Poll: Are your mornings bad?


#1

I wake up and feel like I both have a hangover and that I’ve been punched in the head. This hangover lasts about 5 hours.

I spoke to my psychiatrist about it and we increased my abilify to 15mg. This seemed to help for a while but now it’s business as usual.

Just wondering how many others have bad mornings.

  • Have bad mornings
  • Don’t have bad mornings

When I wake up I move/walk slow as a zombie :zombie: “Coffee, more coffee” I also have bad mornings


#3

Generally mornings are my best time,

I’m most productive and have less symptoms.


#4

I feel better after I’ve just woken up.


#5

If I’m allowed time to myself to sit and sip tea or coffee and listen to my music and come on sz.com or facebook and just wake up slowly I enjoy my mornings. If I have to jump up and get ready and be expected to think and function it’s bad, very bad. So I didn’t no how to answer the poll.


#6

I agree with @leaf. When I drink my morning coffee and have some alone time before my daughter wakes up I’m good. When she wakes up when I do I have a hard time jumping straight into mom mode.


#7

They are. I never feel well rested, and my symptoms are the strongest. Also, I’m going through ativan withdrawal right now so it’s even worse.


#8

If I leave the blinds open over night, I feel better when I wake up than if I were to keep them closed. Also more productive, ect.


#9

I am super tired in the mornings. It takes me forever to wake up, and I won’t be able to focus or stay awake without either coffee or having to do a bunch of stuff that requires me to keep active. I feel drowsy and sluggish for a few hours after I’ve woken up.


#10

I’m in-between. I used to love mornings when I had my jobs, it was time to be alone and enjoy my coffee and music. Now, since I do nothing all day, I spend my mornings just dreading the boring day ahead.


#11

I wake up everyday before 7 AM to change my grandfather’s diaper. So I have to have a good morning. I get my caffeine and a few cigarettes in after I take my medication and I’m good to go for a few hours. There are no vacations and no breaks with me. It’s a 365 day a year job.


#12

me too. This is why I sleep very early.


#13

I wake up wishing I wasn’t alive or wish I was dead and want to sleep forever. I get up, start my day like a robot, and life sort of feels fake. Exhausted from my daily symptoms but insomnia takes over and i dont fall asleep until 1am.


#14

I used to have terribly slow mornings when I used to take Latuda. But now Ive had a medication change so as long as i take ads in the mornings I can get moving and be somewhat productive.


#15

Actually, early morning is a good time for me. I love to get up around two or three o’clock and putter around my room for a few hours.


#16

I hate mornings getting out of bed feels like a death march :skull:


#17

my first emotion in the morning is “I can’t have a cigarette” and then I lie there getting angry about it…trick I learned is not to lie there but get up and pop a piece of nicotine gum…problem solved…personally I don’t like to interact in conversation until I get a good cup of coffee in me…Ange is just a babbling brook in the morning full of laughter and good vibes so it’s hard to be in a bad mood around her.
