There has been so much going on that I don't really know where to start. It has been an overwhelming couple of weeks. I have been on my meds and are really becoming more mentally sound, but my sleep has been so disturbed. It got so bad that H wouldn't let me drive anywhere in case I got into an accident. I was waking up every hour or so and sleepy so lightly.
I called the dr and she gave me a second med that was supposed to help my sleeping. It was only going to be for a short time, to reset my schedule. I could take 1-5 pills, as they are low dose. So I started on 1 and didn't sleep through the night, then the next day tried 2. I was better but still not sleeping through the night and still being groggy and a little odd during the day. I tried playing with the schedule and even went to 3 pills. H said I was completely stoned all day. So I am drinking all this caffiene trying to wake up during the day and it is having no effect. I am basically stuck on the couch incoherent.
I am off that med now and still not sleeping through the night. Thank goodness my mood is so much more stable. There is an option to try something to give me a little energy in the day. Perhaps that will allow me to tire myself out during the day and sleep better at night. If I try that path I can only do it for a month or so as I cannot be in a cycle with this new med.
I guess I am still working out all the kinks here. More later.
