The biggest part of having Dystonia is the progression but just as important is the fatigue. You can get all the sleep that is possible and still wake up feeling what we call “tired”. People ask what I did today that would cause me to be so tired but it’s not what I did today that makes me tired. It could be me being tired from what I did the day before. Yes. They day before or even the day before that.
Most of us use different methods to stay woke but the medications we take make us drowsy and come with that do not drive or operate heavy machinery warning. I have been trying to stay woke all day and go to bed at the same time every night. It is working to a certain extent. I need something to do still even though I am disabled and retired. Recently, I have been having problems opening my eyes in the morning again. This makes getting up everyday even harder. Sometimes I can’t go to sleep at night and end up sleeping all day. No matter what I do or don’t do, I am still going to suffer from fatigue during the day and especially in the morning when I am about to start the day.
I have been working on this website and connecting with more people who are interested in African American Trades & Goods. I myself am trying to start a business selling the oil combinations that I make and use for me and my daughters’ hair which she believes is making our hair grow. Right now, we both have the same hair style. High Pony Tails. Hers is bigger than mine of course. This is because the person who was supposed to do our hair is busy. Our hair is long enough to get away with neat ponytails now so why not wear one.
I have went through the withdrawal symptoms of taking Valium for all those years and came out on the other side just fine. I am glad I have medical marijuana access in my state because that helped a lot with the nausea and insomnia. The down side is that I have a higher tolerance now. I need a certain dosage a day to stop the tremors. I smoke more if the quality is bad like what I just recently bought and yes, even with a license or card, you still can end up with old or weaker strains of what you need. Even though you are going to a dispensary. Look close before you buy is what you should do.
I am feeling much better now that I am no longer dependent on any medication finally. I feel so much better that I am going to celebrate soon. I was getting my hair done by a family member just to get it done. I really don’t have any plans to go any where. I just want somebody I know does good work to braid my hair for a change. Of course it is not for free but it is a family discount that I can use and part of African American Trades & Goods. We are just getting the goods in now and the site is going to be updated soon. Please do subscribe or I will keep you posted here as the changes are made and the site gets new content.
