Up All Night And Slept All Day!

I do this all the time. I've been up all night and it's now 6:40AM. I'm not sleepy yet! At least I did a few things while I was up (and still am) and usually I don't get anything done.

I've sorted some stuff I needed to, showered, washed my hair and trimmed it, gave myself a facial, amd whitened my teeth!! LOL I know I just did for myself but that's a big step for me. I usually just sit and do absolutely nothing, or go online, or watch TV. I know it sounds bad but I sat down a long time ago and planned on waiting there till I died. I totally gave up.

Now I'm beginning to make some progress, no matter how small, but the big thing I really have to say is that I quit sitting and waiting to die. I'm not saying I won't slip back, but I am trying to feel more positive, and accept life as it is.

I'm a long way from getting to "normal" and I guess I'll never be that, but I'm a long way to being the best I can. ADHD, depression, anger, MORE, there are things I need to deal with. I do feel I'm a little better than I was.

I found EP while sitting on my butt, around five months ago, and it has had a profound impact on my life. Of course there is good and bad  on the site, geez. put so many together and what do you expect? But I have made some wonferful friends here and a lot more ep people have helped me so much I can't count them all.

Well the sleeping all day is not going away anytime soon but I am at least willing to work on it! And I know that it might last either. But I won't be waiting to die, this I know. I love God and look forward to being with Him but it will be when He's ready, and it could be a long time! So, for now I just wanted to say that I have a long way to go but I think my mind is ready to start cooperating and I'll make the best of it while it lasts. Wish me well as I do for you!

Oh dear, bad news artsy, she has a brother Whiskers that also lives here, and the little sweeties were orphaned before weaned completely - mommy cat got out ( not here) and was killed by car,<br />
so they were fed with doll bottles. Why did I write all that? Did'nt apply at all and was just depressing! <br />
Keepers is purring and her fur is like silk! So much for sticking to my story! But thank you for admiring my" little girl" !

Thank you Artsy , that's a perfect twin of my cat Keepers!! She is right beside me with her head on edge of my laptop and looking at me with the identical ex<x>pression!! {{Hugs}}

I do too endofseptember, and while some of it may be my probs, in some ways I too prefer it. I love sunny days, but nights are more my style.

ha im used to that sleep schedule and in many ways prefer it. theres nothing wrong with being a night owl. thats probably how i'll want to stay for as long as my body can handle it

Awww, Thank you and I know for a fact you could! Encouragement feels good, especially if it's "fambly" !

Thank you for commenting, boxbell my friend! EP is a pretty good place, huh? I came last March and it has helped me so much. Lot better than a shrink!! I 've been there too! Well, I see one still but I get much more help here. {{HUGS}}
