Today has been kinda tough.
As most of you know, I've been weaning from a really tough prescription.
I've reached the point where I'm on the lowest possible dose every other day.
But I decided it's time to cut it out completely. Today was day three without a dose. It hasn't been too terribly bad. But I can't figure out if it was the lack of sun or the lack of medication. Because I know how the lack of sun affects me (it makes me tired, cranky and miserable!). The forecast tomorrow calls for lots of sun - so we'll see what happens. I figure if I can make it through this weekend I'll be fine (although from what I've read - you can have withdrawal symptoms for up to two weeks!!!! Yeah - but this stuff is "safe" :snicker, snicker:)
Yes, I've had a few "jolts" to the brain - but otherwise I've been operating with that "underwater feeling" for most of the day - with a few moments of total clarity. I even had to have a nap (which I NEVER do - and wasn't really a nap as I never actually slept and I'm still tired and it's not even 7:00 pm).
I did get some Christmas shopping done (yay!) and some decorating done (yay!). My Christmas cards and invites went out on Wednesday (yay) - you all know how I was stressing over that! So some progress is being made in this area at least (the rest of the house? Not so much. Laundry - forget about it! At this point in the game - these are the least of my worries).
I'm counting down to my vacation (only 11 more days and then I'm off for the remainder of the year!! Am I gloating? Hell yeah!). After going over my vacation schedule for the year I can see why I'm in such a rush for it. I've only had minimal time off - one week when my girlfriend from Texas came to visit (I LOVE HER!! She needs to move here! You must all innundate here with pleas to move here. I will never be whole until she's near). And one week when my dad was ill (not so much a vacation that one).
But, on the whole? It's been a pretty good day. (Yes, I'm trying to focus on the highlights here!)
Now that I have spouted absolute drivel to you (which is completely un-interesting, I know) - I'm off. I simply must go to sleep (but it's finally 7:00 pm - and it's completely dark so it must be okay!)
