That Didn’t Work So Well

As I said last night, I doubled up on my sleep med so I could just be out of it for a while. It backfired on me. Apparently when you do that it has two real effects…

  1. I became incredibly groggy to the point I could literally not even move
  2. I had such increased anxiety, sleep was impossible, I was fidgeting like a boss!

I think that by the time it hit 10 or so I finally achieved sleep. I awoke around 7:30 and still groggy with a heavy fog in my brain.

Alrighty then, I wont be attempting that again in the near future.

There must be a secret for the disconnect that is actually revitalizing, I don’t know, maybe not.

So today I have a full agenda, lots of calls to make. Schedule a colonoscopy screening, Audiologist for ringing in my ears, set up an initial appointment with my third therapist, contact the orthopedic surgeon for a followup for trigger finger, and my PCP for thyroid med adjustment that is out of whack.

Fun day, I hope yours is as well.

  1. For a long time I struggled with not being able to shut down in order to find sleep. A lot of it was because of drug addiction. Mind you I am 4 and a half years clean now. When coming off the drugs I experienced an anxiety so overwhelming I hardly ever slept. I had to learn how to talk myself down from the peak. I had to literally refuse to let me mind think of anything other than sleep. It’s a mental game we play with ourselves. The mind is such a powerful thing and some times you have to talk it into shutting down. Kind of like refusing to listen to yourself if that makes any sense
