It’s been a while and it’s almost over…

After my really bad weekend back in May, there just hasn’t been much to report.  There have been a few bouts of twitchies, but they are definitely few and far between.  Episodes Monday and Tuesday night about two weeks ago, but they were relatively mild.  Really nothing to report.  Which is great!

Until this week of course, and that wasn’t twitchies, it was back to “oh good, it’s 3 a.m. and I’m wide awake!”  Actually, I’m splitting the difference there, Tuesday night was 3:30 a.m. and Wednesday night it was 2:30 a.m.  But there was no slipping calmly back into sleep.  It was hours of tossing and turning and getting up and walking around.  Thank god last night was okay.  Man, I really don’t want to go back to no sleep, that would be cruel and unusual punishment.

So here it is, Friday the 4th of July (Happy Independence Day for our American friends), the project comes to an end next Wednesday with an day of filming and my last visit with Dr. Bryce and I’m worried.  During this project, I’ve been taking numerous supplements (see previous posts) as well as things like Liquid Melatonin.  Fortunately the melatonin isn’t expensive but the supplements are, so when the TV show stops paying for them, I stop taking them.   Naturally, I have concerns that I’m going to go right back to where I started: sleepless nights, uncontrollable legs.  My gastro-intestinal system has long since settled back into it’s old routine, and that’s while still on the supplements so what the heck will happen without them?

Good questions for Dr. Bryce next week.
