was diagnosed with bronchitis and prescribed Benzonatate today. Benzonatate helps.

Last night I could not use the BiPAP due to difficulties breathing. Today I hope I will be able to.

Otherwise had an OK day.

Good night!

I've been "easing" my way in to Daylight Savings Time. Usually, I do okay waking up on time after the Time Change, but after a few days I slip back into Standard Time.

That's what happened this morning, after waking 5:30am and 6am on Monday and Tuesday.

This year I took the Time Change Week as my mandatory week off.

BTW, I don't use an alarm.

Not using an alarm is best. I know that.

Had a good day even though last night my sleep was interrupted by cough and I only had 5 hrs 40 mins of net sleep which typically is way too little for me. But it was not too little today. I am just a little concerned with being too excited. Do not want this to devolve into hypomania.

One more night off the BiPAP due to bronchitis. Tomorrow night I hope to feel better and be back on the "sleeping machine".

11:15PM good night!

11:26 PM I am still not in bed. I realized what had started happening: a mood reaction to the cough medicine. I have just read that it can even cause hallucinations. To nip it in the bud, I took Lybalvi for sleep. Lybalvi is Zyprexa+.

I do not want to go to bed, but I must.

11:40 PM. Finally Lybalvi has started to work. I am tired enough to go to bed. Let us see what this night brings.
