I was only depressed a couple of days.

Since then, I've been tidying up and "renovating" more.

After tidying up, I found 4 pairs of scissors I was missing.  Some were spares, others were for cutting heavy stuff like cardboard.

(my second sleep lab was cancelled - turns out they got enuf data from my first one)

I was depressed a couple of days, first time in a long time, thanks to Mirtazapine (?).  Better today.

I was overwhelmed with redoing my place, tidying up (the usual!).  I have trouble (sometimes a LOT of trouble) with mechanical things, like putting my new bed frame together.  I think there are some parts missing, like bolts, which I bought in a hardware store.

It's on hold for now, as I have a ton on ironing to catch up on.  My mattress is on the floor (threw out old one).  Feels a little odd, but.....

I saw a geriatric Dr. twice at St. Michaels.  The second time:  "You've graduated." - I won't have to see him again.

He gave me a memory test twice, and I did much better on it the second time because of the Mirtazapine, he said.

This is ironic, I barely remember the test from a few months ago, and I barely remember talking to him back then...... :o  Oh well.

I have to check with my pharmacist - he said that if you increase the Mirtazapine it doesn't help you to sleep anymore (?).......I forget.
I still can't get over taking an antidepressant at bedtime.....never heard of that.

I still take Wellbutrin when I wake up.  Notice I didn't say "In the morning."  I'm trying to change - honest....to not stay up forever, and sleep in the next day.

Hi, Dragonfly.....The slats help with support.  You may not need a box spring according to experts on the net.

Not sure if I still have bugs.....very few, if any.   :)


Peter

I'm sometimes itchy here and there - it could be psychological, and I have sensitive skin anyway.

Peter, I don't have a box spring. Just a single mattress in a bed frame with slats. That works for me.

Hope you don't have any more problems with bugs.

Hi Peter,
 I went for a sleep study. I didn't sleep much. I was told that I needed to do another one. I was borderline. The doctor that is the head of the sleep study is a crook. All he wanted to do was to sell me one of those machines. The doctor asked how much I drove. I said not much. I read in reviews that he will take your license away. Reviews totally not good on him. I was sent for this study by my kidney specialist. When I saw him again he was very happy that I didn't buy the machine.
At home I became very angry about the fact that the doctor wanted another sleep study. No way I am doing it again. Although the doctor led me to believe I had a very slight sleep apnea he was playing on me for his profit.
I am not saying that sleep studies are not good for some people.

Re buying my bed, I delayed doing that because I thought I "wasn't good enough" to do a major purchase like that.  Maybe the Mirtazapine helped me?
Also, pain in the ass putting the building elevator on hold........

It turns out the receptionist didn't put the elevator on hold - that's what I would've done if I was in charge.  A twin bed is small.

Me, another random passenger, and the two delivery guys with mattress and metal frame easily fit on the elevator......it was quick, too.

I was sprayed again....still feel  >:( the odd one, like right now!

I'm fixing up my place, starting with a new twin bed.  I have a double bed, which takes up too much space in my tiny apt, plus it's old.

Because of the bugs, I'm very careful about quickly put the mattress cover on, so bugs don't get in....


Experts on the net say you don't need a box spring, contrary to popular opinion.  In most cases.

Instead, I have a piece of plywood.....I'm also very careful putting a plastic encasement on it so bugs don't lay eggs on it or whatever.

(I have a piece of plywood just in case, plus I don't want a really high bed.  The lack of box spring will lower the height.)

It turns out I don't have to go for a second sleep study....they got enough data from my first one.  Maybe I slept more than I thought.

BUT, I see the sleep Dr. re the results around November 7!   >:(  Long wait!  What if I have something wrong?  I think I'm a loud snorer.

Paul, you guys can hear me snore to all the way to where you live on Lake Simcoe (?)?   :o
