For the past seven years I have had terrible sleep problems. This has meant that I’ve been exhausted pretty much all of the time and made education and work very difficult. A few days ago I went to my GP, who said he thought it was probably a circadian rhythm disorder and gave me a prescription.
I am sleeping normally. I woke up this morning before 8am and I didn’t feel tired or want to go back to sleep. That hasn’t happened since before I was a teenager. I feel suddenly alive and energetic, I’m able to concentrate in a way that hasn’t been possible for years. Life is suddenly incredibly exciting and I’m so very grateful to my gods and ancestors for getting me to this point. It feels like the world is opening up ahead of me and finally I can start living.
