Hi.

I experience diurnal mood variation, a fairly common phenomenon, on a daily basis. This is where one's mood slowly improves (or sometimes worsens) as the day progresses.

For myself, this means that by the time I feel vaguely human, the sun is rising (4:30am here in UK and I am about to go and lift some weights. Work that one out) and I don't want to go to sleep because I know I'll wake up feeling that much worse.

I can relate strongly to your experiences.

*Crappy* old year.
Happy new year.

Jah.
