not just me

For the past few days, I have had the wobbles in the morning. Sometimes, I go back to bed for a couple of hours, and everything is fine. I have also been taking two Bonamine tablets to settle things. The ENT doctor suggested these tablets instead of lorazapam. If I remember correctly (and I don't always), the active ingredient in Bonamine is meclizine.

The wobbles could be caused by a tossing-and-turning sleep. They could also be caused by stress...which could also cause the poor sleep.

Lately, I have been reminded that my troubles aren't just my own. Just because I can walk around in a, "again? really? more?", or "this is an unbelievable but manageable situation", and don't forget, "I'm ok. Well not ok, but ok" frame of mind, does not mean that those close to me are able to do the same thing. And then I become stressed when I see my loved ones stressed...

I'm going to cut it short right here, because you get the picture.

I take Imipramine for the tossing/turning. Some of my meds can definitely bring on those wobblies though...Baclofen, in particular. Sometimes we have to take so many different things it is a wonder we can function at all. Hang in there!

Tell Jason not to stress too much. You are both in this together. Yes he will have bad days also but just try and talk it out. Jason don't stress. It's about time I figured out how to make a comment.
