Last night I took TWO of my 10-mg Amitriptyline pills--& I slept through the night with only a very short time of early-morning wakefulness!
I did wake up groggy & didn't get up earlier than usual as I had hoped. Probably my body will need some time to adjust to the new higher dosage.
The train was delayed this morning, so I transitioned to reading my current novel after my usual Bible reading & prayer. But by the time I switched to my second train, I was in a really bad mood. Thinking a bit, I realized that it was probably the grogginess + the novel I've been reading. It's a serious novel, The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing, but I DON'T LIKE IT; I find it annoying, & it's big & heavy so it weighs me down.
No more of that book! I've removed it from my bag & am going to leave it here in the office till next time I drive my car to work & thus have an easy way to carry heavy stuff home. I don't need to clutter my mind with a boring, depressing book no matter how famous/important it is.
I'm going to march to protest the Iraq war this evening after work. It will feel good to be outdoors giving some expression to what I believe.
