Jan. 29, 2014 (Countdown: 11.5 hours to gynecologist consultation):
I didn't get in any kind of altercation/argument this week as the anxiety ramped up toward tomorrow's appointment. This is big improvement over times past.
Although I'm not getting enough sleep on weeknights, I continue to be free of the sleep medication and functioning acceptably well. It's not a great sleep pattern, but better than in the past and better than being on the prescription.
I feel confident right now that I will show up for the appointment and we will accomplish my goals for the appointment.
