More ssleep…


sleep-197718_640So, 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!


About pickleclub1971

I'm a single mom of 2: a Southern CA native, who transplanted to Utah 4 years ago. I have one 18 year old who is off to the Ivy League, and one 14 year old who is in high school. I served an LDS Mission to Southern France and I’ve also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Idaho, Northern Arizona, and New Hampshire. I love 80’s music, classical music, choral music, playing the piano, singing, speaking what French I still remember, and talking about history and music with whomever will listen. I love that my kids are better at math than I was at their age. (But they still get frequent historical references from me…anyone familiar with Ducky from NCIS? He’s that kind of medical examiner, I’m that kind of mom.) My kids also think I know all the lyrics to all the songs from the 80’s, mainly because I’m good at making them up and faking it when I don’t know. Sometimes they catch me. I’m currently disabled with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I want to get better (of course) and be an advocate for trauma survivors and others with mental illnesses. I like people in general. I suffer from the delusion that I can make everyone my friend, but of course that isn’t possible: but I still believe that the world can be a better place.
