It's Been A While

This is hopefully me starting to blog a little more frequently again. I have my laptop with me and I have logged into the free wi-fi set-up in the local library (well local to my assisted-living accommodation) so I don't have to book onto one of their computers which can be like 'rocking-horse manure' to get on to at times.

I have now been out of hospital for a week and things are improving as far as my mood is concerned, which is undoubtedly due to an increase in my medication, but I am still having problems with sleep. I either get to sleep quickly and then wake in the early hours of the morning and find myself unable to get back to sleep again, or I have problems getting to sleep so that it is almost dawn before I eventually drop off.

I have to go back to the hospital this afternoon for 'ward round' with my consultant and then I should be out on 'leave' for another week before I have to go back again. Next Monday I am due to start living at home again full time, rather than just visiting for a few hours several times a week.

I have actually been looking forward to getting back to the blogosphere and I really do appreciate all the lovely comments and emails that regular readers have been sending me. It is so heart-warming for someone who lives on their own to have so many friends out there sending messages of encouragement when you are not at your best. I really cannot express how much it has meant to me and how it has helped me during this very difficult period.

Glad things are going well with you. My sleep seems to be a bit more on track so hopefully another week of routine and regular blogging may help! if you ever want to visit, you know you're welcome to.
