I love my new doctor. She has bipolar and is an ex school teacher. She explained why its harder for me to sleep. She understands that your brain can shut off and it just keeps going and going. You about fall asleep and then something pops in your head and stuff plays over and over. I have never had a doctor know what it is like and explain exactly why was going on inside my brain. I hope this continues to be a good relationship. RIght now i wish my meds were making me sleep but they are not! 🙁 My meds are working to make me not feel as much pain from fibro and to not be as depressed but it seems my anxiety is up more than before. Idk if this will go away as it gets into my system or what. It’s been two weeks and is increasing. Hopefully at my appointment on Monday she can give me some insight and help! No one knows, other than those who go through it, what it’s like knowing forever you will be different and abnormal. Never fully as happy as “normal” people. I am very thankful for what i do have, two wonderful kids and husband, but none of them know the daily struggle.
