Please my love, please, I beg you, go to bed early! Sleep 7-8 hours every night! Some people don't need as much sleep because they retain a degree of calmness from the inside out! I don't think you do! Why? Because if you did, you wouldn't be you!! I love you madly because you are like this!!! Choose sleep over any supplementary activity! Please try to so your nervous system remains balanced for the rest of your life! I'll beg you on my knees if I have to!
