Bean Sprouts and Tapestry Moon

I have been too busy to blog the continuing saga of my struggles with insomnia and fibromyalgia.

I gave up taking the Ambien. It seemed to be making the fibromylagia worse. I continued taking the Rozerem. In combination with careful eating, it seemed to be making the sleeping and fibromylagia somewhat better.

Last night I made two separate stir-fries, one for Keith and one for me. Keith likes pea pods, but I'm afraid to eat legumes, so I made him one with and me one without, but then I stupidly put bean sprouts in mine. What was I thinking? Hello--legumes!!!

So last night I slept less well, much wakefulness, and woke with worse fibro. I'm blaming the bean sprouts, but of course, it could have been something else. We shall, as Keith says, "foon sind out" as I will be going to the allergist in a week and dropping lots of money--hundreds and hundreds of dollars--because it isn't covered by my health insurance. You can take all the pills you want to cover up a problem, but you can't find out what's causing it.

The artwork is supoosed to be a representation of insomnia, but it's too pretty. Oh well, I like it anyway. I may fiddle with it more. What is it really? (I mean what was it before I messed with it?) Click here if you're curious.

I hope the allergist uncovers something helpful.

I dunno, But I am sure hoping it's helpful because it's going to cost a LOT!

But if it does turn out I have multiple allergies, it will be helpful to at least know what to avoid.

If not, I'll have to look elsewhere for help. At least I will KNOW.

Maybe it's just my imagination but Rozerem isn't working. Not only, but I toss and turn. I ain't a happy camper. It's supposed to make its taker sleepy, correct? Right. I'm waiting!

It doesn't make me sleepy, either. I still have insomnia. But what it has done is regulate my diurnal cycle somewhat. I feel a little better, but I'm still not sleeping. Not well anyway.

I looked at some of your pretty pictures but couldn't leave a comment.
