> FB sounds like the lack of sleep caught up with you and you got some much needed sleep. Love Phillipa

Yes. Maybe true. At least I am beginning to respond to Emsam, so that is potentially good. I do complain a bit :-/

Before I was ever medicated, sleep and regulation have been there. I don't understand it, but if I stand back a bit, maybe I can see: o.k. The depression piece is being helped. +1. The anxiety is under control. +2.

The mood thing still comes. Fatigue issues aren't new. Sleep issues aren't new.

Maybe look at the sleep differently, like have that focused on medically as a sleep disorder and see it as such, one that is tied up with bad nerves and psychological issues. But a *separate* issue. I have had terrible bouts of sleep paralysis that accompany the deep drops into sleep.

Not that I have the energy and time to pursue this now. But funny how I am now falling asleep in the day again after at least a year of being awake during the day.

Sometimes a change in perspective is good and might signal some new observations and progress down the road. For now, will do the best I can to muscle through the sleep fits if they continue and be thankful for the positive.
