This morning I made myself get up early to get my blood drawn for a doctor appointment next week. 371 more words

Tapering - Day Four

Hello everyone! I hope your Monday went well. Today was actually a semi-decent day, for the first time since I started this journey on Friday. I was able to sleep comfortably through the night and woke up when I wanted to, not when the cats decided they wanted breakfast (Don’t worry, they didn’t starve all night long!) I’m guessing the better sleep was probably attributed to two things: First, a shower right before bed, and second, an extra dose of my muscle relaxer. 138 more words

Day Three, Part Two
