Seroquel: Day 1
Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
Last night I started on a new medication (Seroquel) to help me with sleep and the symptoms of OCD that keep me from relaxing enough to be able to sleep. For the first time in quite awhile I was in bed before midnight, and slept ALL night. The best part was, not only did I sleep, but I slept soundly. I'm very encouraged by this and hope that this is the right medication for me.
In the past I've been reluctant to try medications that would affect my brain. I was worried that I would be robbed of my "spark" or that little something that makes me such a creative individual.
I'm praying that Seroquel is in fact the key that we've been looking for to unlock the door to a calmer, more stable Lauren. It's far to early to tell for sure, but I'm optimistic.
