PROSECCO + AMITRIPTYLINE = INSOMNIA!

A local restaurant sent me a voucher for a bottle of Prosecco because it was my birthday. Well, of course, we took advantage of it.

Julian had to go to a meeting on the actual day so we went last night and claimed my present and each had three courses (my diet is not working this week!) We ate and drank slowly, I had less than half the bottle (Prosecco is too bubbly and slightly sweet and, anyway, I’ve just about cut alcohol out of my life recently.).

We were home in time for me to watch a programme I had looked forward to seeing and I didn’t feel at all tipsy. I had a coffee (can’t sleep without a strong black coffee, believe it or not!), watched the programme, said good night and have a safe journey to Julian who is off to the airport in a few hours, did a couple of word puzzles and came to bed.

I turned on some “sleep music” which helps me (water, oboe, tinkly bells, harp – I think) and listened to the whole hour of it while it gently played — all the way through, which never happens!

I have tossed and turned and now it’s after four! I thought I was going to spend a leisurely morning then go to my tai-chi class but I think I’ll be so exhausted by noon that I won’t make it. Damnation!

I don’t know if everyone reacts in the same way to the combination but, if you have sciatica and take amitriptyline to keep it at bay, and if it’s your birthday and you’re given a free bottle, take care! Will I remember the next time? Probably not😟.
