When a person feels sleepy it's the body's way of letting that person know that sleep is important in order to heal. I know in your case with working 2 jobs, having 2 kids, running a house, etc. that you can't get the sleep your body is telling you to get. It's a shame that you have to work 2 jobs, I wish you had more options.
That said, I am sure it was stress that caused me to get sick in the first place. I grew up on Long Island and was always outside with all those vectors that carry lyme bacteria and never got sick (ticks, fleas, spiders, black flies, etc.). When I did get sick I had way too much stress in my life which I thought I could handle. I had to make choices to rid myself of many of the stressors which I did as scary and uncomfortable as that was.
I wish there was a way for you to lower your stressors. I am guessing that it's NOT an option for your ex to help out in any way?
The good news is that your psych symptoms have gotten better!
Hang in there and take 1 day at a time (or even 1 hour at a time) okay? This too shall pass...
12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about
Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).
I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward!
