Pisces and Narcolepsy

I sometimes think that I'm double-damned- and other times, double-blessed.

Pisces is very much a sign of duality, like Gemini, although more of a concentrated inner conflict than fickleness based on indecision and desire for flexibility.

Narcolepsy is as well, a condition of duality, with the intrusions of REM into periods of wakefulness.

While life can be beautiful and full of possibilities, at times it is overwhelming, and too much. The dreamy introspective generosity and affection attributed to me by pisces, multiplied by the effects of narcolepsy makes others shy away from me, especially when I am in a period of over-sensitive, sarcastic resentment of others in response to them taking advantage of my good nature and half-awake state.

If I won the lottery, life would be easier, in terms of being able to have more control and limit my interactions with negative individuals. I would work on art, and try to be happy, and think about why the world is as it is. And butterflies and snowflakes to make me happy. But that's a bubble of a dream and not practical.


I'm not sure if others feel the same, but I have found that pisces generally tend to have a hard time finding balance, middle-ground to exist from. More often, we end up switching between extremes, overcompensating as we try to neutralize things we dislike in ourselves. Although my observation is based on fellow college attending pisces, and the environment also is most likely having an affect on the severity of the pendulum like response that others see as fickleness.

Well put--as a Gemini Sun, the only thing I would take issue with is the notion that Gemini duality is a fickleness based either on indecision or desire for flexibility. The second is a bit closer to the Gemini spirit, I think. But what appears to be fickleness to others is really the result of a categorical refusal to accept absolutes--even the rejection of absolutism isn't absolute. Gemini is a very verbal-oriented sign, and in accord with that orientation, the Gemini outlook always looks for another side to the story, another twist, another angle. And the tendency is to embrace that kind of multiplicity, rather than wishing to resolve it.

I might also add that I absolutely adore Pisces women, although I've always had to struggle to understand them. Thank you for helping me out with that a bit!

its taken me 57 years lol

I can relate. Thank you

The last few dayse I've been more unbalanced than I've ever been and it's frustrating. I don't have narcolepsy, I do however have insomnia. Hard to sleep, and hard to not think about why I'm so spiritually disturbed right now. It doesn't even have to be as complex as it is right now. People frustrate me greatly

you sound like you're describing me.. i have nacrolepsy too and always feel like im in some sort of intermediate ground or just depressed by being in one of the extremes u mentioned

Man, I can identify with this. I don't have narcolepsy but I still identify. I don't know the answer to your troubles. But your story has touched me. Thanks.

I relate to this completely. It's just that I hate myself because I can't find the alance when honestly we all know we one it only one way n not the other way but the world has both ways... You understand?

Dreams are only dreams if they stay in your head. Trust me, every time I have ever thought I was going to have to work at something or that I wouldn't be good at it, I was. The "work" to achieve my goals is not work as it comes naturally to me. <br />
<br />
Many people are jealous of my success while they kiss up to the man in dead end jobs, come home and treat their family like crap. Then they wonder why I am so blessed. I am true to myself and if you are true to yourself, yes, you will be left out at some point but in the long run you will get whatever you want at the snap of your fingers.

i know once i"ve had a dream that my little cousin my moms favourite neice was in the hospital could that have been reality i didnt know but when i saw that she was dieing i woke up called told them to give her milk it worked

ever gamble before or practical doesn't have to be practical unless the dream is reality only then I would not have to take the PACE bus to her heart

I don't think your dreams should ever be in a bubble. Half the fun of having dreams is trying to reach them. Surely life is not fair to all of us, that's life, but all is not lost for those of us less fortunate, for it is we that can see the true beauty of what life truly is.
