H.A.L.T. it worked for me last night.
Yesterday I felt very tired, I know its from the fighting that I was doing. Gladly I could remember the HALT (hungery,angry, lonely and tired)and for the very first time, in the evening, I used this. The headache that I felt and all the things I could do before going to bed was my disease talking. So
for the very first time I commited myself to this HALT principle.
I think it was my HP wanted me to promise that whatever I was feeling not to come out of my bed. I needed to promise that to cope with my disease.
While laying in my bed asking G*d to help me, there where several moments that I felt the urge to go out of bed, I even said it out loud that I needed to stay in bed because otherwise my desease would play again with me.
When I woke up this morning I felt content and gratefull and was aware the tools are there to be used. It works when you work it!
I wrote it all down so I can see it really happened.

Good for you Ginger. That's the way !
I know it's not always easy to put to work all that we are learning, but once a part of our thinking process it gets easier.
"Failure is an EVENT, it is not a person – yesterday really did end
night, and today is your brand new day..."
The sun always rises, and a new day begins.
