I have been feeling much better these past few days. I have plenty of energy and my feet hurt less from the neuropathy. My back still occasionally gives me a twinge. The jury is still out on how well the kidney infection is healing.
I still, however, have terrible insomnia. I get into bed and I simply cannot fall asleep. Last night I decided that I couldn't afford another restless night, when I had to get out of bed to rest on the sofa after tossing and turning for hours. So I took some Ativan and it did eventually relax me enough to fall asleep. Otherwise, after trying to sleep on the sofa, I would desperately need a nap in the middle of the day, and the whole pattern would repeat again. So I will stick with the sleeping pills again tonight and ask Dr G about it tomorrow.
