My goal is to track the correlation of WBTB length (and actual estimated awake time) with the quality of what follows. I will also be noting supplement usage.
(If there is a more appropriate board for this, I hope a properly informed Aegis guilder will move it there!)
2011-1-17 .5hr WBTB 1.0hr awake L-theanine steady vibrations, poor recall, good HI and near lucid
2011-1-19 .25hr WBTB .5hr awake no sups pulsing vibrations, poor recall
2011-1-20 .5hr WBTB 1.5hr (at least) awake no sups no vibrations, fair recall, one uncaught FA.
2011-1-22 .25hr WBTB .25hr awake caffeine for CWILD, but no headache right back to sleep and vivid dreams, but no lucidity. Strongly pulsed vibrations - 8 seconds vibrating and 2 seconds still.
2011-1-23 .25hr WBTB .5hr awake DHEA and L-Theanine steady vibrations, vivid dreams, great recall and some lucidity - but not much.
2011-1-24 .25hr WBTB .25hr awake no sups at WBTB, but melatonin and B6 before bed no vibrations, two spontaneous lucids and vivid recall of three other dreams.
2011-1-25 No deliberate WBTB, as I hoped and intended to sleep restfully through the night. I woke at 3:00, vibrating, and tossed and turned the rest of the night. The vibrations did not pulse or ebb until after I got up for the day.
2011-1-26 .25hr WBTB .25hr awake no sups b4 or during gentle, non-pulsed vibrations. I managed to use my bass guitar to find a match to the frequency of vibrations, which turned out to be between Eb1 and E1 - about 40hz. Fair recall.
2011-1-27 .25hr WBTB 1hr+ awake L-theanine B4, none during steady, strong vibrations and difficulty staying asleep the remainder of the night. Good recall.
2011-1-29 Overshot my WBTB time, got up and couldn't get back to sleep.
2011-1-30 .25hr WBTB, .5hr awake, caffeine (but no headache), couple vivid dreams then awake for good.
2011-2-5 .25hr WBTB, 1hr awake, caffeine (had headache), one lucid
2011-2-6 .25hr WBTB, .75hr awake, galantime, intense string of vivid and confused lucids and non-lucids
2011-2-11 .25hr WBTB, 1hr awake, no sups b4 or during - steady vibrations in between dream cycles, but slower than usual. Estimate 16 - 20 hz. Not pulsed. Good recall.
2011-2-18 .25hr WBTB, .5hr awake, calea and 130mg caffeine with aspirin. Good recall, no lucidity, pulsed vibrations.
2011-2-20 .25hr WBTB, .75hr awake, 1/4 nicotine patch. Lucid dreams and steady 40hz vibrations in between - and still vibrating 2 hours after waking up. (I was quite ill early yesterday with severe vertigo and motion sickness, took Dramamine which likely plays into this.)
