I got ready for church today, as I have been doing for the past few months. I was all ready and completely awake. Then, as usual, I took my Klonopin before I went to church so that I didn’t have a panic attack during sacrament meeting. Well, I was doing fine until about thirty minutes later when all of a sudden I was drained of all my energy. I was fighting to keep my eyes open. With about twenty minutes left in the meeting, and two more hours left until church was over, I had to get up and go call home. I was about to pass out. Apparently, Klonopin does not like whatever Depakote was left in my system from last night. I fell asleep once I got home and slept for a few hours. I’m still a bit drowsy, but not too bad.
I wish I could have stayed at church since Elenya was back this weekend and I haven’t seen her in so long, but if I had gone to Sunday School, I would have been falling over asleep, which would not have been good. I hate it when I’m not able to make it through a whole meeting, but sometimes you have to realize what your body can and can’t handle. Apparently, today, my body couldn’t handle the possibility of staying awake any longer.
