So, today was the 6th day of self-medicating with NDT and I cannot believe how different I feel. Instead of being in bed at 6pm yesterday, I was up and pottering until 9:30 and rather than peeling my eyes open around 9am, I was the one who jumped up and took the dog out at 6:15am. At 2pm, I snuggled down for the obligatory afternoon nap, which is the only thing that keeps me awake for long enough to eat with my family at the end of their day, but today, I couldn't sleep - I didn't need to, so I got back up and hoovered the house instead. While I was at it, I got on the scales, only to discover I've lost 3lbs since last weight have consistently gained week in, week out for the last 3 years.
Of course, it could be far too soon for the NDT to be in my system, and this is all the placebo effect. If it is, then I am in love with my placebo!!! I'm living a little bit every day, even if it is just housework, and it feels good!
