Day two of waking up and not feeling tired. I can’t even put into words how great that is. I am starting to feel more like myself. I still was in bed by 8 yesterday and sleeping before 9. I also had no strength in my legs and had to transfer directly from my wheelchair to my bed. Yet all that is ok because I woke up peppy and smiling. I woke up in good spirits with energy and it has been so long. I have already showered and worked out and I’m doing ok. It was two days ago I wrote the post I showered and I’m exhausted I showered, I’m exhausted. This is such a huge improvement I can only celebrate.
I guess the expired Provigil really wasn’t working too well. It was over three years past the expiration date but the bottle wasn’t opened so I hoped for the best. The first day I took the actual prescription from the pharmacy was Wednesday morning. It was unfortunately not in stock when I filed it and wasn’t ready for pick up until Monday afternoon. My aid picked it up for me but ended up sick on Tuesday morning. By the time she got to my home it was too late to take the pill. Wednesday was the first unexpired dosage pill I took. Thursday was the first day I felt slightly better. I think changing back to Provigil from Adderall was the right call for me, regardless I had to pay for the pills. I might still need time to be out of this episode but at least I feel some light at the end of the tunnel.
