I see my psych soon and I have things I really need to discuss with her. First on the list is changing my prescriptions from weekly pickups back to regular monthly pickups. Four or five months ago when I was not well, I guess it made sense, although I would never hurt myself with something … Continue reading Med review today
Okay. So the side effects of this new antidepressant are not so much fun. I feel like I’m starving all of the time. Like literally all I want to do is eat. I am not a fan. Hopefully, that goes away soon, otherwise I’m going to have to stock my fridge with celery sticks. Seriously … Continue reading Ugh to side effects!
My psych added a new antidepressant to my cocktail of meds yesterday. I am hopeful that the med will help lift me up out of the constant state of low level depression I seem to be in. It’s kind of like I’m under water but I can see the surface and just can’t break through. … Continue reading New meds and trying
I took my meds at 9:30. It’s midnight. I’m still awake. I have to be awake early. I’m still not down the rabbit hole of sleepiness. This is so frustrating!! I can feel them in my system, but they are not enough to take me down. My anxiety is overriding then. It’s crap. I just … Continue reading Down the rabbit hole
For real. I totally screwed up my dose of my med because I didn’t read the bottle that I picked up from the pharmacy on Friday. I had been on 2mg, and she said she was going to double it to 4mg. I was like, okay. She made it sound like I should be able … Continue reading Read your bottles!
Today was my oldest friend’s daughter’s graduation party. I should have been there. I was worried about the crowd, but I mean, I planned on being there. I wasn’t going to not go because of it. I would do almost anything for this friend. I am mortified that I couldn’t be there for this party. … Continue reading Big fail
I feel like I’m in a fog. I’m not certain I’m enjoying the bump in my meds. I couldn’t get to sleep again last night, I had to run to the bathroom like four or five times in the middle of the night after I ate, and after I finally fell asleep, I woke up … Continue reading Groggy and headachy
I saw my psych prescriber this morning. We decided to increase the dose of the newer (to me) one. I really hope this helps knock me out at night. I’m over being awake for hours and staring at my phone. I’m over feeling restless and agitated. So… hopefully it helps. She’s worried about side effects, … Continue reading More meds
Okay, so maybe not an actual emergency. The air conditioning is dead at my house. It’s a real problem though considering how hot it’s supposed to get for the next week. My mom does not handle heat well. She gets very sick. I can’t tolerate it anymore either due to my psych meds. I get … Continue reading It’s an emergency!
So I got a sunburn in the shade, under a tree, when it was cloudy out. Fantastic. I’m glad I wasn’t sitting out any longer. It’s kind of funny. The mood stabilizer and other meds I’m on make me sensitive to sun and heat, so I also have a bit of a headache. It’s only … Continue reading Sunburned!
