We spent Christmas in Milwaukee visiting Sara's family, and New Years at home with a homemade lasagna! Sara and I both agree that our time closing out 2015 couldn't have been better. We got to spend some quality time together, and we didn't get sick of each other once! :)
We spent Christmas at her uncles empty condo, (he spends the winter in Arizona), and so that meant Sara could make cookies, and I felt free to get up and watch tv or read whenever I wanted. I haven't been sleeping too good, so that was a bonus.
Our Christmas' went well. We gave and received great gifts, and everything went pretty smoothly. No drinking for me, which we now know is key to my mood stability. I should've known this years ago, and probably did, but ignored it for some time.
The new year saw some seizures, but again, my mood stayed stable, and I was able to make it to 11pm to watch the ball drop in NYC, before heading off to bed. I seriously couldn't stay awake one minute longer! Sara's lasagna was delicious, as always, and so far 2016 has been ok.
I found a new supplement called melatonin that has helped my sleep, but I still have some work to do in that department. Hopefully nothing too strenuous. I really don't mind having to get up for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. It's quiet, and in some ways relaxing. I just know I need the sleep to help with seizure activity.
So, so far, 2016 has been in like a lamb, as well. Let's just hope this year is a year of change for the better, and a path to a better, simpler life is laid out before us.
Happy new year to all of you!
