Well it's here and the fight has begun. Weekends are so tough. I've already been knocked down once today, but will try my hardest not to let the sadness overtake me. One great thing is that I see the dr tomorrow. I will explain how weekends really take me down.

The books I am reading are helping. I read in small sections because I see myself and it saddens me, reading and crying. But, the book is helping me to understand some things. Trying to focus on self so that I can get better in various areas of my life.

Trying to identify positives and also recognizing progress in my healing. I went a whole week with no negative thoughts. That's progress. I would be so anxious when driving my son somewhere. I wanted to stay in control because I didn't want to have an accident while he was in the car.( a lot of my negative thoughts occur in the car or involve the car). So glad that they have subsided.

Let's hope for a HAPPY weekend yeah yeah

Maggirrrrrr if I don't sleep

stillme, on weekends, while dtr does her socail butterfly, it's easy to getlonely. I'm lucky-I am comfortable in my own skin and need time off to be alone. I find a journal is good, but don't forget the good things too, smell of grass, giggles of children...fall leaves

The friving thing zI used to get and still do if surrounded by trucks on higheay ot a logger truck in front-I guess I'm ready for bed-look at my tyoing

Bye bye

what time do you take it maggie? as this can be a reason.

do you take any other meds before bed? and coffee? this can be a reason too.

do you follow a pattern before bed. (known as sleep hygeine.)

always try to go back to sleep asap, otherwise your body will think it is wake up time if you start moving about.

let me know. luv 2 ya, jamie

I have excellent sleep hygiene since it is one of ,y obsessions-lol. Same time, dark room , cool with ceiling fan, 600 thread sheets(my splurge and try to read to sleep instead of tv////no I don;t exercixe before bed, or breakfast lunch or dinner either (teeny joke).

I guess stress...I reconncected w/ high school friend (were very tight). He and his wife want to come down for 4 days!!! I don't have the energy for 4 days, mayve 2!!! 3 days later my sis comed from NY buit I don't have to act all hostessy with her, `y'kmow just alot ofn my plate and I'm sure I'll Manage

Going back to slreep was impossiblr. Usually it;s easy with seroquel. Thans for advice mate
