Week 2 ends and Week 3 begins

Well, a lot happened last week, which is why I didn’t have time to update this or call anyone. I went from almost manic on Monday to hopelessly depressed on Friday. After a relaxing weekend at my parents’, without my phone, which I left at CAMH by accident, I came back refreshed and feeling pretty […]

Sleep, sleep, smoke, sleep.

Well, my sleeping habits have taken a 180 degree turn. Since Sunday, I haven’t gotten out of bed earlier than 5 pm. I’ve been trying to sleep earlier in the evening, but even with the Seroquel, I can’t fall asleep before 2 am. The last three nights it’s taken me between two and four times […]

Parentheses overload

Well, I’ve been avoiding writing here for a few reasons — the main reason being a fear of putting my thoughts into concrete words. Because my thoughts have been far from positive these past few weeks. Nothing has really changed, except that I’m off work now so I have more time to sleep (or to […]

A post from behind the mask

I didn’t realize how long it had been since I’d updated the blog until a friend told me on Friday that it’s been almost three weeks and she was tired of seeing “One pill, two pill, three pill, four” every time she checks to see if I’ve updated it. The thing is, the past few […]

I’ve officially become an old lady…. Today I bought one of those pill containers, you know, the ones that have the days of the week and you can store all your pills for each day. Except that now I’m on so many pills that I actually had to buy on that has a separate day […]

Floundering in a low, wishing for a high

I’m not sure what this post is going to be about; I feel like I have so much to get off my chest, but I can’t think of anything right now. I figured if I start typing, something might come out. So I’ll apologize in advance if this is all over the place. I saw […]

Nausea and tremors and weight gain, oh my!

Ah, side effects. As I was preparing to write this post, I decided to research as many medications as I could remember being on. (I know it sounds weird to say I don’t remember some, but I really don’t.) Since many of them have the same side effects and warnings, I’m just going to go […]

To Seroquel or not to Seroquel?

Staring at a blank screen. I feel like I’m back in university trying to write an essay. I want to be able to post in this blog every day, or at least as close to every day as I can. But today’s been… different. After my last post last night (or early this morning), I […]
