I have been having a lot of problems sleeping these past several days. I have come to a conclusion on why my anxiety has increased out of the blue and my sleeping has gotten worse. I have been off all medications for awhile now, I bet they are finally starting to clear my system, leaving me with just the one medication (Celexa) that I take daily. I have been needing to take my prn Ativian every night just to calm down. Thursday night was pretty bad, I was up until after 1am having a panic attack, but last night was the worst, I was up until 3 am. I had so much energy that I started cleaning the kitchen like crazy at 2 in the morning. I got up before 10am and made sure to go out and do 3 miles, I didn’t run as much of it as I had wanted to because I was so tired. I ran a good part of the first mile and a half but ended up walking the other mile and half back. I was literally running on empty. Now I am having a hard time staying awake. I know I need to stay awake until at least until 9p or I will end up having a lot of trouble tonight. I am glad Patrick will be home from work in an hour, it helps when he is home to stay awake. Right now my only company is a sleeping cat.
This week is my last full week of work off because heading back to work. I am working two weeks of summer school starting the 6th, then I have two full days of trainings/meetings, and then a few more days off. Then on the 28th school starts and I head back to work until June. I am at a new elementary school this year since my school that I was at last year closed. I am sad that I won’t have the same children. I actually ran into a student from last year today and it reminded me that he won’t be in my care this year. I am looking forward to this new school, I have been told that the principal and secretary are very nice and that the school is in a new building and it has air conditioning which is an improvement since the last two school years. Good back to work will be good for me, I like being busy and having structure.
