The opposite of how I've been

I took 1/4 of a valium last evening. My doctor had told me probably 1/2 would be best for me. When the 1/4 didn't do much I took another 1/4. I think that was a mistake......I am as relaxed as can be, but I also can barely walk. Fortunately I don't have to leave until 8 today, but wow.

It is, however, soooooooooooo nice to be calm. I just wish there were a slightly more moderate way to get here. (My plan for now is to take it once/day with the amount depending on how late it is. I may move my bedtime Klonopin to a mid-day Klonopin to see what that does, because Klonopin is the best drug I'm on (even though valium sure is effective......)

In some ways I haven't felt this good since mid-July. Too bad it's gonna fade.

Please forgive typos. I've fixed a lot, but being this sleepy isn't so easy......

Hope you've been able to WALK right into your work today! How difficult to feel sleepy and then have to leave for work! It's amazing what you overcome to perform as a professional AND I KNOW YOU DO!!

Meds are powerful. Great reminder that you don't need to take any of this personally!

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,


"Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too. After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you His eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever. To Him be all power over all things, forever and ever. Amen. (See 1 Peter 5: 6-11)

Hi!!! My name is Ana and I´m an OT sstudent, from Portugal. I´m very interested about sensory integration disorders in adults with mental ilness. I saw an article about SI treatment approaches and current evidence suggests that Sensory Integration treatment interventions are as effective. As OT, can you help me to find more information about this? Can you share your experience with me? I´ve discovered your blog a few minutes ago, and I´m really interested.


sorry for my terrible English!!!

... I love your blog! :)
