Sleep verses Drugs...

I didn't write last night because I was still sleepy from a medication I had taken 24 hours earlier. It was a long day trying to function and yet feel like at any minute, I could go to sleep. My tongue felt thick, my head felt weird and all my reaction times were very delayed (hence why I didn't drive). I didn't like the feeling at all. I did however sleep that night, 7 solid hours and that felt good but... I never could quite wake up. I did not take any more of the medicine last night, because I thought my dosage was too high and I went to bed, confident that I would sleep through the night. That was wishful thinking...I was awake at 10:30pm,1:00am, 2:00am, 4:00am and then 8:00am.  Yikes, I can't keep going on like this. It has discouraged me to say the least. I do not want to take any medications to sleep, but I just can't go on like this with NO sleep either. It makes me want to scream! I am sooooo tired!!!!!

I found this poem about TIME, I need to remember positive things when I feel like this! Good night dear friends!

Take Time
by Author Unknown

TAKE TIME to think;
it is the source of power.
TAKE TIME to read;
it is the foundation of wisdom.
TAKE TIME to play;
it is the secret of staying young.
TAKE TIME to be quiet;
it is the moment to seek God.
TAKE TIME to be aware;
it is the opportunity to help others.
TAKE TIME to love and be loved;
it is God's greatest gift.
TAKE TIME to laugh;
it is the music of the soul.
TAKE TIME to be friendly;
it is the road to happiness.
TAKE TIME to dream;
it is what the future is made of.
TAKE TIME to pray;
it is the greatest power on earth.

"If a man had as many ideas during the day as he does when he has insomnia, he'd make a fortune."  ~Griff Niblack
