I’ve decided to try and plot my journey through cold turkey to warm custard by photographing various parts of my anatomy!
Above is day one – with makeup so not all hope is lost just yet!
As always I didn’t think through the whole stopping amitriptyline yesterday as yesterday was also Methotrexate day. Methotrexate for me mainly means headaches and insomnia. And no Amitriptyline also means insomnia – good start!
By the time everyone else was up this morning I had fed and watered the chooks, raked the garden, cleaned and polished the kitchen to within an inch of its life and done two loads of washing. I stopped at vacuuming as felt it might wake the sleeping beauties! I also managed to read quite a lot of ‘The Stand’ as it was the longest book I could find and I fear a theme of long nights has arisen!
So, I slept at some point between 2am and 3am. That’s it! I’m now ready and waiting for the crash – but so far I’ve done the food shopping and am actually early for yoga too! I may well sleep during the lovely relaxing part of yoga but hey ho!
I am however feeling quite manic. My brain did all sorts of rediculous thinking last night (how to get a double bed into a tiny room, where to move a bookcase, what career I should now do etc etc etc)
I have had palpitations but that’s not new. I’m waiting for headaches, shakes, depression etc but so far just manic!
