Do you wake up excited, looking forward to all the tasks & adventures ahead?

Do you wake up feeling indifferent, just another day, not particularly excited about anything, but no problem facing the day ahead

Or do you wake up depressed, dreading another day, secretly wishing there will be a night you'd just die in your sleep?

I always lay in bed a few moments thinking about what I plan to accomplish in the day ahead. Usually I am eager for the day to unfold. There are also times of great unhappiness. Its called life.

Sooner or later, it's "Bring Main Engines on line" because it is time to face the "day" (I work graveyard) and to get moving.

Sometimes, I awake like coming out of deep sleep, unwilling to accept that it is time to work again. This week has been like that, not quite sure why I am so weary.

Other times, it is a more "welcomed" acceptance of being awake.

But.....you know what is motivating each day, if in anything else?

That I can write in my diary, decorate it with pictures, extend the many worlds if just a little bit that I can "live" in.

Not a morning person, never wake up "happy" or with a woo hoo seize the day attitude

HOWEVER, I am always grateful to be alive and do get more energetic as the day goes on.

If you are at all secretly wishing you had died in your sleep this is called "passive suicide ideation" and indicates you need to speak to a professional.

Please do that okay?

I wake up every morning thankful that I can do things on my own time, whenever I feel like it, because I'm self employed and I work alone. I'll never have to wake up to a GODDAMN ALARM CLOCK ever again. I haven't had to do that since I was in high school, and the joy of not having to never gets old. I was never a morning person. Ever.

I'm between B) and C) but closer to B) most days. Sometimes I wake up too early in a state of anxiety and can't get back to sleep then the alarm goes and I have a 'oh damn' moment (or words to that effect).

Getting up in the morning used to be a burden as I just couldn't wake up properly, so much so I couldn't eat breakfast. I was finally put on Strattera which has had a lasting effect and before that I was on dexamphetamine for several years which only lasted half the day.

I make an effort to do what makes me happy, I know it takes work to keep the awfulness at bay.
This is very true.

Pissed, both mentally and physically.
But I'm usually dry by the time I eat my waffles.
