope so.

It's not worth getting aggravated over what we can't control.  No doubt I'll feel better tomorrow, the day before I go home...

You can't really just look at jet lag alone. Think about the reason for your visit - to see your parents. The emotional issues always come to play in how we feel.

Leora, so true, thanks. Did you see the post after this one? It can go in your Jewish mourning section.
