I have spent hours and hours in bed, even though I was awake for most of it. Struck by absolute physical exhaustion.
I went to bed at midnight 30 and was up by 2 thinking "please no!" Then I did go back and sleep from at LEAST 6-12 if not 1 so I got at least 8 hours' sleep. I just wish I could have slept EARLIER.
I flicked through 70 pages of Five Go Off In A Caravan but my head was still racing with thoughts of endless other things plus I had one eye on the television, so the book flew past in a blur.
I have been feeling sad and confused, because I was trying to reason to myself that I was not in any way ill, whilst experiencing symptoms that are famously the hallmarks of hypomania. I'm nowhere near as excitable as I was a couple of days ago, so that's good.
If I start sleeping normally again, I'm going back to "normal"; if not, no matter how "normal" I think I feel, the Monster is just round the corner. Bitter experience has taught me this.
Come to think of it though: when am I ever "normal"?!
Now for a famous Eastern-sounding Tune. The music featured in this track is from some film, which is definitely NOT The King And I, which I saw last week... does ANYBODY know the name of the film, the tune, or both?
