Tale of Woes

Hi everyone,

I have really been scarce this week and I didn't mean too. I just wasn't sure if I was going to survive or even I wanted too. Listen to my tale of woe and hopefully you will get a good chuckle out of it.

My new doctor decided that I needed to change sleeping pills. I have been Trazadone for past four years. I am supposed to switch to Ambien but I was supposed to taper off the trazadone gradually. Well I ran out so I just switched over. Since last Saturday, my internal thermostat has been on the blitz. It took me til Wednesday to figure out what was causing. One minute I would be dying to heat then next second I was freezing. My DH kept saying that it was menopause even when I explained to him that menopause wouldn't happen overnight. I am finally coming out of this tailspin but it has been a hell of a week.

Gym Update: I have been a really bad girl. I haven't been to the gym in almost 2 weeks. I am going to correct that tomorrow morning as I want to hit the water aerobics before work. Then I will get to weigh myself. I think that I have lost some pounds as I haven't really been eating much.

I hope that everyone had a great week!



  1. Let me know how the Trazadone works -- I've got chronic insomnia and it's worse due to pain so I'm a bit desperate for something!

  2. It works pretty well. I had just been on it so long that the efficiency was really going down the drain. But whatever you do...don't go off it cold
