When I do it, I do it ginormous.

Yep, it's true.  I’m not one to just do things half way around here.  Same goes for my health or sanity.  If you can call me sane that is.  Lately I’ve been tired and just want to sleep all the time.  I can sleep nine hours at night and then take a three hour nap and still feel utterly exhausted.  I thought it may be related to the weather change with Fall/Winter knocking on the door and it getting dark so early.

Then I thought it could be my medication for my migraines.  I take a blood pressure medication to help control them and it has been a miracle for me.  I take it twice a day and no migraines.  Only catch is that I already have low blood pressure and I’m taking a medication to lower my blood pressure.  I thought that all this lowering was making me so sleepy so I’ve been weaning myself off of the medication.  Slowly.  I’ve gone from taking two a day to only one, half in the morning and half in the afternoon.  Tomorrow I go to one half in the morning for about four days then I stop taking it all together.

While I was at it I thought I would wean myself off of one of my anxiety medications, I take two, that could be making me sleepy.  I don’t know if any of you take Xanax but I had to go back on it a few months ago when I perhaps found myself in a very depressed state for no obvious reason.  I was taking three a day and then I went to two a day and now I’m down to one a day, half in the morning and half in the afternoon.  This week I will cut it back to only a half then stop taking it all together. 

Wow, my body may be an emotional wreck by the time I’ve weaned myself off of my medications but I hope that in time I will feel pretty good without wanting to sleep 23 hours of the day.

Wish me luck.  xoxox
