yup, everything I have read and everyone I have talked to says this is all normal. Time will heal and time will make things get better. I see things getting better already but I'm very impatient!!!! I need instant gratification
Anyhow, with that said, I'm a million times better today than I was yesterday. Woke up once to go to the bathroom at 5:30 am and that's it. Even that I could have probably slept thru and made it to the morning.
Don't let me scare you, this is the best decision I made for my life and for my family. No meds at all.
