rach_peck : She is too cute!! It's truly amazing how helpful a 5 year old can be!

I'm going to be completely honest here. I have insomnia because of the medications I'm taking which all have different side effects. This journey has been hard because I'm either too depressed or too happy because of the medicine I'm on has different side effects. It's all about figuring out the right medicine for me which has been a very loooooong process. I didn't sleep a wink last night because the new medicine I'm trying has a side effect of insomnia. But I feel great, like I could run a marathon and I'm extremely happy right now which is why I'm posting a picture of my nails because I never paint my nails but when you don't sleep its amazing what you can accomplish. Anyways, I'm grateful that I'm very in tune with my body and really know how these drugs are effecting me. Do I like feeling extremely happy? Of course! But is that the medicine or the fact that I'm so happy I'm not sleeping all day. Because did you know one of the signs of someone going manic is extreme happiness and talking a lot and having lots of energy. So am I manic or am I me again? It's all about finding myself again. I know this is long and I'll write a blogpost soon. Basically what I'm trying to say is this whole experience is teaching me to not be judge mental whatsoever. I know exactly why people do drugs now. I hate taking medicine and I'm so grateful that I can recognize that. So long story short don't do drugs, unless you have to because you went psychotic. πŸ˜‚ (you have to laugh or cry about this whole thing) #imnotcrazyipromise

andrealbaker : @acrossmystory love you!! I can't wait until the finale!
acrossmystory : Haha seriously I have no idea who she will choose! I wish I could watch it with u!
staygoldautumn : I had never even heard of this before and I'm so glad you are writing about it. I can't imagine how difficult this has been for your family or scary for you to have these hallucinations. I hope they are able to find medications that get you to feeling back to normal soon!
sandrapdavis : So sorry to hear about your struggles. Insomnia really is The Worst! I had postpartum depression 21 years ago after my son was born & it changed me in so many ways--good & bad. Lmk if you need a listening ear, empathy, or support. You are doing amazing! β™‘β™‘β™‘
