    Is it normal?

    Is it normal to feel like you're in a bubble everyday and you're just waiting for the bubble to pop to feel like you're living a normal life like everyone else? I sleep for 12 hours every night and still can sleep more after I wake up. I don't know if I'm being lazy or if I'm experiencing a depression or a sedation effect from my medication, Invega Sustenna. I'm having a hard time staying awake and feel like I'm living a normal existence. Don't people do more with their days when they wake up? Not just wake up to go to sleep again? I'm trying to remember what I used to do before I fell into 2 manic episodes and was hospitalized. I used to do Yoga, go for walks, cook and clean, write, take photos. Now all I do is sleep. What would you do if you were in my position? Talk to the doctor about medication? See a Psychologist?

    Hi FriedEgg. I would start with my doctor. Sometimes it's hard to sort out what is about a need for medication tweaks and/or what is a downward shift in mood.

          Hello FriedEgg. Many medications make it difficult to get up in the morning.. You could try taking your evening medication @7pm. You also find out if the med can be split. When I was on heavy doses of serequel I found it easier taking the medication two times a day, rather than once. You should also talk with your doc about dosage. Good Luck and Take Care. paul m

            It's the monthly shot of Invega Sustenna that I receive, no pills. I just feel that I'm not in reality.
