JD - I prefer to call mine a Gremlin.
Lostly - Yeah the timer seems to work so far. In fact I wonder why I didn't do that long ago when I realized it became an issue. I mean I used to write down times but somehow ignored them, an actual alarm is better. Still, it's like I wait for my next dose with time slowing down, but then I think I need to distract myself. I am sometimes taking my normal dose and sometimes half.
I'll admit I had a tiny slip, a little snort earlier before I saw JDs reply. But I didn't get much from that this time, it felt pointless. I think it's from reading so many journals heavily before I joined up and that "small" WD I just went through (felt like forever) has kicked me into touch.
However it's early days.

Actually, right now I'm craving a coffee more than anything. :laugh: Certainly not a good idea. I need a proper sleep.

I had a good nights sleep last night (but filled with nightmares thanks to something I watched last night and my own imagination). I woke up in pain (which is usual) and with a painkiller "hangover". Took a full dose (it's working very well, my tolerance drops very quickly if I have a few days without), but only what is prescribed, so I'm in control for now, no urge to take more. Another nice coffee this morning.
I'm a bit boring this morning because things seem ok at the moment.
