Sleep and feeling "normal"

Hi DL.

I know what you mean about what a wonderful present
sleep is. I've been a chronic insomniac all my
life and a good night's sleep is just the absolutely,
totally wonderful best thing in life... yep, even
ahead of chocolate and maybe good sex. The jury
is still out on that one. ~laughing~

Feeling normal... There were days, weeks, months,
years even when I wondered if I'd ever feel "normal"
again. Sometimes it takes a while of feeling "normal",
or I prefer to call it "yourself" before you realize
you do feel normal.

This week I had a "bad" week, depressed and down,
didn't want to get out of bed (I missed some of my
medicine doses - I have to get better about that!).
It is reversible, and you can feel like your old self
again. When I finally did get off of my butt and take
my medicine like I'm supposed to, I'm good. I treat
myself often -- it could be just staying in on a Friday
night and wearing warm snuggly sweats, making sinfully
delicious hot chocolate, playing my favorite music on
the stereo and reading a trashy novel (that's what I
did last night! How positively selfish! ~big smile~)

Sometimes it's a bubble bath with a glass of wine; or a
manicure. Othertimes it could be flirting outrageously,
telling jokes or even petting my animals. When I treat
myself, indulge myself, I'm taking care of me, and
it helps maintain/achieve/whatever that feeling of
normalness, happiness, selfness.

Take care of you, hon, and good luck.
