Hello mgtman, I am nini53 and I have been going thru the same type of problem, for the last 2-3 months I have barely made it to the month mark. First I think you need to know, there is no judgement here, I am not sure but, well I looked and you have been a member for a while, I joined in March of 2011, and one of the first things I noticed was the lack of anyone being judgemental.
Dont we go thru enough without having to worry about one of our own judging? I also dont know if you can take this but Valerian Root is a natural narcotic type of medicine, no prescription needed, where I am it is sold in most drug stores, CVS, Walgreens, etc. just look in the homeopathic meds and you should find it there.
You know what, as I wrote that I realized I should have started taking it myself when I see I am beginning to get to those last ten days. I will be getting an increase in my meds starting in Sept., this was my own bright idea, I probably could have gotten an increase in the spring, but nooooo, I know everything, I can make it until Sept. Sometimes I wonder about myself.
Sorry, there I go again, I am so sorry, that was so selfish. If you can, try the Valerian Root, it comes in pill form, and liquid, (I would opt for the pills, the taste is nasty).
Please take care of yourself, and good luck.
