It’s two in the morning as I write this. Wide awake. After five years of progressive addiction to sleeping drugs, I’ve “completed ” a 60 day withdrawal program, taking the last of it two days ago. At age 67, other than insomnia, I have tremors, elevated heart rate, severe abdominal cramping, brain zaps, coordination problems, muscle pain and weakness, plus nausea. I’ve been congratulated by my medical watchdogs, and assured that these inconveniences will taper off after another “couple of months”. If not, I can give them a call.
Well, this is my payment for past weaknesses.
