. . . and how will I know when it finally does?
I’ve been on it for two weeks and so far the only thing that has changed is that I only get about 4 hours of sleep a night. I thought it was getting better but last night I woke up at 11:00 and finally at 2:00 I took half a valium, and finally fell asleep around 3:00. I so much don’t want to take valium because I want to see how my body will fare without that or meclizine but getting by on 1 or 2 hours of sleep is too painful to even think about. In the past I have had insominia but always, after 1 or 2 nights or at the most 3 nights of little sleep I will get a good night of very deep sleep and then things are okay for a few weeks until I have another couple of nights. But after 2 weeks of this I am starting to feel very depressed and crabby and angry and very worried about how I will make it through 9 hours of work today.
I keep taking the stuff because I’m thinking it has to get better sometime, but will it? And if it does eventually take away the constant feeling of motion sickness and the occassional attacks of vertigo then it may be worth it. But back to my original question, how long does it take for it to start working? Should I have felt a different by now? Since I feel so lousy from lack of sleep how will I ever know if it is working. This is really the last chance drug for me - the others are out for one reason or another so I want to give this a try for as long as I can.
