The Essentiality of Sleep Through the Recovery of Depression
When I think of how important sleep is, I am reminded that sleep deprivation is often used as a form of torture. In an article titled “Why Sleep Deprivation is Torture: Prolonged Sleep Deprivation is a Cruel and Useless Method of Interrogation”, Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D, notes that, “The first signs of sleep deprivation are unpleasant feelings of fatigue, irritability, and difficulties concentrating. Then come problems with reading and speaking clearly, poor judgment, lower body temperature, and a considerable increase in appetite. If the deprivation continues, the worsening effects include disorien...
