Oof.

So, I've officially turned into the kind of person who is supposed to take a Xanax and calm down. I've actually been using Xanax for a couple of weeks already, as-needed to deal with days when the anxiety is particularly bad, or when I know I have to do something that's going to give me trouble. Yesterday, the doc switched me from the extended release formula (originally, I was supposed to be taking the Xanax every day, but I didn't like the groggy feeling it gave me) to the regular one and I'm supposed to use it as a sleep aid: take it before bed to shut up the anxiety loop my brain gets into so I can fall asleep faster. Took it at 11 last night, went to bed at midnight without the brain chatter (it was lovely), but then I woke up at 3-4am (about when the meds would have worn off) and had trouble falling back to sleep. I let myself sleep a little later to compensate (since I'm not really time-sensitive today) and called the doc to give him the heads up. I've no way of knowing if it was just my brain being dumb or if it was the meds, but I'm going to try again tonight and if it happens again tonight we'll need to reevaluate.

(We also haven't really dealt with the problem of the hormone-induced CRAZY I get right before my period, but I think we're focusing on getting me through the day-to-day first. I'm hesitantly optimistic, since the last few weeks have been pretty good, actually, but we'll see how it goes.)

Today is going to be a spammy day, I suspect. Be warned!

I'm glad to hear the Xanax seems to be helpful.

Well, it does and it doesn't. Unfortunately, this isn't a situation where I can just take a pill and it will be all better.
