My meds are working. My brain is not.

Look what I can do!

Look what I can do!

This weekend was a blur. I have been doing crafts, including making an apple swan! But it came with a price. I’ve been manic, which sucks. Last night I was up until 4am. Ick.

I tried to sleep, really, I did. I’ve just not been nice to my body the last few weeks. I keep going to bed really late, and waking up really late. It makes me unproductive and it makes me act weird.

In the end though, I slept. I’m tired, but doing stuff. It always worries Jenny though. She never knows what to do with me when I’m manic. She’s afraid (with reason) that I will hurt myself, or do something stupid. Thankfully, neither was the case last night.

On the upside, I’ve been doing really interesting things, like make homemade breads. It’s awesome. Also, my (unrecognized) mania resulted in a night sleeping in front of the fireplace being all cuddly with Jenny. It was cozy and nice.

Today, I’m groggy. I will still go on with my day, and try not to nap. I’m hoping to have friends over for game night. We will see if that works out.

Have a good Wednesday, folks.

    It seems so alien to me that the discipline of sleep is so damn importanint. It truly makes such a huge difference to me. I have been pretty good mood wise for over 2 months now. The last piece of my puzzle was sleeping 7-8 hours a night. This is not to say that I am donig this of free will. Years of late nights makes is seriously tempting to just ‘say up a little longer’. With that sort of non sleep comes my slides into darkness. Luckliy the Dr. has found a medicine that slows down my brain enogh at night to let me sleep. I hope I stay in this remission a long time. A very very very long time.

    Routine is boring but so necessary for me to keep on ‘the bright side of life’ (see how I worked Monty Python in there? 🙂 )

    Hugs. I hope you get back on track with sleeping again. Take care.

      Thanks, love. Yes, I know sleep is important. I’m just obsessed with stuff, and that makes things hard. (cough level 75 cough)
