I think my resistance is too low. & the Foley catheter as an irritant is a problem. I probably should not be moving around so much.
At least I have Zolpidem Tartrate (Ambien) back in stock. Last night was typical. I listened to the ballgames, then read. About 12:30 am I took 1/2 a Tylenol PM. I fluffed up the down comforter on the futon, propped up the pillows. I cut a small 10 mg generic Ambien in half, melted a half in my mouth like candy & washed it down. I got under the blanket & read. After 10 or 15 minutes I noticed that I was holding the book but my mind, perhaps suggested by what I was reading (a Janet Evanovich "Stephanie Plum" novel), had wandered completely away from the book. I put the book down, turned out the light, rolled on my side, & shortly fell asleep. I woke up to pre-dawn light. I knew it would be difficult to get back to sleep. I got up, turned on the a.c. fan for white noise, & took the other half of the Ambien tablet. I fell asleep again & woke up about 8 am.
