Quitting…

So I’ve decided it’s time to quit smoking. Not sure if this is the best time to make such a dramatic change in my life, but I figure if I’m trying to get mentally healthy, I should try to be physically healthy too. My quit day is Thursday. I’ve given myself a chance to cut […]

Zombie-sleep

I just took a couple of Zoplicones, so please excuse if this post is all over the place. Or if there are spelling mistakes! I hate being mid-project. I decided to repaint my patio furniture, only to find out that one spray can covers only one chair (I feel like I’ve written this already, so […]

Restless without a cause

I’m so restless! I promised myself that I wouldn’t turn on the TV today until 7:30, which is when Jeopardy is on, and I figure if I’m going to watch TV, it might as well be something that makes me think. After that there’s a rerun of the Men’s Olympic gold medal game that I […]

Paranoia… and a little low

So I’m in a bit of a low. And I’m very upset about it. Not upset that I’m low. That’s usually to be expected. It’s the reason I’m low. Last night I baby sat my friend’s daughter. I had a great time playing with her (she’s eight months) and everything, and the whole evening went […]

A breakthrough

Well, it’s been a while (again) since I’ve posted anything but at least that should be taken as a good thing. Things have been going pretty well for me. Relatively stable, no highs and very few lows. Looks like lithium was my saving grace. Now if only I could get the sleep issues under control. […]
