This new discovery that confirms that sleep deprivation is worse than you thought has been making the rounds on the internet. Here is a quote from an article about this new finding:

In a nutshell, this new study provides evidence that we need a certain amount of sleep every night, because the brain takes this time to rid itself of toxic metabolic byproducts, which would otherwise accumulate in the brain and impair brain function, destroy neurons — and potentially cause neurodegenerative disorders.

Eek!!! As a very cranky, very sleep-deprived, and very sad-that-it-is-1:30-am lady, I am going to publish this post and then head straight to bed!!
