I just wanted to share my little success… I spent time in a hospital after a breakdown thanks to domestic abuse and violence. I was heavily medicated day and night for some time. A few months ago I decided to ditch the night tablets and put my hospital learnings into practice so got back to sleeping unmedicated…

I am a little bit proud to announce I am now on day 6 of coming off my tablets…Under dr supervision I have halved my dose and will stay on this for a month….then halve that does for a month then off I come…

I am excited to move on with my life and get rid of this reminder (and the weight that comes with it!)

I am excited again for what is to come!
