No Wonder!!

My mind has been elsewhere lately with this, that, and the other.

So, yeah, I’ve been a bit tired lately. But I mean really tired. I’ve found myself having to leave yard sale preps to take a nap for a couple hours. And as soon as I got off work on Thursdays I go home and go to bed for the night. Three hour naps during the day. Then I get up and have no energy!

You might say, as I have “Boy all this change is affecting you!” and yes it is to be expected to some degree, but take me out completely? Hmm something’s wrong here.

I do take prescribed medication for my depression, anxieties, insomnia and such. It’s such a common part of my day, just like brushing my teeth and checking my email, so I don’t pay too much attention to it.

My day: Grab the bottles, one of these, one of those, this one, that one and Diet Coke to wash it down. Proceed with day. At night I take one here and one there and I’m off to sleep. Repeat.

Yesterday I decided to slow down a bit as I ‘popped my pills’ and look at each bottle as I took out the little happy tablets.

OH MY GOSH! I’ve been sabotaging myself!

One of the pills I take at night is to help me sleep at night. It tends to give me a little ‘hang over’ affect the next day so I ALWAYS take a quarter of the recommended dose. A QUARTER. I found out today that in addition to taking a quarter of said medicine at night, I’ve been taking a FULL dose when I get up for the day – for the last two weeks! NO WONDER I’M TIRED!!

I feel so dumb and relieved all at the same time. I thought there was something really wrong with me since I was getting plenty, no a gazillion hours of sleep and I was still wiped out! Why did it take me so long to figure it out??

Stay tuned, I have some FUN, FUN, FUN posts coming!!!
This picture is a vague clue!

I think all the necessary prescriptions we have to take just get overwhelming sometimes. Glad you solved that problem though. Take care and have a wonderful day!
