Two Steps Forward

Two steps forward, one step back.. that's how my days have been. I'm trying to relax and slow down when I need to step back and not dwell on those times. If I didn't, I would get pulled down by it. I almost had that happen the other night.

Of course the times when I take the two steps forward are wonderful. I feel almost as I did months ago when things were going well. Before I had a major crash and burn and all these med changes started. I thank God during both times though because I know He knows what I need. It would be selfish to only thank Him during the good times.

The sleeping aid Trazadone is working well for me. I still don't sleep a whole straight 8 hours, but I'm up to five hours. That puts me awake in time to make coffee and breakfast for Mr. Skittles before he goes to work.. then I go back to sleep for a couple more hours.

One of the things I like about Trazadone is that I sleep soundly without tossing and turning. It works pretty fast, too. I could almost sleep in a dog bed and not care.

That's my update for now. I'll be back in a few days.
