Last night I got three hours of sleep. Max. I don’t know what other people do when that happens to them, but I know for me it’s a really big deal. I tell my support network, I call my doctor and I come up with a plan on how I can actually get sleep tonight.
It feels like a crisis because it so easily could turn into one. Sleep is my biggest bipolar trigger and a lack of it can quickly lead to an episode.
To top things off I tossed and turned which was not good for my pelvic disorder. I called my psychiatrist and I’m hoping she’ll have suggestions for tonight! I can’t take most medications for sleep because I’m pregnant so I have no idea what she’ll tell me.
