Sticking to it

"Another behavior that responds well to a sticker chart is sleeping independently. 
If the child stays in his own bed all night he can earn a sticker in the morning."

"Sometimes we take action, sometimes we take pills."

"I don't need a life that's normal
That's way too far away
But something next to normal
would be okay
Yeah, something next to normal
That's the thing I'd like to try
Close enough to normal
To get by."

Hanging in there.
Doing what I have to do to get my F'd up sleep re-ordered.
Following the rules, mostly.
Taking the meds, daily.
Sleeping better, sometimes.
Keeping positive, for the most part.
Little victories, incremental progress, baby steps.
