Mood Watch - 32

Little or no change since the last Mood Watch post, except that I am back on a sleep schedule that runs from about 10-11 p.m. to 6-7 a.m.

Mood Watch - 31

Since my last Mood Watch post I’ve been feeling about as “normal” as I can imagine. Oddly enough, that’s been more or less despite new circumstances that might reasonably be expected to make me feel anxious or depressed. On the other hand, some of them have put me under increased pressure and even created a sort of crisis mode. I usually do well in such situations, probably because they characterized my early life. It’s when things are okay that I tend not to do as well.

I’m sleeping fine: getting roughly 6-7 hours per night. Although I’m generally a night owl, in recent days I’ve conked out around 7 p.m. and got up around 2 a.m. It’s actually almost an optimum schedule because I get a lot accomplished between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.

I still get emails from people in trouble, most recently from a grad student who struggled last quarter with bipolar disorder and another individual who has recently been diagnosed with the disorder and feels a little freaked out by it. I get a lot of satisfaction out of being able to help.
