Sleep Diary Spreadsheet

With an impending PSG/MSLT (December 2nd, 2010), and a particularly disrupted night's sleep recently...I got to thinking that I would start my sleep diary now. Rather than wait until the requested 2 weeks before the PSG/MSLT.

Of course, the sleep lab provided a sleep diary on a printed sheet to fill out. Which means either I fill it from memory now and then, or carry it wherever I go. If only there were some way to, say, use a computer.... :hmm:

I did a quick google search, and all I could find were PDF files. Surely somebody else has thought of this? :?:

So, looking at the provided sleep diary sheet from the sleep lab, I sat down and created a sleep diary spreadsheet using OpenOffice....using my laptop (Ubuntu 10.04LTS) [which when at home is on futon in front of TV, but I'll be at Chicago TARDIS the weekend before the PSG/MSLT]

:!: SleepDiary.ods :!: BlankSleepDiary.ods :!:

I opted to leave it in the default format, so that I won't have to deal with OpenOffice asking if I'm sure that I want to not use OpenDocument format.

I then saved the file into my Dropbox folder and created a link from my desktop to it. I can now update my sleep diary wherever I might be.

Such as living room computer (Windows XP Professional - OpenOffice), or computer next to bedroom (Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64-bit Server), or computer at work (Windows 7 Professional - LibreOffice).

Liking the result so much, I've decided that I should share it. &#59;D

If you do use it, you'll probably want to change the first date field to a real date, rather than the formulated recent Sunday based on TODAY(). Also feel free to make it shorter or longer, or come up with other codes....I based mine off of what my sleep lab requested. And, its longer than I needed, but went with enough to fill a single doublesided sheet. There aren't quite that many weeks from now to my PSG/MSLT....

I also provided example of how I'm filling it out.... :lalala:

Enjoy :cool:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
