One of the prescriptions for a healthy life is sleep. As a person living with Bipolar Depression I have discovered that a truly restful sleep helps to stabilize my mood. Conquering insomnia is an essential task in checking the madness of merciless mania.
When I wake and remember my dreams I know that I am achieving better health. When I wake with hardened desires I know that the potential for a satisfying day may be mastered. A sleepless night constrains the pleasures and inhibits the bursts of energy that we all need.
Medication is more effective for me than meditation. The psychiatric cocktail that induces a sustained sleep is an essential part of my ability to live with my dis-ease. Insomnia must end.
