Awful sleep pattern. Coming off medication.

I just spent half an hour typing this entry and then the backspace stuck on deleting everything. I apologise if this doesn’t read well as I’m tired because I haven’t slept. I have to put up with the awful sleep pattern to completely get off medication. I would have stayed on the medication if it hadn’t have been for the weight gain, extreme hunger and irritability. The system has taken everything in my life so far. I’m not allowing it to take my looks too. I don’t want my body to end up huge and mishaped due to medication.

The medication helped me sleep at night but made me fat and grumpy. I’m taking it once a week at the moment to get off of them. The withdrawal isn’t pleasant but the whistling in my ears and other neurological effects will not last long. The tingling sensation under my skin can be slightly unnerving but it’s just electrical signals adjusting to the chemicals of the medication levels falling.

A blog written by a female diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but suspected PDA in more recent years. Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe was created to not only create awareness of the PDA part of the spectrum; but also to educate the public hopefully creating understanding in order to stop future generations being let down and labelled negatively. Disclaimer: There may be parts of this blog which viewers may find upsetting as it contains accounts of real life events which have been quite traumatic. However, it is all to help create a sense of understanding and combat the fear surrounding all aspects of mental illness and Pathological Avoidance Syndrome (a very little understood part of the autistic spectrum).
