My brain is flagging, and the dynamo that powers my body is spinning to shake free, crackling like an electric wildfire.

I don't know how to bleed off the energy. If I exercise, I won't sleep.

I'm not exactly sleeping now, either.

Maybe meditation will help.

Meditating for ten minutes never seems long enough. If I find anything even approaching stillness, I want to stay there. It's seductive and such a departure from normal.
