Question Am I Normal?

I wake up in the morning and take pills to make my day a little brighter. They are prescribed to me so I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong. I make breakfast for my 10 month old and feed him. Then I eat. I do my dishes and sit down in front of the TV with my son by my side. On some busy days I take him to day care. Busy days I do my running around. Non busy days I run around the house after him.

I am a rapid cycler, I cycle through the day. My moods can change with the blink of an eye. I go from to or from to like no bodys business. My thoughts race all the time. I feel trapped in the middle of them. Like they are swarming around me and I can only drift to the bottom, trying to grow gills.

I wasn't always like this. When I was little I remember being different.

Help Me

Re: Am I Normal?

Hi there MLW

"...we are normal, everyone else is WIERD..."

Serious Mode: For a 'rapid cycler' sound very normal. Suggest a re think on the meds with your Doc, perhaps you need a minor adjustment.

Take care, Hedge.

Re: Am I Normal?

I am a rapid cycler and this is normal for me. My meds make it way less severe though. I agree with Hedge about trying new meds.
