Why is it so cold?

It's winter.  I get that.  But December was so unusually cold that I didn't expect these single digit temps to just keep coming.  I misspelled 5 words in that last sentence.  Tells you how tired I am.  And portends a very Zombie-like day.  As in.....Dazed and onfused.  I only slept 1.5 hours last night.  Woke up coughing after sleeping that amount of time and while I got the cough under control, I kept trying to decide if I should go back to bed for another few hours or would I feel worse.  I leave in 2 hours for group so it's too late now.  Not to worry.  It's only a half hour drive and I should be able to stay awake at least that long.

I think my Welbrutrin may finally be kicking in.  Smoking doesnt't seem so appealing now.  I am on 3 days a week at group now.  Has something to do with insurance.  That's fine.  We seem to have a "full boat tright now.

Today I was anxious all morning-rare for me.  Then depressed all afternoon and then fine at nght.  I've been told I am rapid cycling.  And they said that was because I go from 60 - 0 with each day bringing a different emotional level.   I don't see that.  Ususally I wake up in whatever mood and it sets the stage for the rest of the day..  then the following day I could feel just the opposite.  This is what they are calling rapid-cycling.

Nothing else here for now but I imagine that it won't be lomg before I become completely incoherent.  Less than 2 hours sleep can't

I've been sleeping for about 2 hours a night for the last fortnight, its no fun at all. Last night I slept for 6 hours and I feel like a different person. Hope things improve for you soon.

Oh, dear. I could not function on that little sleep. I would end up being a total basket case in about two or three nights.

As for the cold weather, its a "gift" from us Canadians. We like to share with our friends and neighbours. Besides, if you're feeling cold, toss another dog on the bed at night. Better than an extra blanket. (We know about these things in Canada.)

Blessings and lots of Bear hugs!
