I'm UP....again.

One of the worst symptoms I've had is insomnia. I want to blame it on the medication (Cymbalta) but I don't think that is completely it. I have even tried taking extended release Melatonin (10mg!), and I STILL wake up between 2am and 4am. My eyes popped WIDE open at 4am this morning, and I wasn't able to go back to sleep. I started Baclofen Monday, which is an anti-spasm and muscle relaxer. It has been GREAT. It has really loosened up my muscles. The downside is that I am tripping more, and walking into walls. I walked SMACK into the hallway opening on my way to the bathroom this morning. I have always done this, even when I was I kid. It's just worse! I have to laugh at it. My coworker, Stephanie, has repeatedly heard me say "OUCH!"- she knows I've bumped into something, or walked into a wall. She will still ask "are you ok?!!". haha. MRI on Monday. I don't think I can wait 2 weeks on the results.
The boys get to go on a trip with College Project this morning. They're traveling to Northeastern State University in Talequah, the aquarium, and Incredible Pizza. They will be gone until 9pm, so I think Gillian and I will have a girl's night out after dance. I think a trip to Goody's froyo is in order. Woohoo!!
