Slowly waking up...

I've only had one cup of coffee and just made my second. I shut off the alarm clock at 7 am and turned over and slept some more until I woke up on my own. I had some very interesting dreams during that time. Actually, it was a long story and it seemed to take forever. I must analyze it over the course of the day, because there were a lot of interesting details in it.

I have decided that I'm not depressed, but that I do have therapy fatigue and that this spills over into my regular life and makes me want to huddle in a cocoon and take a "vacation" and let the world get on without me participating for a while.

I sleep a lot during the day due to my medicines (the anti psychotic that I take 3 times a day) and I find this very pleasant, as I'm also sleeping well during the night now. It's like I'm taking a huge time out in the form of sleep and what better way to get rest? I'm like Sleeping Beauty in my castle and my whole world has come to a stop. Even Jesker spends all his time next to me sleeping. It's very nice.

So, that's just really all I've got to tell you right now, because I feel a huge sleep coming on and I'm going to lie down on the sofa with my book.

Have a great day.

Ciao...

It may be a reaction to going back on to your full meds after realising you weren't taking your evening dose.
I think you are worrying about it a bit, otherwise you wouldn't blog about it. So how about asking SPN advice about the situation? The pressure of all the therapy and dieting may be tiring you and putting you off the idea of doing anything. Your SPN is always sensible and seems to get to the heart of things quickly.
Before you know where you are you will be on an up. At least you don't seem to be rapid cycling so much now, the downs and ups seem to be less extreme and to last longer nowadays, or is that the snapshot we are seeing?

I was thinking the same as Frances, you're probably sleeping so much now because you changed your meds recently.

A talk with your SPN may be a good idea, maybe she can help with some suggestions regarding therapy.

I'm with the rest Irene, I do believe it is the change in meds.
But sometimes we desperately need more sleep, I succumb when this happens and feel far better for it.

Yes, your body knows what it needs (sleep, apparently) and it's up to your mind to get in sync with that. Whether it's due to the medication or to the need to escape for a while, I suppose it doesn't matter, does it. You have figured out what's going on, smart woman that you are, and it sounds like you're going to stop worrying about it and just let it take its course. Take care!

Maybe your dreams hold the key.
