Now that I’m on (the very anxiety inducing) new medication, my sleep patterns have changed significantly.  (Actually, they’ve become part of the anxiety, but that’s another post…)  Whereas previously I would read a book during the late hours of the night and then sleep ’til noon, I’m now crashing out after about 6 pages of reading. (I am waking up at least three or four times during the night, but I’m getting back to sleep pretty easily.)

As my psychologist said, “welcome to everyone else’s world.”  I now understand why the library loans generally run for 4 weeks – I’m just not getting enough reading done!

This ties back in with my earlier post about needing to have contact with people and find something meaningful to do when I have Good (or at least Not Too Bad) Days.
