I didn’t sleep all that well last night. I got up with J when she was getting ready for work, had breakfast, and went back to bed. Again, I had trouble falling back asleep. After a while I got up and wandered around a bit, then went back to bed and slept for a while.
My Dr W appointment went pretty well. I’m now on a lower lorazepam and quetiapine dosage at bed time – 1mg (down from 2) and 300mg (down from 450), respectively. Being able to lower my medications makes me happy and helps remind me that I’m getting better.
This evening, though, wasn’t so great. We went to Home Depot to pick up some boards and chicken wire to build the garden and there was just so much noise it really unsettled me and caused me to start panicking. The forklift, in particular, spent almost all of our time there with the reverse beepers going and the driver honking the horn every two seconds. It was so close and so loud, I just couldn’t get it out of my head. J offered to go home then but we were so close to getting everything we needed that I decided to tough it out.
So now I’m feeling pretty rough. Somewhere around a four and a half. I hope I wake up in a better mood tomorrow.
