crazyethel Posted February 1, 2006 Share Posted February 1, 2006 I am so tired of being defined by my bipolar. I want it to be as much in the background as possible, like my wide feet. I can't remember what a "normal" day is like, what "normal" sleep is like, what "normal" communication is like. I know my memories are probably romantized, but how can you know what to work toward, if you can't remember what it was like (if ever)? For example, re sleep, I take an Ambien CR and sleep about 7-8 hours. I do dream, but not anything scary. Usually a couple of hours before the 7-8, I find I am waking up on and off. When I get up, I am alert and not hungover. So, is that sleep pattern anything like what a "normal" person would experience? What about the other stuff? Anytime something seems difficult for me, my first thought is always bipolar. It's very tiresome. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
