Good morning dear friends! I am up and at em at 7am not feeling particularly manic but am feeling like I shouldn’t be up this early. I am not necessarily complaining because it is a nice feeling to be out of bed, but I am curious of what is driving the waking up, aside from my cats wanting to be fed. I am not usually a morning person yet here I am writing to you and getting ready to start my day. Obviously I am not depressed! Ha! Functioning on little sleep is a symptom of mania. But I am not functioning on little sleep in real person terms, I got about 6 hours, just on Cari life terms. Anyway, I am up and starting my day, which is my day off, and I hope to get a lot accomplished. This includes a really nice blog entry and also trying to write some poetry later. I am also going to see my therapist later in the day so hopefully I will have some good things to write about, she always gets my ideas stirring. So enjoy your morning friends and look for me later in the day when my brain begins to function a little better.
