Sleeping ... I have been on AD for so long I have forgotten what it would be like to be able to sleep "norally." What I wouldn't give to be able to come home at night and go to bed, then wake up in the morning refreshed instead of tired as I do. I don't sleep though the night like I want too. I want up several times. Yes, I have been taking something to sleep but I still wake up, its frustrating.
Morning are the worst. I wake up agitated and nausiated. Its not a good way to start the day.
At present I am weinging off of Effexor and not having much fun. Today has not been a good day. Then again, the past week has not been that great. I am tired of being tired. I am tired of the tension that I have been feeling. I know that getting of the AD is the right thing to do. I wish I had a better support system to do so.
I am trying to look at the bright side of things, like today, Easter, and all that it means. Happy Easter.
