These days I have strong feeling about many things and today I feel very happy about sleeping through the night. It seems like such a small thing, and I suppose it is, but for me it is almost like winning the lottery. I haven’t slept through the night for several months. I stopped using medication because of the side effects and or expense. The way things have been going I may have to go back to medication, but last night I slept without it. So I can sleep on my own.
I feel so much better today. Just like I do with depression, I assume that there is something wrong with me other than just being exhausted. You know, when a person doesn’t sleep well it really affects all of the body’s functions. I have been gaining weight because of eating at night to comfort myself and from being too tired to do much during the day. Also, I feel as if I am living in a dream; everything I see or think about has fuzzy soft edges and I cannot remember what I need to. But I never figured this out until I got a night of adequate sleep.
