My meds make me sleep too much. It is definitely a side effect. As an already sleepy person, this makes it eleven times worse. I take three to five-hour naps. I’m not sure that is even a nap. Naps are supposed to be an hour or so maybe two. Because of this, I don’t sleep at night. I stay up to two, three in the morning playing video games, watching tv and listening to music. All these things make me happy. I have fun at night. I am a night owl.
Now there are ways to stay up during the day, but I feel at peace when I’m sleeping. I also have cool dreams. Sometimes they are a little freaky but they are still fun to think about in the morning or better yet in the afternoon when I wake up.
Most would think that waking up in the afternoon is horrible, but when you’re not a morning person it means nothing. But the problem is that I take my meds later in the day and make myself sleepy and create a pattern that causes my sleeping habits to be horrendous. But it’s a small price to pay to keep me sane. I’m never been happier.
