Yes, this is very common (you're not really going crazy - it's just withdrawal).  There will probably be extreme ups and downs, known as windows and waves, which eventually even out as you heal.

Pink, it`s all Windows and Waves I can go Pedal to the Metal some days then in the Swamp the next day ! No rhyme or reason and IMHO not a lot you can do to avoid it other then common sense such as trying to avoid extra stress and maybe some dietary which I have not even bothered with !  So yes it`s normal if you can call this ordeal normal . Be well ~CD

Normal. Go with what your body wants, it is your best guide. On hype days, I ride my bike 25 miles, on moderate days 15, on bed days I do yoga and floor work, maybe a bit of a bike ride on my elliptical bike in the house, sometimes  only 15 minutes, and I'm wiped, I go to bed for the day with my kindle after that.  Having a hype day, and I'm snowed in, rode my indoor elliptical bike 25 miles. Then did an hour of yoga and floor exercises. Then danced for an hour.  Then started on the house. I am finally slowing down. 3 days ago I couldn't get out of bed, and read all day.

 

We actually can come off as bi-polar during wd emotionally, very common. Suicidal one day, wanting to explore the Amazon 3 days later. We cry easy, and are hyper sensitive. A picture of A Syrian child will send me into a crying jag.

 

I just ride it all out, expect to never know where I will be at, and make the most of each day, depending on what's happening with my cns, and how it is affecting me.

 

I have a routine, that really helps, you might try it. I exercise every morning, read every evening, and make sure I keep in touch with at least 3 people every day, via text, a call, whatever. I think a routine helps add some stability to the variables we live with everyday in our experience of being us.
