Last night I started this blog and at the same time I worried if I was getting hypomanic because I was staying up late. I dont think that’s what it was though. I’ve learned something new about myself and want to share my experience.
The fact that I still slept 7-8 hours tells me that I’m not in the hypomanic state because I don’t have the endless energy associated with hypomania. But then today I fell asleep while doing research on bipolar type 2 which is what my therapist thinks I have. So does sleeping in the middle of the day mean that maybe I’m depressed? I dont think so but sleeping in the middle of the day is not normal for me at all.
The questions keep going through my mind, not in a flight of ideas or racing thoughts way but just in a curiosity type way. I want to know my mind and body better now that I know about this condition.
This questioning of my symptoms and my condition is part of the journey I suppose… more to follow.
