Today is Sunday and I have not taken my brain meds since Thursday morning. Although I’ve gone up to five days without once over the years, I seem bothered this time more than other days.
Sleeping is tough. Dreams go crazy and a bit scary when I fall asleep. Relative humidity is under 20% at night, and my bed has bugs everywhere. I have developed pretty severe allergies to them and they cause itches and hives.
On Friday I didn’t sleep at all. Yesterday the area got hit by a massive lake effect snowfall that left so much snow, the pharmacy didn’t open. Sadly I didn’t know this until after I made the trek all the way there.
The roads were unplowed. There were no sidewalks. Because of the bed allergy, my breathing was strained before I left the house and the cold dry weather made it worse. By the time I made it to the pharmacy, I was exhausted and having a hard time.
I was looking forward to sitting down on the bench inside the pharmacy. Because it was not open, my only option was to curse under my short breath, turn around and walk back home.
According to my phone it’s only about 2,000 steps each way, but it felt like miles.
Today I’ve been moody. I cried, I laughed, I yelled. I slept, and watched TV. I blogged.
I know it will get worse later today and I hope I can renew the script tomorrow. I hate feeling 4 different ways in a day.
