normal --) f'd up overnight?

Posted by linkadge on February 15, 2011, at 19:40:31

I keep saying to myslef, "I don't understand, I was doing fine....what the hell happened???"

I am amazed at how quickly I can go from feeling normal and stable, to feeling completly and utterly out of control.

Last night I took **WAY** too much to get to sleep and I still only got like 3 hours of sleep. My brain decided it was **NOT** going to shut off.

Sorry Linkage. I've had to bludgeon myself to sleep and feel like po*p the next day.

You concerned about tonight? Has your brain slowed down?

Yeah those swings are so disruptive. And to know that just one mind altering agent added to the mix can do this so easily and quickly is disturbing. I drank an energy drink before I played basketball a few hours before work one day. I was waiting tables at the time. While play basketball I definitely noticed feeling different, but because I was moving and exerting energy, I really don't think the full impact of this energy drink was realized. Then I went to work. I could barely function well enough to wait tables. I was definitely manic, much more so than normal. A couple that I was waiting on had to leave because something I was doing upset the wife so much she started crying. I suspect maybe she had some type of mental illness herself and my behavior was triggering a response inside her. My manager asked me later what happened. I told him I just drank an energy drink before playing basketball! Ya know, I don't even think I finished the whole thing.

Anyway, hopefully you figure out ways to keep the periods of feeling normal lasting longer and the periods of feeling unstable brief and fairly painless.

That's rough...I had a weird experience fairly recently. When it was evident that the Lamictal did not agree with my system I started taking an antihistamine...took 2 Benadryl before bed...which should completely knock me out, so I decided against taking an Ambien that night. Oh, was I wrong! I could NOT get to sleep, my mind raced a mile a minute and then it was too late to do anything about it (5 AM). Or how about the endless nights staying up because I just thought of the latest and greatest business idea that it is necessary to research the hell out of it and type up 10 pages worth of plans! That's loads of fun! lol (Am I the only one who does this?!?)

Feel your pain. So grateful to have found this forum! Is there anything significant/insignificant that has changed in your life or environment? I hope you find stability again very soon.

Ha ha, nope, I was 29. I lived and felt and looked like a teenager in some ways though! Ah the good old days of escape and freedom. I was not dealing with reality back then. But I had lots of fun!

I know you've posted a lot, but I don't remember what you've said. But it doesn't seem like you were bipolar...?

Do you have quick switches very often? I have no answers, I am just curious.
On a stabilizer?

Well you must have been doing something right.

Is there any way you can avoid the trap of dealing with reality?
