Beginning of Feeling Better



Dear Friends of DD,

I would like to let you all know that I am feeling better today. I see that the medication is beginning to work now. I actually got eight hours of sleep with the exception of getting up twice in the night to run to the bathroom and wondering what time it was. I had fallen asleep watching Pepper Ann on Toon Disney and remembering waking up to the beginning of Sabrina the Animated Series, and turned off my television. It was lightning and thundering out doors but it did not keep me awake and anxious at all. I remember waking up at 5 a.m. and going back to sleep and then awaking up at 6:15 a.m. when my alarm went off. I even felt more awake at that time than the days before I experienced so I can tell that the medication Prozac is doing its job and is beginning to do the trick. I am happy for a change. Yesterday was a little complicated but I did not worry too much. I felt sick when I saw food but that seemed to calm down after I ate something. Anyway, I am feeling better. Today I am at school, just about time to go to class, getting an assignment printed for Oral Communications and my speech typed out and ready to go for next Wednesday. I feel I am still on top of things and I have five days of school left before the semester is over. The past few weeks have been rough emotionally but I am still here and that counts for a lot and that is all that matters. I am happy to get through the obstacles I have gone through even though it took some paintaking steps to get here. More later…
