Well, what a week… Or few days I should say. I started the Nuvigile and Restoril and wow. That Nuvigile works, it works too well actually. I took it at 7am and come midnight I was still wide awake. I took my Restoril/Melatonin and… Nothing. I stayed up all night.
Next day, 7am, I took it again, maybe that episode of insomnia was a fluke? This time I changed all my sleeping habbits. I dimmed the lights 1 hour before bed, listened to an audio book, took Melatonin (5mg) 30 mins before bed, Shut off all but one small lamp, took a shower, kept TV off, light classical music instead. 30 minutes later I took my Restoril. Again, no sleep. 2 Days now.
Next day no Nuvigile and I got some Percocet. Took 3 to take a nap. woke up 2 hours later. I was exhausted all day long. I finally could not take it, could not keep my eyes open, I felt like throwing up, it was horrible. So I took 1 Percocet and my Restoril. Classical music? Nope, brain wouldn’t shut up. Political talk radio? Nope, got to into it. History Chanel with towel over TV to keep room dark? That helped. Finally I got some sleep! Not great sleep but sleep!
Today I feel dizzy from the double vision which has been way better, I took the tape off my glasses the other day and have been OK close up. Far away was doubled but now? Its minor, but still enough to make me dizzy and sick. I will post some examples below.
So, life is still not where I want it to be but seeing change makes me happy nonetheless. I finished 1 vile of Acthar, I don’t know what happened but there is no way I am getting 10 shots, maybe 9. Either way I hope it helps!It all just takes time, either way, even if it’s all mental, I do feel better emotionally. Must be the hope, motivation, you know, all that good stuff haha!
