Okay so two chia related questions.
The first is:
Has anyone who's been doing chia for a little while now noticed it interrupting their sleep cycle? For the last two weeks every single night (with the exception of a few where I've taken Ambien or tylenol PM in desperation) I have woken up sharply at 2 am, wide awake as if it were morning. And since I refuse to just give into the wakefullness, I toss and turn for a few hours, falling asleep just before dawn (and thus ending up groggy when the alarm goes off an hour later). It seems to not matter what time I go to sleep, I wake up at 2 (this could be psychological of course). Friday night I ended up staying up with friends until around 2 anyways. I was starting to get sleepy right around 11 or so, which is my normal time to go to sleep, but 1:45 rolled around and I got a second wind, and you guessed it, was unable to sleep until just before dawn.
Its driving me absolutely crazy, and I have no idea what could be causing it, but I half wonder if it has anything to do with chia? I know its supposed to give you more energy, but I actually don't notice more energy through the day, just my normal amount. In fact, because of this crazy sleep cycle thing, I've been more tired during the day, usually I get my second wind as I'm leaving work in the afternoon, lately, I have been going home and just wanting to sit on the couch and do nothing. Granted I was sick last week, and that could have something to do with it, but I can't help but think that the chia is somehow related...
