        I went to bed at 2AM, up at 7 for work. The culprit? the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. I think your excuse is better than mine.

          I get up 4-415 and I have got to be in bed by 10. I prefer 8, with a 20 minute nap at lunch. Too many nights of 10 in a row, and I start getting sick.

          If I worked outdoors, I could handle waaaaaaaaaaay less sleep.

            When I'm on trial I usually only get 4 or 5 hours a night tops and it isn't all good sleep. As soon as I'm done, I and can sleep 12 hours that first night with no problem.

              Is that because trials make for a long day, or you're so wired to do/say everything right and win the case that you just can't sleep?

              A little of both, really. There is always a bunch of work to do after court to get ready for the next day, sometimes several hours worth. But the real issue is the stress/adrenaline/wiredness that starts even a couple/few days before the trial starts and continues until it's over. That's what really limits sleep.

            I've been off my night work schedule since Tues night. Fell asleep around 10, woke up this morning at 3am. Made coffee. After that was gone I had a small glass of my favorite wine because it sounded good. I'm all sorts of mixed up....and it's only 5:30am.

                Funny thing is, for the most part, I DO love what I do. Many lawyers I know hate it. I did, too, when I was in my 30's, but I eventually rediscovered my passion for it in my 40's. Also, I always want to try cases and for a good part of my early career trials were few and far between for me. Now it is nearly all I do and, while it is a lot harder and more stressful than I imagined in my youth, it is way more rewarding, most of the time.
