Customer Question

I have bipolar disorder,excessive daytime sleepiness,and chronic nocturnal myoclonus or periodic limb movement disorder and am always asleep. My question concerns my complete inability to achieve any mental imagery, however hard I try to. I practice hard daily as I have for about 10 years now,and Can still not evoke a face or a place, or an object ever. I do not dream pictures either. I have an appalling short term memory, and take forever to read or write anything,I often write gobbledygook I don't know where it comes from, and although I can read words well and fast, I have to keep repeating the reading because a translator in my head goes missing and don't understand the words. I was of above average IQ prior to my illnesses. Noone has yet explained the confusing later symptoms, I'm going back to sleep as usual now. Hope you can shed some light on my direction, faithfully XXXXX XXXXXXX.
