I don't know.

I have a (perhaps?) similar thing with waking in the morning and feeling fairly awful. Awful enough to choose to go back to blissful sleep if possible rather than starting my day. When I get up it takes me a while to get going... A slump, yeah.

I wonder if this is what drives people to high sugar breakfast (for the fairly instant energy burst / feel good?)

I don't know.

I find what helps me is to have something to get up for. Where I have to set an alarm and actually get up and get moving when it says in order to get out the door on time. After a bit of a nasty transition period I eventually pop out of bed and get things done in a relatively unthinking state... And I'm into my day without any pains at all... I try my best to mimic that when I don't have something I need to get to - but I don't seem capable of doing that... I always in my drowsy state think that it is a better idea to cheat myself and go back to sleep...
