I spend too much money when I sleep

On Saturday, I cleaned my entire apartment — while I was awake and fully aware of what I was doing. On Saturday night, I sleep-shopped. The best I can figure is that since the apartment was completely clean, I didn’t have anything else to do, so I shopped instead. That’s right, I online shopped for two upcoming […]

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 […]

Looking for — relative — peace

“It’s not hypomania, it’s your anti-psychotic.” There’s a sentence I never thought I’d hear come from Dr. A’s lips, but it was one I heard at our appointment today. So the anti-psychotic, which by definition is meant to curb hypomania, is causing all the agitation I’ve been feeling lately. The not being able to sit […]

Queen of the Zopiclone Zombies

It’s almost 6 pm on Friday. I took two more Zopiclone (10 mg) last night after my last post and put on Finding Nemo, hoping to fall asleep on the couch to a movie that wouldn’t require me paying much attention. The last thing I remember  is the part where Nemo goes to the dropoff […]

I should still be sleeping!

*Warning*  This post is very self-pitying. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. It’s been about  22 hours since my last post. I managed to catch a one-hour power  nap exactly an hour before I had to start work. Other than that I didn’t sleep at all, although I did manage to make the day productive. […]

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 […]

One pill, two pill, three pill, four

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 […]

So tired of all of it…

It’s been a rough few days. Birthday week didn’t end the way I was hoping it would. In addition to getting way too drunk on Friday and the inevitable Saturday hangover/depression, my iPhone was stolen when I was at the bar. Ah crap. Not only can I not afford to replace it (which is actually […]

Sleepy and depressed… but there’s always hockey

Today hasn’t been a good day. I slept until 5 pm, mostly because I took a Zopiclone (7.5 mg) last night to help me sleep (I mistakenly called it Clozapine in an earlier post, which I’ve since corrected). As it turns out, I’ve taken it before, under the name Imovane, which I realized when I […]
