Insomnia sucks

I was still wide awake at 5:30 this morning.  I tried every trick in my repertoire, but sleep just would not come.  My head has been pounding all day today, and I am sick to my stomach.

I continue to suffer with the Lamictal Rash, which rages on and still covers more than half of my body.  My lymph nodes continue to fight the fight and as a result are enormous.  The high dose Prednisone seems to have lost it's edge.

No flourish of words today. I am completely shredded. 




  1. I couldn't sleep either when I first had my Lamictal increased. I do however think that Lamictal is a great drug for me. I am doing much better now. are you getting any better? ps. I love the "I cant sleep" cartoon on ur page.

    1. Lamictal is a miracle for those who make it beyond the serious side effects - I was hoping that would be me! C'est la vie, I suppose.

      I am doing quite well - thanks for asking. I am now taking 1750 Depakote, 50 zoloft, 15 Adderall, and 5 - 10 mg valium, as needed. I started a new job - a dream job - and hope that this is the start of a stable period in my life. I can feel rumbling undercurrents of worry, but see a therapist once a week and my psychiatrist once a month to keep my head above water.


Thank you for taking the time to read and leave a comment.
