I have not been sleeping well. It has been ongoing, but I think it is getting worse. I am exhausted but not able to sleep. I don’t get a lot done during the day because I am so tired. And, since I am awake I go online, which I am sure does not help. I start looking at ideas for new projects. I am fermenting vegetables so now I am thinking of planting a vegetable garden in my backyard. But, I have no idea where to begin. So, I surf the web looking for information on that, instead of relaxing,
My psychiatrist prescribed a medicine, trazodone, for sleep. It is not helping too much. I asked if it interacted with supplements, like melatonin, and my dr said it would be okay for me so I am going to take both tonight.
I have projects stacking up, but the fermenting is taking off. My pickles turned out good. I set up a second batch with a different type of cucumber. I know you use pickling cucumbers but I can’t find anything with that name. I have sauerkraut and kimchi that should be done in a week. I just set up beets to make kvass. The kimchi tasted good fresh. That is a short ferment, 8 days.
I see my new therapist for second appointment tomorrow. The insurance said pending and I was worried they would deny it, but it was eventually approved. I don’t really know what to talk about except the lack of sleep.
I have been putting off trying to learn to crochet. I have a kit that has a YouTube video but I don’t get it. I looked at wiki how but it confuses me. I have not put much effort into it. I guess I could bring the Internal Family Systems workbook to therapy. I did not know where to start but maybe she will have suggestions.
