It's Like Waking Up From a Dream
Sometimes I do ok. I can focus alright, and get things done. But other times, it constantly feels like when you wake up, and can't quite remember your dream.
Why am I here?
I'll be outside, and realize I need to pee. So I go into the house, and then I feel confused, adrift. Why am I here? Something important... So I do a quick walk around the house, looking for what the reason might be (while doing the potty jig). Oh! The dishes need to be done! That must be it. So I open the dishwasher and it's already got dishes in it, clean ones. Better put those away.
What am I doing?
I open the cupboard. What am I doing? Why did I open this? Oh! I must be grabbing a mug for water!
So I grab one and fill it. But ... Why wouldn't I just use my water bottle? Pfft of course! I must be making tea.
I stick it in the microwave. Damn I gotta pee. I walk to the bathroom and forget why. The bathroom is messy. I should Windex the mirror.
But the Windex is in with the car stuff because I washed my car yesterday. I go to look for it, but when I get to the carport, I don't remember what I'm looking for, or why.
I scan the carport, it had to be something important...
How important is following a daily routine for managing your narcolepsy?
