Attention fellow Mastodonians with Bipolar Disorder, sleep disorders, and depression!
Even though we’re gaining an hour, Daylight Savings Time is notorious for triggering mania, increasing symptoms of depression, and making it significantly harder for people to hit their natural sleep rhythms. Be aware that there may be an adjustment period as you settle in to your new schedule and please be gentle with yourself as you adjust! 💜💜💜
