New kind of Window


Recommended Posts

I posted about this in another thread but I think it deserves a topic of its own.

 

The past two days I have been in an entirely new kind of window. Up until yesterday I had experienced two different kinds of windows:

 

1) I just feel "better" than I normally do and am able to function on a slightly higher level.

 

2) My senses begin to awaken and the world around me starts to come alive. One time this was accompanied by a crazy high. These only last for a few hours.

 

In my latest window that hit yesterday my senses didn't come to life, but I now have motivation and energy for the first time in a long, long time.

 

Yesterday I got a ton of work done. Worked on an audio editing project until past midnight. This is HUGE because ever since my taper and even before that I have found it very, very difficult to find the motivation to do anything let alone be able to concentrate on any one thing for more than a couple of seconds.

 

It is hard to describe the way I feel sitting here right now. It's like instead of some kind of force applying downward pressure to my head I now feel like there is something that is pulling me UP. What a stark contrast to the way I have been feeling.

 

Wow. As my body begins to awaken from this zombie-like coma I have been in for the past several years I can clearly see just how messed up I was when I was on these drugs. This is very encouraging and really gives me hope that one day soon I will emerge from this a better person than I ever thought I would be.

 

Time to get back to work!

Thanks. I just can't wait for all of my senses to come back to me at the same time. That is going to be an amazing feeling!

Floridaguy..

 

I myself truely never had a window were I felt completely better..

I just felt like my head cleared and the fog lifted while my sxs were there

just not as bad..Usually a window for me in the first 6 months lasted a few hours at night just to wake to the same old Ground Hogs Day..very discourgeing..

But as time went bye and month 7 came I stood in a window that never truely closed..

You just hang in there soon you will to..

I always look forward to reading your posts Jen...thanks for continually giving us hope!

 

I have had the exact 'sort of' windows with mental clarity, or motivation, but lingering physical symptoms - just as you described.  But I have yet to have the energy you described in your last one.  Something to look forward to.  Thanks for sharing FloridaGuy!

It's as if I was carrying around a weight that was strapped to my head and now that weight has been reduced to the point where I barely feel it.

 

It's funny how it is hard to describe the way I am feeling until I start to feel better. I guess it's understandable though since I have been numbed down by the drug and the subsequent WD for over 4 years.

Just had to run over to the post office and when I got back I started feeling my senses awakening again.

 

Not as intense as last time but walking back to my place I was hit with a few different scents and each time I would perk up and my brain would immediately try to search for something to link it to. The last time this happened I was at the mall and my senses were assaulted (in a good way) bringing up memories from my past.

 

Gotta meet someone for work in a couple of hours but I think I am going to stop somewhere along the way to see this window is going to open up even further!

Isn't it a great feeling to know that you are getting closer and closer to becoming who you want to be, and regain what you have lost!
