Something Is Wrong, But I Don’t Know What

It’s 5:30 in the morning, and I’m awake.  Same thing happened yesterday.  Of course, I had a lot of trouble getting to sleep the last two nights, too.  Something is wrong, but I don’t know what it is.  I’m taking my sleep meds at night.  I’m taking my depression pills everyday.  I’m feeling alright, I think.  Except I’m not getting enough sleep.  And I haven’t been doing much around the house.  Haven’t had a shower since the weekend.

Ughhh….  I feel fine, but I’m following back into old habits.  What is wrong?  Do I need to call my doctor?  Or am I just a little stressed out, and it’s having a negative affect on me?  School starts back for the kids on Monday.  I’m busy getting them ready.  I’m not locking myself in the house.  I’m not avoiding going out.  I have been doing the Open Houses for the kids.  I made a point of getting with a good friend last Saturday.  I knew that this week would be busy with back to school things.  So why am I letting everything else fall to the side?

I’m cooking meals for the family with no problem.  Keeping the kitchen looking nice.  I’ve been keeping up with the laundry.  I haven’t been doing my day to day cleaning that I usually do.  I’ve been reading a lot.  That’s not a good thing.  It’s Thursday, and I’m just now doing a blog post.

Should I be worried?  Will everything go back to “normal” next week?  I’ve made so much progress.  I don’t understand what is going on.

What Autism Is – The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

When you do a search for “autism” or “what is autism”, you get websites that will provide you with a sweet, scientific definition. It will tell you that it is a “complex developmental disability”, or a “brain-based disorder.” These definitions are a nice stepping stone for understanding what autism is, but they don’t . . . → Read More: What Autism Is – The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

I had my two week follow-up with my doctor. We talked about how I was doing, and I tried to be very detailed in answering her. I have still been having trouble sleeping.
