Well I did it! My first night without meds!
Granted it wasn't a great night by any means. I was extremely nervous going to bed. Very jittery and wired. So I knew that it would take awhile to fall asleep. The dark room really seemed to help though. I was asleep within 2 hours. Big improvement from 4-5 hours! I really just tried to concentrate on my breathing. 5 seconds inhale, 5 seconds exhale. That really seemed to help. Nathan woke up a lot last night though. He was up at 3:30, 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30. It's ok though. I didn't expect miracles. :)
But I did it. And that is what counts. I couldn't have done it without Brandon though. He came up to me last night and said "I really admire you for doing this." That made it much easier on me. Thanks honey!
