Started on the new meds last night. Started feeling the effects after about forty minutes and went to bed then. Still a while until I fell asleep (I would say over half an hour, but not by much), and it was rather uncomfortable. Strange feeling throughout my body, especially in the head. These things are always hard to describe, but I think my immune system was trying to fight it off. I got really drowsy and my body felt so heavy I couldn't even use my phone. The most alarming part was that it felt like my airways were closing up and breathing became difficult.
So I slept, with dreams more vivid than usual (but nothing noteworthy - just that I enjoyed dreaming those dreams). Woke up at least once at stupid o'clock (around 3:30 I think - at that point I did manage to glance at my phone) and one more time at ye gods it's early (6:something) and always dead tired. I didn't get out of bed until around 14:30, when I had been awake for a while, and finally managed to manifest enough willpower to drag myself out of bed.
One effect that concerned me was apathy. I didn't want to get out of bed because I had no reason to. The only reason I eventually got out of bed was because I needed to pee. After 15 hours, that tends to happen.
I will be trying it again tonight, and this time I'll be using one of those (anti-snoring) nose strips that make it easier to breathe. I just don't want to go to bed now, I've barely been up for more than eight hours.
I also don't have a reason to get out of bed tomorrow. There's nothing. If I had cats, I'd get up to scoop their litterboxes, but this morning..
I need things to look forward to in my day to day life.
