I did get some sleep last night, though I woke up during the night and it was completely dark outside. I did manage to go back to sleep, so I’m not as exhausted as I have been feeling. My Aunt suggested that I may have mild Bi-polar disorder, as it takes me time to recover from the highs and lows I experience. I googled mild bi-polar disorder and it doesn’t exist. I looked at borderline personality disorder and that wasn’t me either. I believe that I’m just more sensitive emotionally than most people due to childhood abuse. That has been a theory of mine that addicts in general are more sensitive than the general population due to abuse and trauma in their lives, and that’s why we self-medicate to manage our painful feelings. The trick for us addicts is learning new coping skills. Carole
