Does the Full Moon Bring out the Crazies?

It’s amazing how your body changes, as you get older. And about a year ago . . . I noticed a significant twist in my sleeping patterns.

Thing is . . . it ONLY happens during a full moon.

I’m an unbelievably deep sleeper . . . I can zonk out quickly and sleep until the alarm (or our kids) wake me up. Years of working in television will do that to you.

But when it’s a full moon . . . my body is SCREWED UP all night. It’s only when there’s a full moon. And it’s consistent with every full moon.

The experts tell me it’s all in my head.

They say the full moon doesn’t impact people.

Challenging Science

I’m calling “BS” on that.

I saw it when I use to work overnights in TV. When there was a full moon, without fail, the crazies came out.

My friends in law enforcement swear it as well. Same with nurses. Firefighters. Even teachers that I’m friends with.

There’s something about a full moon that just seems to screw people up.

But the thing is . . . there’s no scientific proof to back it up.

However, it’s not a new theory. Moreover, the idea that the moon messes with your body and mind goes all the way back to pre-Christian ties. Furthermore, even Hippocrates himself weighed in on the topic, stating: “No physician should be entrusted with the treatment of disease who was ignorant of the science of astronomy.”

Heck . . . it’s even in the word “lunatic.” The old English word for lunatic was monseoc, which literally means moon-sick.

So the hell with the experts – I want to know what YOU have all experienced. Is the full-moon-brings-out-the-crazies theory all in our heads . . . or do you see it on the streets as well?
