So, after about 10 days without my sleep med, I was able to get a refill yesterday. Then I slept until 6pm this evening. I’m hoping that it’s just because my body is getting used to it again. When I first went on it, I was very sleepy 24/7 for about a week.
A friend texted me at about 7pm and wanted to know if I wanted to go to institute. At first I thought, “there’s no way…” because I was (and still am) ready to crawl back in bed, and my ability to speak is a bit hampered. Then I realized that all I had to do was get dressed and sit and listen. My friend is already used to me when I have trouble speaking, as are (what a blessing) several of my friends. I went and learned and even conversed and enjoyed myself.
Now I’m going back to bed!
