I’ve been there, but to much lesser extent. I also get the thing where my brain decides to wake me at 2 am and remind me about every idiotic thing I’ve ever done in my life.
I’ve also found that staring at a screen (computer OR television) too late into the evening trips my “stay awake” sensor. (I wonder what something like a Kindle would do to me, seeing that most of my “entertainment” reading is done right before bed.)
fillyjonk is right, both in terms of the literature and my personal experience. I find I cannot write at night anymore, because I continue to process. I take a half a Zyrtec and go to bed with The Wife (earlier than I’m otherwise inclined)

"I couldn't possibly fail to disagree with you less."
It is written
"It is a source of continuing disappointment in every American's life that whenever one feels a strange hand groping around one's buttocks, it is never an attractive stranger, but merely some large or small politician searching for one's wallet." — Gerard Van der Leun
