I must have been worrying over nothing. I think the worst of it might be over. I got to sleep around 1 last night and slept until 8. When the medicine was dropped I was told not to stop cold turkey, but to cut the dose in half for 1 month and down to 1/4th for another month if the adjustment is too rough. But if this improvement lasts all week I might cut it to 1/4th next week. I'm still in worse shape than usual, but it's nothing compared to the hell that last week was.
I may not be perfect, but at least I'm not fake.
